Well, I just bought myself an Emperor Scorpion yesterday.
He’s damn cool, and I pushed him onto my hand using a spoon, very gently pushing him, and once hes on your hand, its all good. He tried to go on the underside so I had to move my hand around and I let him on my bed, then I put him back in. I read if you handle them daily they get used to you. Just my experience, let me know what happens with you :)

ok..this could be hard...You can’t tame a scorpion..it’s a simple invert and has no memory or feeling, if it stings unless you have an allergic reaction just get over it..no big deal. there is no reason to handle it, but if you must, just grasp it by the big ball on the tail, pick it up, and put it down in your hand, try to handle on a table or such so if the clutzy little thing falls it doesn’t go splat.

the only time that u should really hold a scorp is to put it in another tank or something to hold it in while u clean the cage because holding the is really bad for their health

i agree with everything you say except for the hole "no feeling" thing, that pisses me off. to say a living creature has no feeling you are no better than the stupid rednecks that claim no animal has feelings. It gets scared it gets angry it eats drinks sleeps. if it is alive it has feelings. just cause it can’t cry doesn’t mean it can’t be herd!

you can hold a scorpion if you plan on being stung a few times every so often and don’t worry they can not kill you unless you are allergic

well I’m afraid you’ll just have to get over it. snakes, liz, and inverts, fish lack the part of the brain that has feelings..mamals have it...you’re snake doesn’t love, the scorpion doesn’t hate..it’s a fact sorry if it doesn’t fit in with your views of the world..the spider doesn’t like little timmy...to such creatures u r food threat or ignored till u become food or threat...they don’t love you....people who get tagged by their hots and killed by their retics learn this lesson the hard way, with goldfish, it’s no more correct, but far less dangerous.

sorry to kind of jump at u but I’m kinda an animal rights freak but anyways, i never said a scorpion can love or hate, i said they get angry queses i should of used a better word. lets try agitated there that’s what i meant. i am not saying it thinks "o that’s my old buddy he wont hurt me" or anything, just simply saying it has feelings. AS for the whole fish can’t feel pain thing i am going to have to disagree.

You lost me, who said fish can’t feel pain? animal rights is fine, but instinct and emotions are 2 diff things..even when agitated most herps and invert opperate on an instinctive lvl..a scorpion highly "angered" or aggitated will still behave a certain way..it will try to keep the threat in front of it..flee in reverse, back into a corner..sting, pinch, this is not a bad thing...it’s just how they behave.

my bad i guess i just took it wrong, pain is a feeling.

i don’t know if you saw were i stated i couldn’t get Pablo(my scorpion) to eat, but anyways this is kinda funny, i put crickets in his cage and they will get right in his face like before, only now he just pinches they till they die and throw them out of the wayLOL. If he isn’t eating it certainly isn’t because he can’t catch them. he killed like 3 today!
