Generally it is advised to *not* handle scorpions because, unlike tarantulas, they have two lines of defense/offense...claws and, of course, that telson.
Venom toxidity of scorpions varies. P. imperator are not very venomous, whereas the L.Q. is one of the most lethal scorpions in the hobby and yes, their venom *can* cause death. I think it would be safe to say that Reptileman does *not* handle it. He is a very experienced keeper and knows the dos and doníts of handling...especially scorpions.

There is a chart that can be used to determine toxidity of scorpions, itís called LD 50. As soon as I find it, Iíll post a link for yíall.

BTW, great scorps Rep!
