Recently molted scorpion near its exuvia

In the above photo the scorpion is looking for a better hiding place since its burrow got uncovered when I turned over the stone it was hiding under. It has very recently molted hence the white color of its exoskeleton. When the exoskeleton hardens out the color will get darker. Behind the scorpion you can see the cast off skin (exuvia).

This photo gallery is part of The volcano, which has more related photos (habitat, more scorpions).
