    Neat! i used a dead Centruroides vittatus in my 8th grade bug collection....it was the only scorpion in the class! i always wanted to keep scorps but they just freak my mom out because of the weapons they carry. i want a Whip scorpion (vinegaroon) cause they are so cool! that and an emperor scorp. congrats! just a question...arent they highly poisonous? i read that Centruroides vittatus has a sting that would make you wish you were dead haha.

    Centruroides are a memeber of a dangerous family however they really dont pose much danger to healthy adults, even the EXTREAMLY dangerous species of north Africa and the middle east dont pose a serious threat to the average healthy adult, however alot of adults in these regions are malnurished, and for one reason or another wouldnt fall under the "healthy adult" category. most deaths by scorpion stings are the very young, older ppl with heart or renal problems or have a severe allergic reaction.

    inshort, im not any more worried about them than i would be a bee while gardening. its supposed to hurt like hell but its unlikely to cause any real trouble

    I have your phone number. I think I should make a call to a certain person and discuss scorpians with her. Give me a few minutes to think up what I want as the blackmail booty. What snakes do you own again?

    Centruroides gracilis is the most wicked looking scorpions of this genus. I had 5 of em, look mean, but are such wimps. Scared of tiny crickets. They would try to catch them, but get scared and run away I got stung by some scorps I collected in Mexico, that was real fun
