but then again you also let your animals mix because they are "so nice and tame"...so why were you worried? you always say your gecko is nice....

Anyhoo! im glad the pandinus is ok!

I'm not going to have a whole lot of sympathy here, because any invertebrate hobbyist should pay attention to what he's doing and only deal with specimens when alert enough to do so competently. An emperor would be a tasty crunchy treat to a tokay.

Lesson learned: don't handle anything when tired or drunk (same effect). After a couple months of experience, handling loses its novelty anyway, so there's no real point to it with scorps (aside from demos for people). They're not going to get "used" to it the way a reptile can.

Thats true!
Handlings get's boring, and you see no point at handling scorps after a few months anyways, and the scorpions dont enjoy get handled Wink

thats because we are all more mature on here, even you two our youngest members are very knowledgable and mature so we never really have a need to tell anybody off
plus with it been a smaller forum none of us are trying to make a name for ourselves by being horrid.

On big forums you always get somoeone with 12 posts that is a reaaaaaal jerk just to get a reputation
