Well, get a top for the aquarium that you would plan to keep the scorpion in.
Also, they can NOT climb glass, so how would it possibly get out?
I don’t have a top on mine, and its not even that high, and my Emperor will try to get out, but to no avail.

Actually, you are totally wrong, if you are allergic to bee stings, you CAN die!

The venom is simular to that of a bee. The amount that is injected is alot larger. I can get stung by a bee and not think twice about it but I have been stung twice by emperors and both caused swelling and pain, so I guess I would say it is very possable for him to have a severe reaction if not die.

Your dad can ask his allergist to look up the Greer cross-reactivity between bee and scorpion venom and do a RAST test on any cross-reactive proteins to see if he’s got an increased susceptibility to have an allergic reaction. There is a fairly high number of false-negatives in RAST testing though, so even if the test comes back that there is no cross-reactive proteins involved, he should exercise caution. A positive test

Peanuts and bananas have certain proteins in common, so you can easily develop an allergic reaction to bananas if you have a peanut allergy. Same with animal venoms, and depending on what specific proteins your dad reacts to, he may indeed have a problem.

I have anaphylactic allergies to yellowjackets and natural rubber latex and cannot safely handle any elapids, spiders, or scorpions.

emperor scorpions and bees have the same chemical that causes people to go into shock so he will die, however, scorpions cant climb glass so how would he get stung in the first place?
