Probably the result of movies like 'the Mummy'.

I am willing to bet anything that you are right about it being a P.imperator. I think they don't use a Handrurus arizonensis because they aren't as calm and easily manipulated as emps.

It won't hurt to be on sand for a short while. I actually went into a major chain store that had a desert setup full of emps and had the employee tell me that P. imperator "were a desert species and this is how they should be kept" so then I asked if they might have any more humid species like from the rainforests. The so called "expert" said no that they only had this desert species. Then I said "well what about these P. imperator that you have wrongly housed in a desert setup that are from the rainforest?" He just stood there and drooled as I walked out.

I was thinking about the movie 'The Scorpion King' with the rock, also alot of emperors up in the African desert. :confused: I think it is the docile factor as was mentioned, and also that they look fearsome all big and black.

you would think in a professionally made video they would know to use a desert species.

just like you'd think in a big budget hollywood movie they would know as well, but don't
face it emps are easier to work with and if there is an accident there is very little to worry about

yea true, it just seems so out of place for us scorp people. at least use a desert hairy or something and get someone who knows what their doing to work with it

I don't think they are concerned with what is accurate in movies/videos. Most people watching have no idea what type of scorpion they are looking at. They are using a particular animal because of its appearance.

well.. for this video it would have been really easy.. it's 3 sec of footage of a scorp walking, so it would have not been that hard to pull off...

but yes, most people don't know the difference>>> although to me, they mine as well have put a poison arrow frog or lobster walking there :? it just doesn't fit.

oh yea, i don't think he rocks the halk at all! he should have just stayed with his old hair cut lol :/

Or die, maybe we can convince him to hold a Lq for the next vid ;)
