 Emperor scorpions

Are emperor scorpions docile or not ?
What hurt more there pinches or stings?
Should I wear gloves the first time I pick it up?
How do you tell the difference between a male or femal?
THANK YOU ALOT

Emps are the most docile of scorpions, though as I have found some individuals can be aggresive. I have never been stung but I hear that the venom is not very potent though I really dont think you want to find out your allergic the hard way. The pinch from an adult healthy male emp can snap pencils in half so as for pain that would really hurt. The first time you pick it up be very gentle and careful, if you scare it or hurt it the first time it wont be picked up as easy again for a long time. Probably should wear gloves. Males are usually smaller in body size but have larger claws than the females. Hope i helped.

hey i have been stung a few times and it really doesnít hurt that bad. but if you are allergic then Ur in trouble. as for pinches i have been pinched it wasnít too bad but it wasnít full grown and turns out it was a pregnant female. so i hope that helps.

Their stings arenít too bad but you will know youíve been stung,its best to avoid being stung though because you can form allergies to them...
And a pinch form a large adult can brake the skin sometimes...

As for sexing.
If you actually have a male and female its easier to do because you can compare.Anyway,males will have larger combs then females.Once youíve seen a few its quite easy to tell them apart.....
