I'm not great at ID's but I can positively say 99.9% sure, that is not an Emp. Below is what an Emp. looks like. I'd say a Bark species... then again :/, I'm not the ID guy. Some ones gonna come by and tell you soon enough though.

Looks like some kind of Centruroides to me but I'm not sure.
You can have a look through ...

Scroll down to the Centruroides and have a look at them.

In that case, don't keep it on sand, and be EXTREMELY careful that no one gets stung. These guys are a 5 out of 5 on the venom scale.

olvi you have 9 posts and it seems as you don't have any more scorps.
stay away from those.. like streettrash said 5/5 venom.
i'd suggest buy an emp or another forest species, not a potentially dangerous desert species

Peope are concerned, however.. get what you want. Accept the risks of getting stung. Make sure it doesnt happen. Make sure noone else can get close to it.

Basically it.. Oh yes and enjoy taking care of it.

Tom, T. stigmurus come from Brazil. Not exactly a desert environment . . .

cheers

Finally, someone in it for the animal.. not for its venom... bounce
It is creepy to have around in the wilds, but I doubt they are those landsharks people pretend them to be.
That goes for every scorpion btw.

what venom scale are you looking at when you said 5 out of 5 ? and i doubt that any Tityus sp. will kill a healthy adult
This is not attended as a flame towards you Streettrash, but the more rightfull infomation we can spread the better. And running around and thinking alot of sp of scorpion is alot more dangerous then they really is, can do alot of harm to hobbist of scorpions Very Happy

PostSubject: Re: Quest   6/4/2011, 1:08 pm

I agree. All the stuff that I have come across regarding care for Tityus serrulatus as well as Tityus stigmurus lists them as 5 of 5. Perhaps this is just to ensure caution will be used with these, though I have also read that T. serrulatus is responsible for a number of deaths each year in Brazil. Of course these deaths could be children, or old people I suppose...



Well upon digging a bit further, it seems that my American brethren are once again blowing things out of proportion. Most of the research papers I found on this subject were listing children as the subjects. Seems that they are potent, but as you said, not man killers. I still wouldn't want to test it personally.

PostSubject: Re: Quest   6/6/2011, 12:40 pm

let me quote from the scorpion files on a article about LQ

" Venom:
This is one of the worldst most dangerous scorpion, with a very potent venom. This species are medical important, and cause several deaths each year. LD value of 0.16 - 0.50 mg/kg!

A study from Israel shows that only localized reactions occur in 97% of the victims, but the venom can be potentially letal in children because the severity of the symptoms is weight-dependent "

scorpions aint really as bad as ppl think.

True, but what kills a kid, will make sure you hump the floor in agony as an adult though. I know I would after getting stung by whatever invert.
