Today I took some photos of three different scorpions I keep. All are Centruroides species and each scorpion was found in a different Mexican state.
Read the rest of Scorpions from three different Mexican states.
The so called "Deathstalker" scorpion, scientific name Leiurus quinquestriatus doesn't occur naturally in Mexico. You might have been stung by a Centruroides species, though, with are also members of the Buthidae family. Mexico has several Centruroides species that are considered medical significant.
