I was just wondering how you guys feel when people refer to scorpion "poison".Am I the only one that gets perturbed when people ask how poisonous a scorpion is?See to me, poison is ingested,venom is injected.They are two very different things,and should be treated as such and not interchangably.So where do you stand?

*** This is of course just my opinion.I'm not trying to start a heated debate,just seeing how others feel about it.Let's keep this mature and civilized please!***

i agree. i have a habit of always saying venom. To me its the same thing when someone calls a magazine for a firearm a clip. Its just sort of a pet peeve on my end.

I'm siding with those who say they are different as well. I mean, I could drink rattlesnake venowm and it wouldn't do anything but taste bad. I get bit by a rattler, and I'm messed up. Now if I drank a form of poison, I would be messed up, but I'm fairly certain it wouldn't be as bad if a poison were injected. Although it could still cause problems.

Deffo venom i think people who refer to it a poison just dunno what they are going on about obviously lol Smile

Venomous animals store toxins internally and release them through biting or stinging, disabling what ever organism they bite or sting. Poisonous animals usually secrete toxins through their skin so that whatever creature bites or touches them is poisoned. The toxins have different uses. Venomous animals use toxins to help them capture prey. Poisonous animals use toxins to defend themselves. One uses toxins to make dinner while the other uses toxins so they arenít dinner.

Interesting. Makes sense though. You just seem like an interesting person to carry a conversation with.

They are 2 different, venom is injected, poison = ingested. I worked in a specialty reptile store during my college years, people would come in constantly and annoy me with that kind of crap. It even turned out to become a huge pet peeve where I would even correct the customers.

''Wyatt and bex sitting in a tree, K. I. S. S. I. N. G..........'' Someones got an admirer lol. Sorry, I'll shutup and stop being immature Very Happy lol.

Venom and poison are 2 different things. However I can completely see why people can get confused between the two.

I gently correct people on the difference between the two... once. If I have to constantly be explaining the difference between the two, I eventually decide that the person in question possesses some sort of mental deficiency.

Wow, that took less time than I thought. LOL. Hey can I help it if she's cute and into scorps?? Sadly, 'Ol Wyatt here is tied down. But BEX is too so no worries. LOL. (I really hope no one is offended by that comment. This is not a group of people I want to cross.)
ANYWAYS CALLUM, Most if not all of the people on this forum make good conversation. From what I have seen by BEX's posts in the past, she would def be one of them. There are quite a few people here I see alot and never get a chance to actually carry a conversation with. Very Happy

Whenever i'm asked if my scorpions are poisonous I just say "Nope" and leave it at that until they ask further. Usually stops the stupid people in their tracks and they walk away saving me from using their face as a skateboard.

Wyatt is a cowboy. There's a big difference between a cowboy, and a redneck that thinks he's a cowboy. I bet Wyatt pulls his girls chair out for her before he sits down to eat.
