 New scorpion.

all species are venous possessing neurotoxic venom with one exception, which produces the cytotoxic (Hemiscorpius leptarus), the potency can be as harmless as a bee sting (P. imperater), unless ur allergic, to as powerful and dangerous enough to kill u in a few hours max (death stalker), some of the most toxic scorpions are in the buthidae family, like the deathstalker fat tail or thick tail scorpions, although the thick tails venom is not as potent as the death stalker or the hemiscorpius leptarus, its venom is still powerful. note scorpions use 2 different types or settings of stings or amounts of venom usually known as translucent and opaque venom, opaque being the most potent of this. the reason why the scorpions do this is because its "expensive" for there body to make, these venom settings are use to stun or warn and to kill prey and predators.

They have a moderate venom it is not deadly unless you are allergic but it hurts pretty bad i herd. the man i purchased it from said when he got stung he couldnt move half of his finger for around 6 hours.
