There are scorpions in Argentina and Chile. Are there any in Uruguay?

Yes, up north I have seen them, small dark charcoal in color, about 1 1/2 long, usually in the soil but are small enough to come inside if they find an opening.

in Rincon del Indio (close to Punta del Este) we have the little ones ALL the time - in the house and out. Inside they've all been small (1 inch or so) but outside (under a rock we moved) they can be quite large (7-8 inches).

Yes. In fact I found this thread because I just caught one and was looking to see how common they are. It seems there are 9 species in Uruguay. I am not sure where all the different species live though. The one I caught was 1in long as was in my kitchen.

the locals tell me these little black ones can sting but mildly so. I've never seen one as big as Sylk described. Anyway, they are not deadly.
