Are you sure it just hasn't burrowed under the substrate?

Definitely find out whether Kug is right on it being under the substrate, if not, wait til' nightfall and search the place with a blacklight (check first in all warm locations which may be near electronics, wall outlets, etc. and in dark areas which stay unlit when lights are on). If you are extremely concerned, if it is not in the enclosure, you can drop some crickets on the floor and the scorp, once it gets one or two, will stay put until done eating, which may assist in making it easier to find and faster, considering scorps move a lot more at night. Good luck!


adios,
edw. :D

Their venom is like a 1 on a scale of 5 soo little less than a bee sting.But allergies is a different story.

I'm not sure if that's true but H. Spinifer are supposed to have a venom that can cause bad optical problems to the one who's stung (not a dry sting)...


Anyone can say if that's really true or not? And why?






Hope you find him/her soon without any problem.. :(

From what I understand their venom is relatively weak as far as systemic effects go,but is quite painful...

A bee sting in comparison is minimal.

Some scorp stings cause so much pain for many hours that people require morphine to bring the pain down to a manageable level.

Nice additional pics, John.

I'll just tell you what you already to know to be the ultimate remedy, FIND IT ASAP w/o being stung!!! *lol* Depending on whether the scorpion gives you the worst venom or not, will you or could you, ever have true systematic occurances. Naturally, some scorpion's venom is not made to hinder the mammal's immune system, especially when it is as complex as the human's. This is to include Heterometrus spiniferis, whose venom is designated to effect the insects and other arachnids which are it's usual meal in it's native environment. It can kill small mammals with ease, then again, you must remember that their immune system is nothing in comparison to the human's, whose will fight back rapidly.

adios,
edw. =D

My only adise, find the scorp as rapidly as you can. Make good use of the blacklight effects on the exoskeleton and the scorp's desires to be in a warm environment.

N/P

Many times, Heterometrus spiniferis and longimanus are confused with one another. It takes quite a bit of taxonomical knowledge to differentiate between the species. Most everyone who keeps and sells them will not know the difference between the two.


adios,
edw. :D
