This little one was given to me last Fall by a local T collector that somehow inherited it from their neighbor. Their neighbor said it was a local species, but I'm not sure what species are around here or what species this is.

When I take students out to collect insects I always tell them to let me know if they come across any arachnid or reptile. This was found on our last trip to Arizona:

That first one would be Paruroctonus boreus.

The second is Hadrurus arizonensis.

Thanks for sharing!

Nice. I figured you'd know on those. I knew the second one, but the first I had no clue.
