I was stung by a brown scorpion while in art school in Mexico. What a headache! Now I find that I have them here in Missouri. When we built our house and finally got it closed up, found a 5" one while on the way to bed. Missed stepping on him thank God. Because we are on a south facing bluff we have them, rattle snakes and anything else that lives under a rock in a burrow.
