Giant Hairy Scorpions, Oh My!
They're creepy, they're crawly, and they're so cool! Giant Hairy Scorpions are the largest scorpion in North America and only live in the Sonoran and Mojave Deserts. These hairy arthropods may look scary, but like all animals, they are an important part of the ecosystem and won't hurt you as long as you give them space and respect. Join Rich to learn more about this amazing arthropod!
See you next time!
