If you ever find yourself in the Sonoran Desert in between the United States and Mexico, you may be greeted by the Arizona bark scorpion. These small scorpions are light brown in color and may look harmless, but their sting can be deadly. In fact, the Arizona bark scorpion takes the record as the most venomous scorpion on the North American continent. Their sting can cause between 1-3 days of intense pain, vomiting, numbness, and even partial paralysis. Many survivors have compared the sting to an electric shock.
