been stung once not bad unless your allergic, but i handle my every day

the smaller the scorpion the more dangerous the sting also More painful i was once stung buy a little blue and tan one in new Mexico (not sure what kind) but it felt like someone hit me on the hand with a freakin’ baseball bat, it sucked

with emperor scorpion don’t worry about the sting, worry about the pinch that hurts like hell, it will slit you wide open

lol well unless you eat the scorpion it’s simply venomous not poisonous (having to do with injection vs. ingestion as the delivery system). Secondly emp. are not all that bad, about that of an ave. bee sting, and I have been stung a few times.....sifting by hand through the scorps to pick out the ones I wanted, lol don’t do that. I have also been stun by a few local species also unpleasant, lol.
