Hi All,
I found this outside my shower and not sure what scorpion this is and how venomous is it ?
Any info would be greatly appreciated

Dear Newbie,
It is our understanding that Scorpions with small pinchers and large tails are more venomous than those with large pinchers and small tails.  When it comes to Scorpions, we do not debate the toxicity of their venom.  We give all Scorpions respect because we understand that they are all capable of stinging.
