Yesterday I found 5 Paruroctonus Silvestrii in about on hour of searching under mossy logs. The funny thing is that I have lived in Palm Springs for about four years and only have caught about 2 scorpions in all that time! Now Im going to school at UC Davis the local creeks and wood piles seem to be teaming with scorpions, centipedes, millipedes, ringneck snake, frogs, and salamanders. Only wish I had more time to go exploring and searching for such critters! But does any one have any explaination for such a high population density?
