 Pick it up

Their are segments on the tail I call them knuckles because they work simular to the knuckle on your finger allowing the scorpion to bend its tail. When you look at the stinger on the end of the tail there is a "knuckle right below it that is the first knuckle below the stinger, if you grab the stinger from the sides and keep your fingers on the sides of the stinger and the first knuckle it will not be able to sting. Once they are out and you place them on your arm/hand or what ever just let the stinger go as they tend to calm down. I have been stung 3 times and can tell you from experience it hurts like hell but does no real damage.

Sorry they will pinch but it is alot like a big Crawldad(crayfish). Just want you to expect it to pull itself up and try because it will and I didn’t want you to drop it.
