Advertisement Hey guys, I'm new to keeping scorps, but I have lots of experience with fast/defensive tarantulas (Poecilotheria, Pterinochilus, Heteroscodra). I've recently become extremely interested in getting an Androctonus bicolor. I've done a lot of research, and I'm well aware of their potent venom and nasty dispositions. I feel that they are in many ways similar to tarantulas, and that as long as I give them the respect they deserve, I'll be fine. Do you guys think that I would be ok getting an Androctonus with no previous scorpion experience? Also, how fast do these guys move, compared to something like a Pokie or an OBT?
