 New scorpion

i plan on getting 2 more scopions to add to the collection i was thinking bout a desert hairy which i finally found after 3 months of looking on swiftinverts.com and i just found a european death stalker at my pet shop today thats only 34.99 yes i know the death stalker is the 2nd most venomous scorpion in the world iím advanced enough to know how to keep one of these species without being killed, problem is my mom only sees the how dangerous the scoprion is and not that i can keep one safely how do i show her that i can keep one.

european death stalker

What exactly is a European Death Stalker? If youíre talking about Leirus quinquestriatus then that is the MOST venomous, not the 2nd most. Also, I doubt itís anything dangerous as most pet stores do not have sufficient insurance to sell those species. If you want a truly dangerous scorpion, they usually must be purchased from either fellow hobbyists or specialty dealers.

Why not get something as aggressive as a death stalker but not as venomous? Itíd be just as fun to watch without the danger.

Sorry not experianced enough. Leiurus quinquestriatus and Leiurus quinquestriatus hebreus are the MOST venomous species on earth. Trust me I know I have 10 of them. I do not suggest this scopion at all unless you get some more experiance. H. arizonensis...those are great for a second species. They are big and love to eat. If you need any help please visit my site and PM me (same name) I might be able to help you with caresheets.
Cheers
Eddy
