Arizona Bark Scorpions

By far the most dangerous. They love to hide under tree bark, palm trees, leaves and debris. Bark scorpions are the only climbing scorpions. The sting by the bark scorpion can cause an allergic reaction that can be fatal to the very young or old. The venom is neurotoxic and can cause numbness at the sting site, fever, increased heart rate, restlessness and other symptoms. They are small in size. Adults can reach almost two inches in length and have long thin pincers.
