Learned something new (to me) today, Idaho has scorpions & they're fast, sneaky little buggers. Out shooting in the boonies today I found one near the targets, scooped it up in cup someone had left & carried it back to the truck. The whole time it played dead & didn't move. Dumped it out on my hood, went to grab my phone to take a pic, turned around & it was gone.
I had heard & read numerous times that they are here but hadn't seen one before today.

Never read that they were that tricky though, the scorpion played opossum :D

Mostly yellow, kinda small. Not including the claws or the tail, I bet the body could have fit on a 50cent piece.

Looking at pics for this region, it kinda looked like the yellow ground scorpion but with a little more black to it. The pics for the northern scorpion show one with a little too much black coloring. Maybe a half-breed? :D

According to the interwebs, none of the common species in Idaho are all that poisonous to humans - sure it hurts but they're not deadly. Of course, that is just the common species & doesn't include any scorpions someone brought in & released either by intention or accident (i.e. hitch hiker on the undercarriage).

It was the only one I've seen in Idaho so far and I have no intentions of handling one by hand in any case so I'm not too concerned. I was using a stick just to pick up the board I found it under but my fear was of finding rattlesnakes. So, now I have another reason to be leery of lifting boards to use as targets :D Still won't stop me from doing it though :twisted:

HAHA Yeah just like according to IL experts the Brown recluse spider can't survive in northern IL. I know 2 people, one my father , whom both have been bit by them up here. Insects have a habit of not caring what the experts say about where they can and can't live.

Yup. That's why I referred to it as "interwebs" & made sure I mentioned that it was only in reference to the common species.
Without a pic, I can't get any more specific as to what kind it was.
Maybe I'll find another one now that I'll be looking for them? I'll get a pic of that one if/when I do.
