Scorpion in my bed

The other morning around 2am, I woke up to a burning sensation on my shoulder. I realised that something had stung me, switched on the light and found this little guy on my pillow. I took a photo of it and then relocated it well away from my bedroom. It’s probably around 3cm long. It’s the hottest time of Summer here and it has been very dry.

The markings on this Scorpion are quite pretty. Its small size may indicate it is immature. Because you did not react by squashing the hapless Scorpion that wandered into your bed, and because you relocated the creature, we are tagging your post with the Bug Humanitarian Award.
