what's grosser than gross?

I'm going with these awesome photos of our "newest addition".

A very pregnant scorpion the Pita found on our back outside wall last Thursday.

Yippee, lucky us - - - they started hatching [or whatever they "do"] last night!

Don't worry, we have "normal" pets too.

Can it get any grosser?  I literally dry-heaved.

So does your hubby/spouse or significant other collect anything you wish she/he wouldn't?

Karine said...

Did the scorpion sighting trigger the new color format? If so, I guess this "gross" discovery was worth it!

I would have nightmares about the scorpions escaping.

If you dry heaved and actually saw it.. and I dry heaved from behind a computer screen... Lord knows what would have happened if I would have seen it in the real...
Thankfully my man collects nothing this I dislike..

Oh man!! I love Arizona, but that is one part I would not love!

Anne said...

I feel itchy all over...please, take it away!!!!

EZEthan said...

That's actually pretty cool... I'm just glad I can look at it on a blog and not in real life!

Patrick Mahoney said...

Huh. The egg sacs - not really into it. Pretty cool photos though.

Kelly Leigh said...

Am I the only one who thinks this is AWESOME!? How cool, not only do u have a scorpion, u also get to see it have cute babies! Does yours glow in the dark? Some scorpion species do if you shine a black light over them I think. Wow!

Caratunk Girl said...

Ugh. I don't like scorpions at all. I was on a trip on the Grand Canyon and we had a black light and the whole freaking beach was lit up with the things...made for some restless sleeping.... Lots of babies on mom's back? Cool picture - but ugh.

KC (my 140 point 6 mile journey) said...

my skin is crawling and i can't stop scratching....thanks! the only scorpions i've found in the house have been dead thank goddess. i hope all of those itty bitty baby scorpions don't find their way inside. good news, neither my husband or myself collect anything weird like bugs. nothing alive let's put it that way.

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

Woa..that is creepy and scary! Are they in an spider cage type thing? I think I would definitely be afraid of those babies getting loose!

Adam said...

Mannnnnnnnnnnnn. knock on wood, we haven't had these yet. Thank god - we even have a pool! But, we spend a lot of money on an exterminator to avoid them!

Matty O said...

Interesting this was before I "knew" of EMZ!

Uhhhh, yeah, preggo scorpo no no.

YUK!

The only thing those babies would be seeing was the bottom of my shoe!
