if it is what I say then it is on the DWA list, which means a licence is required to keep it in the UK, and no not deadly but you will know about it if you get tagged

It looks to be a Centruroides gracilis.

Individuals from North America are less venomous than their relatives from Central and South America.

(For example, C. gracilis from Cuba have a reported LD 50 value of 2.7 mg/kg, which is quite potent.)

If it is from Panama, then you can assume it has fairly potent venom.
