The bark scorpion is the only deadly one to humans in the US and it's found mostly in the deserts of AZ, NM and NV. I'm glad we don't have them at the coast.

I did not know that. I was once washing some old canning jars and brought up a white scorpion from the dish water. Someone said I was lucky it had not stung me as their sting was deadly. My sister once let out a scream. Dad came running to find her staring at a large tarantula dragging a dead wasp across the screen door (outside, thank goodness). That, of course, was in the Ozarks, not up here.


As I said, ask Missouri Conservationists. They know everything about Missouri wildlife. In my opinion, anyway.

Missouri Conservationist puts out a monthly (I think) magazine, that's really interesting. To me, anyway.

One of the best in the nation. Great articles and gorgeous photographs by real professionals. And it is free if you live within the state. :-)

We used to get it. I'm not sure why we don't anymore...

Maybe they had one of those months when they asked you to reconfirm and you missed it. Same thing happens to me. But you can go to their web site and ask them to reinstate you.

I lucked into a copy of the children's version just this month, left behind by a family that had moved long ago. The magazine is still coming. Wherever they are, they need to do a change of address. Anyway, it is great - as well written and as enjoyable as the adult version. No talking down to the children. Very scholarly.

Thank you everybody! I’m from western IL, so the spiders mentioned we have here. Tarantulas just freak me out. A lot. Nightmare worthy to me.
