This illustration from 1967, depicted a dorsal view of the Arizona Desert hairy scorpion, Hadrurus arizonensis, North America’s largest scorpion, attaining a length of 5.5 inches. Though it is large, its venom is not very strong, and said upon envenomation, the discomfort is similar to that of a honey bee sting. However, an allergic reaction to the venom can be fatal.
