PostSubject: handling scorpions (desert hairy)   11/14/2015, 7:15 pm

Hello

Is it bad to handle a scorpion often ?

How often is too much ?

The two desert hairy scorpions ive had in the past were to aggressive to be handled.

The desert hairy scorpion i got a few days ago is a lot more calm.

Ive handled her two days in a row. In the morning for about 10 to 15 minutes.

She does not seem stressed out at all when i am handling her.

Wondering if others handle there scorpion(s) often ?

I think it is mostly opinion. Some people suggest never handling your scorpions, others say handle them only occasionally, and others handle them pretty often.
Most experts suggest handling reptiles such as snakes about once or twice a week to keep down their stress, so perhaps scorpions would be similar to this.

i have some scorpions i can handle comfortably and they clearly enjoy it and others that don't - in particular one is terrified and another ready to strike and kill kill kill if I go near him with my hands! Mine are r.junceus so getting stung is a funny old experience...
