Well I suppose this was my own stupid fault, but I was cleaning out some of my cups and I noticed a half eaten cricket in my Hottentotta hottentotta cup. Now, I keep Androctonus, Leirius, and Tityus so I obviously have a pair of 10" tweezers around. I couldn't find those at the time and I have never had any trouble from this 4I Hottentotta hottentotta so I put my fingers in to grab the cricket and BAM. Little guy flipped his lid and tagged my right by my nail on my pointer finger. When he got me it was probably the equivilant of having my finger slammed in a car door with the next 3 hours having the sensation of a hot nail being jabbed into my finger over and over. At the 3 hour mark my hand got the pins and needles feeling and went a little numb but that was it! After which, I had a little red area and that's all folks! Stupid I know, I obviously never would of put my fingers in there with any of the Androctonus, Leirius, or Tityus though.
