Hello, and welcome to the forum.

Do you know the scientific name for the scorpion and/or can you post a picture?

welcome to the forum +1 to what callum said

normally level 1 is the lowest risk on the venom and level 4+ is highest

however seeing as a caribbean blue is a Rhopalurus junceus i would say its about a level 4 meaning quite venomous!

No, I'm sure you're right about what species it is. I just find common names funny sometimes.
