ocxhcxlife Here's a decent example of the differences in the Hadrurus arizonensis species. The specimen on the left is just your normal Hadrurus arizonensis while the specimen on the right is much more pale in color and lacking blacks. The scorp on the the right is Hadrurus arizonensis "pallidus". They are the same species although some would consider it a subspieces of Hadrurus arizonensis, others consider it a locale or morph. I am not sure if "pallidus" is actually a true subspecies although I did find these two in completely different areas. The one on the left was found near Pioneertown, CA in a higher desert area(Mojave Desert) where they were plentiful. The one on the right was found in Whitewater, CA which is a lower desert area(Colorado Desert). I've also heard that "pallidus" are generally larger as well but have yet to confirm that as this is the only specimen I've found there. #Hadrurus #arizonensis #desert #hairy #scorpion #deserthairyscorpion #venomous #inverts #arachnids #california #scorpionsofinstagram #nofilter 1w

  •   ryanxgx95 How potents their venom? 1mon
  •   ocxhcxlife Very weak to my knowledge. Some say it's around the equivilant to a honey bee's sting. I've never been stung by one of these though. LD50 is 168mg/kg although allergic reactions could obviously cause some problems. @ryanxgx95 1mon
