Stripe-Tail Scorpion

I know this isn’t a lizard, but I still take pictures of them from time to time when things are slow. It’s (I believe so anyway) a stripe-tail scorpion (VaejovisĀ spinigeris), one of the more common scorpions I run into when flipping stuff over herping. The sting from these guys is maybe a little painful, but otherwise completely harmless to humans. Keep that in mind next time you see one out there trying to make a living and the douchebag behind you is yelling for its death.
