H.Hottentotta-No known deaths to my knowledge, unless it's the uncommon allergic reaction. venom is about a 3-3.5/5 rating, hurts likea muther if they get you but you won't die.

assuming the rest are the same abouts.

Hurts like hell and you might get a few symptoms other then pain like a little bit of heart rate/pressure changes.

H. hottentotta is considered medically significant. That one probably hurts the worst.

Keep in mind that a healthy adult is unlikely to die from any scorpion sting.

If your emperor scorpion stops eating, don't panic.
