What's up...me again. Long time no see, eh? Anyway, just curious as to the level of stress a scorp my encounter while being handled. I love to handle my emps while I myst their cages. They always want to get out and as soon as they do, I usually just let them crawl onto my hands. I handle them quite often. I am in no way concerned about my health, because I will be fine if stung. I am, however, concerned for their health and stress. What are the levels of thought you all may provide? Thanks a lot.

Marcus,

I think that the best judge of their stress levels is probably you. You have undoubtedly seen your scorpions when they are defensive/jittery, as well as when they are casualy wandering around the enclosure. When you are handling them, what is their attitude? If they seem "calm," then they probably are.

Cheers,
Dave
