So I was getting some dirt out of my AFS's water dish, and she went for my hand (Which had a silly thick glove on it), stung the glove, and... HISSED???

So, scorpions can hiss?

Whoops, totally missed that thread haha.

I find it completely bizarre that she just did that. It was no quiet hiss either, this was loud.

Heterometrus spp. do it by rubbing their chelicerae on a special rough patch on the first segment of the pedipalps. That's why you may notice them twitch their mouthparts and raise their "arms" when you hear it.

Parabuthus spp. that are capable do so by rubbing the telson on their tergites.

What's scary is watching something like a T. blondi hiss at you while rearing up with its fangs out (yes, Ts can stridulate too).
