    θάνατος ἐπὶ πρεσβύτου?
    This report is very intersting!
    Can you know with absolute certainty the death of man?

    Do you live on mainland or an island?

    Sorry to necro this but I found it convenient that this thread covers BOTH of the scorpion I own; H petersi and M gibbosus. They're two scorpion I hear very little about too as I guess they're not commonly kept in the states.

    Was hoping someone else might be able to chip in about Mesobuthus gibbosus
