This seems like a crazy question but I just bought a Centruroides Sculpturatus for my 3rd scorpion. I was already aware they are very venomous and could be very dangerous if it stings a child or elderly person, which I am neither so I wasn't worried. However, I read a sting report on a 200lb man that had a very bad reaction to it so now I am concerned. I am only a 105lb woman but in relatively good health. I will be taking every precaution to not get stung but of course there is always a risk when you have them as pets. If I do happen to get stung should I go to the hospital since I am so light weight?
