Ok, first of all, no, scorpions are not poisonous, they are *venomous*. Yes, there is a difference. EVERY species of scorpion has venom and can cause some degree of pain, discomfort, illness etc.
Second, just because a person may be allergic to bees does not mean they will be allergic to scorpions and vice versa.

Go with a Emp there good for people.I have a Death Stalker Scorpion witch itís not to mess with either no matter what kind of scorpion you should alway show it respect.If i where to get stung by this killer iíd die in 20 min flat.Itís one of the most Venomous Scorpion on this earth.So yes do go with a Emp i have one and a Red Claw and a Flat Rock there cool but mine doesnít do nothing but sit there all day i sometimes see my Emp walking around the sitting then getting up again then sitting moveing stuff around its a very cool scorpion.Hope this helps and donít go thinking of buying a Death scorp For 1 god bless you if you did.What ya should do is this tho look up on scorpionís and like look at pics and stuff so the pet store donít go selling you that scorpion cuz they want money i know i worked at one.But yeah google the death scorpion and the look at a emp and look at that fat tail scorp thereís alot of cool oneís just gotta look at becarefull not to buy one that will kill you...

Well have fun finding your right scorpion and ttyl..

How many pet stores sell scorps that can kill you? I work at a pet store, and we sell emperors, asian forest, desert hairy, african dirt, and flat rocks. We, and all other responsible store owners, would never risk the lawsuit associated with selling someone a deadly scorpion. I donít know where you shop, but that must be one messed up store.

PetCo in particular is natorious for having uneducated employees and managment. I too have seen hots in there and they have no clue what theyíre selling. Granted, I havenít seen it very often and, every time I have I have informed the manager(s) of it and in most cases they have resulted to be more careful of what they order and sell. BUT, I HAVE seen Babycurus jacksoni, Androctonus bicolor, Androctonus australis and, I just about died when I saw this, Leiurus quinquestriatus.
