found this little guy under the bathroom rug, i think its the Northwest Forest Scorpion, but i thought i should ask your opinion just to be safe, its only about an inch long and prefers to play dead rather then turn agressive. love the site, keep up the great work!

California Forest Scorpion

Dear adric,
Thank you so much for sending in your photograph.  We did a web search for Northwest Forest Scorpion, and we found a BugGuide page on the California Forest Scorpion,
Uroctonus mordax, that looks just like your Scorpion.
