  Church camp scorpion.

  Just a little brown scorpion tucked underneath a lacrosse ball.  I got him at church camp where the boys of my cabin would go on scorpion patrol every night as I gave them an inservice on insects, wasps and arachnids.  We killed a couple hundred scorpions that week and a dozen Black Widows.  I lined up the big gallon jugs along the front wall and we had a few specimens of everything interesting.
  Only had one kid stung- against advice, orders, reason.  The teenage stuff.   He tried to stash on in a ziplock bag to take home.

I'll bet the "stung kid" has a new respect for the REAL WORLD.
