Androctonus Australis is the deadliest scorpion in the world, not leiurus quinquestriatus.

Highest dose your probley looking at something like Parabuthus trans or Androctonus australis

Lowst LD50 thats the LQ

The reason Androctonus kills more ppl is because it can give a higher dose of venom


Even a Hadrurus would have a chance of killing you is it had a venom blabber the size of a grapefruit Very Happy

trying to locate some infomation about the dose a A.australis can delivere so we can compare it to the LQ's dose

If I'm correct, more people come into contact with them ... Also, they are more aggressive than LQ's.

Correct me if I'm wrong Smile

check this out

The highst amount of venom i have been able to find injected is 0.6mg sadely it doesnt say wich species can do this
But lets take into acount that A.australis is a very large species of scorpion compared to LQ wich can deliver 0.225mg venom per injection, so lets pretend that it can deliver 0.6mg venom

so taking the lowst values i have been able to find
A.australis ( LD50 = 0.32mg/kg )
Lq ( LD50 = 0.16 )

A.australis needs 22,4mg venom to reach the LD50 value if a person has a wieght of 70kg so it kinda needs to sting me 37,3 times before i reach that amount

Lq needs 11,2mg venom to reach the LD50 value and needs to sting 49,7 times

so even if the LQ has the lower LD50 its not "as deadly" as a A.australis

Allso since A.australis is often found near humans we can be sure that small children is often stung then strong adults, but even so the current health of the ppl allso plays a big part in this, and since A.australis is found in alot of 3 world contries the general health of the ppl there aint so good,
