Default Scorpions

One of the members said they were thinking about collecting scorpions... I was wondering if anyone else had ever collected/collecting the tiny critters themselves?

To get the ball rolling, I have a currently Emperor (Pandinus Imperator) and I've had a Desert Hairy (Hadrurus Arizonis) in the past.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

I've killed a small force of them once...

Oh, you mean real scorpions. Not the Eldar thingies.

Yeah, I used to want one, but was always too startled at the way they dart. :-\

Now what'd you do that for? None of the African scorpions are particularly deadly, if I remember correctly, they just hurt like a bitch if you get stung.

Now the South/Central American scorpions... those you have to watch out for.

We had a small scorpion stroll through our camp one night during my trip to the Southwestern US.

Also found a wee little baby one underneath a rock. It was seriously about | | that big.

I've been stung (whatever you call getting injected with toxins through it's tail) by which was not fun, but I wouldn't mind having one (endless hours creeping out my family and girlfriend lol)

Not scorpions, but I used to capture spiders with my bare hands back in grade school. Of course it helps that the spiders around here aren't exactly dangerous, hell the only time one bit me was when i was dumb enough to try and capture one guarding an egg sack. Had a bit of a burning sensation in my hand for a few hours, but that was all
