I live in Springfield, which is between New Orleans and Baton Rouge in southeast Louisiana. I found a scorpion today under a pot. I think the species is Centruroides Vittatus. They commonly dwell in southwest Louisiana, so I find it very odd that I found one here. I'm going to buy a small plastic aquarium and keep it.I have read and heard that some species of scorpion are located here in Louisiana. Does anyone know how far south they reside. And what species are able to be found.
possibly mistook a vinegarone for one?- LOLI have had one person tell me their son found a "big black scorpion" underneath a rock somewhere this far south (i forget where) but I have little faith in it as A) there was no proof and B) we don't have "big black scorpions" here.
