Today i was at the pet store and mentioned during conversation with one of the employees that i had an emperor scorpion. He told me that he once saw an emperor scorpion that was 2 feet long (24 inches). The guniess book of world records says that the largest scorpion ever to live was 14 or 17 inches. Is this guy feeding me a load of crap? or does he speak the truth? He also said that the owner cut off its stinger so it was safe to handle.
