Scorpions in Montana

Several years ago, my kids claimed that they had seen a scorpion in the bluffs north of Lewistown. Everyone knows that scorpions don't live in Montana, but the picture they drew was definitely a scorpion. And it turns out that the northern scorpion lives in eastern Montana, so they were right. It is a small nocturnal scorpion that glows under black light; it isn't fatal to humans, which is nice to know!
