The mountain rises above the Central Asian town of Kadamzhay and is called Kitovka in Russian. The mountain was dubbed Kitovka by Russian settlers in the second half of the 20th century, when Kyrgyzstan was part of the USSR.
My friend Roman Gilmanov is a great English-Russian translator and photographer. He photographed this nice scorpion on March 8, 2014, in a Central Asian mountainous settlement called Kadamzhay, which is situated in Batken region of the southern part of Kyrgyzstan.
