Thanks guys! Talked to a zoologist here in Norway who said that it's not very poisonous. Nice to know, since I almost wiped my face with it (it was on my towel).

Scorpions are exiting creatures.

It is a Lychas, and they are not very venomous. I don't know the species, this is not "my genus". There shouldn't be much side effects besides pain and swelling.......nice find!!!
