Hentz Striped Scorpion

Another species added to my Chassahowitzka WMA project…The Hentz Striped Scorpion. While kneeling down taking some photos of a plant, I glanced down to the left for a split second and saw this little critter scrimmaging through the pine needles heading right towards me.

This was very interesting indeed photographing a scorpion in its natural habitat, however trying to get a video was unsuccessful due to those fast little legs!
