I don't have a favorite species.

Genus would be the Centruroides and Tityus genus

I like me some C.noxious, suffusus, elegans, Gracilis, vittatus...

Tityus, woowweeeee, those are amazing too.

C.Elegans are my fav CEnt. I've owned.

And tityus magnimanus is my fav. tityus genus


Androctonus are another cool genus(Most)
A.Mauritanicus was my fav. Andro I've owned.

By "dangerous scorpion" they really mean "anything in the Buthidae family, even though only around ~25 out of the 800+ species are considered medically significant."

It's only in Europe though.

So if you're elsewhere you can acquire them.
