Well, exactly he could have easily taken 4 or 5 and had in exess of that figure in captivity, I'm not saying vittatus are rare but not all of their young make it to adult. But come on 42?

Wow, 42. Thats impressive. I take it they are pretty common in your area since you were able to find so many.

they are on a patch of property where the owner does not want them, and so i am allowed to collect there. I found a great deal more than the ones i took, and the only reason that i took any at all is because there are quite a few people i know who are interested in them. Trust me, i am not depleting any populations (unfortunately for owner of the land). Most of the collection trips i go on are catch and release, this time i brought back some for others.

I guess that's mutual benefit:
-you, enjoyed collecting
-the land owner, got rid of the scorps
-and the scorpions, get a chance to live.
