    I was searching for some scorpion information and then I found this place. Unlike the forum back in China, I really admire the atmosphere here. Everyone is so polite, really is a forum for common hobbies!
    Then I came up with the idea of signing up, surprisingly found that no vpns are required. Well, since I am a chinese, I may not have got used to commenting in English. Some grammar mistakes might will be made, hope u can understand. : )
    But unfortunately, my parents forbid me to raise at home. So at first, I kept them secretly under my bed, and due to no socket around for me to keep them warm, many scorps died in winter. Laterly I was caught keeping scorps. They won't allow me to, so I had to give up. For another reason is that, the personal qualities in China forum is really bad, u can see quite a lot of people arguing, framing each other. The most regular thing I've argued with them was which name is better, the latin or the common ones? Unlike here, Chinese forums have their chinese name for each common scorp species. And some of them are often confused with others. They have more common names than here, so I think that classification is quite important, they'd better translate directly from the latin names. But they just don't see it, not to mention other stupid viewpoints. So I can't bear it. I left the social circle, stopped raising scorps, but I still study them, through papers and those information I can find.
    Here is the list of the scorps I've raised before I quit(Before all the new species shipped into China recently):

    You may see that I hadn't touched vaejovidae family, hadogenes spp and uroplectes spp, which might be quite common here.
    Except from scorps, I've also raised some spiders, tarantulas, mantis, centipedes, gecocks, etc. Also some crustacea and insects. But the largest pets I've kept was a crocodylus siamensis and some varanus niloticus juveniles.
    That's all, my self-introduction.
    I sincerely hope that we can have a joyful discussion here. : )
    This is the case I kept my archnids.

    Quite a collection! If you came to learn and develop your appreciation for the hobby you are in the right place.
    You had some species that really are on my wish list!

    Ah ah, basically you sleeped above a pure 'Venom INC.' prior. Lovely :kiss:

    China is one of my fav. nations ever (and I love to collect Chinese historical weapons, such the mighty 大刀 sword) and I'm always happy to see Chinese users.

    Yeah, actually I have some questions on some species's classification. Also I hope someone can give me a reliable latin translator website.
