If a leiurus quinquestriatus stings you how long do you have to live with no medical attention? I'm just curious I didn't get stung or anything.

A healthy adult human won't die.

Young / elderly / infirm / weak immune system? Good question.

there is a very low chance of dying.. alot of pain but I don't think there would be any long lasting damage.

now if a Hemiscorpius lepturus gives you a good dose of venom, I would be pretty worried. Smile

Well the species is one that I would really enjoy owning. I did some research on them and alot of info sites said they are possably the most deadliest scorpion in the world. For that reason I am doubting weather I should get one.

I recently read that even though they would sting you.. they dont give you a full dose... just enough to make you think twice about going near them again... i'll see if i can find the page again. But as mike said anyway from what i have researched so far

What about the androctonus mauritanicus or the bicolr ? less venomous then the leiurus quinquestriatus?

L.q. has the most potent venom in terms of "drop for drop." Some Androctonus spp. can inject more, and they occur in inhabited areas more often, so they may result in more deaths per year.

Well if you had a choice to own one or the other one being L.q. and other being a bicolor what would you choose and what one is more hardy?

I would rather be stung by an L.Q. I doubt they would totally empty out on you, venom is costly to produce.. I don't think they would waste much on you. I think androctonus Sp. are a bit more trigger - happy.

They can leave you with permanent problems though.

I have some heart problems so getting stung by a potent scorpion would be more dangerous to me.
