Advertisement I've seen so many threads with some very nice scorpions. Most of them are all exotic species. While those scorpions are wonderful, lets not forget our own species, found in the US. Lets see some of our own, backyard, scorpions. I'll get started with one of my favorite species. Superstitionia donensis, one of the smallest species I own. Adult can be less than 1", babies are crazy small. I collected these guys in several places in central Arizona.
