I see these mouse-sized scorpions all over the place in the Sonoran desertscrub. I always stop to play with them at least once.

You have way cooler scorpions than we do here in Missouri.
You ever keep any of these as pets?
I have kept one arizonensis before, and he was awesome. I kept one for a few years and it was surprisingly entertaining, tirelessly maintaining the burrow, and sometimes starting completely over for seemingly no reason. This was at an apartment at the base of a mountain here in Phoenix, so we had quite a few invert visitors … “Filthy Steve”, who lived in a fish bowl in the living room, primarily fed on tresspassing crickets and Solifugae.
Centroides are our most common household pest, to the begroan of our bare feet. I could probably find 10 of them or more in the garage right now.
