A poorly-informed article wrote:
It wasn't just any scorpion -- it was a baby scorpion, which is even more venomous than it's adult counterpart.

Mad

At least they remembered to call it venomous and not poisonous.

It looked like a baby C. sculpturatus . . . so painful, yeah, but nothing to worry about at that size (unlike what the article would have the poor uninformed people of Arizona believe).

That bit about a baby being more venomous than an adult just made me feel embarased for these people lol

Anyone with any sort of sense would think "hmmmm baby scorps, not as bad as an adult cause theres less venom"

dafties lol

The article probably claimed that because rattlesnake babies (one of the few other dangerously venomous creatures in that part of the country) are just as potent as adults -- still, they're not MORE potent . . . Ugh.
