How to Identify a Scorpion
Scorpions have a distinctive physical appearance that include a flattened body shape known as dorso-ventrally flattened. Being broadly joined to the head, scorpions exhibit a segmented body. Along with one pair of formidable pincers, the head bears eyes. They are equipped with eight legs and have a much narrower long tail extending from the rear portion of the body. At the end of their tail is a stinger, which is the terminus of the tail. It is bulbous with a thin spike at the end.
The most common types of scorpions in Alabama include the Hentz striped scorpion and southern unstriped scorpion. Though these scorpions are relatively small, they often wander into basements, garages, and other parts of the home. When it comes to their sting, they do not necessarily pose a threat. Though the sting can be painful, the only concern is the potential variation of allergic reaction the person may experience.
