In all of your opinions, what is TRULY the most dangerous Scorpion to keep?

Obviously any Scorpion can have their risks reduced by being careful and such, but, to rephrase my question, what Scorpion in all of the world would you LEAST want to stick your hand in the cage with?

IMO, it is Hemiscorpius lepturus. While is is only reponsible for 12% of stings, it is responsible for 95% of deaths. Luckly, it isn't very common over the Middle East.

the most dangerous is the keeper....

poor scorp... it may get squished after the keeper got stung for pestering that little scorp....
