That's crazy! I've noticed that their sensory features are a lot better than other inverts. My scorps and Ts would never of noticed the cricket that fast!

Yeah. I'm definitely not going to attempt this. I'll handle any buthid over this guy any day.

And yeah, I've heard of Cacoseraph. He's a crazy dude!

What do you think the chances of a myocardial infarction (heart attack) happening after being envenomated is in a young male such as myself? I might end up getting rid of this guy. All of this stuff I'm reading is pretty scary.

Btw, I have "Mitral Valve Prolapse." I think that I fall into the category of "infirm" even though it feels like I'm growing out of it as time goes on. Haven't had any bad episodes in about two years.

Generally, MVP is a benign disorder. However, MVP patients with a murmur, not just an isolated click, have a general mortality rate that is increased by 15-20%

Thanks for the info but I didn't really get what you said. I'm not sure what a "benign disorder" is. The only time my heart acts up is usually when I bend down to pick something up and breathe the wrong way -- then it'll start beating hard and fast -- but I can usually get it under control within seconds. The last time I had an episode was roughly two-years-ago. I did what I just mentioned and it wouldn't stop. When that happens, I take meds to make me calm ... Sometimes so calm that I pass out.

I'm not sure what type of role this would play in a case of an envenomation by my de haani or LQs.

Edit: Found out what "benign" means Smile

I don't think you need to get rid of a 'pede because of that sort of health condition -- I just think you need to exercise normal caution (which includes not handling them).

Eh, I dunno. LQs don't really scare me, though.

I put it up for trade and got offered 15 P. murinus slings for it but their bite is probably just as bad and they're Ts, so obviously they can get out of almost anything with ease Razz

If I don't get a decent offer by Monday then I'll keep it Smile

If a dehaani's venom is higher than a B. jacksoni, then yes.
