Murziukas said:the question is equal to following one: can children (age group from 10 to 16 years) play with firearms? Basicly - NOT. Responsability is a thing to consider, not the age or experience in scorpions. Eventhrough I think there is no big need to have L. Quinquestriatus in the very begining. It's better to start with babycurus, centruroides and hottentota if you want something more exiting than p. imperator or h. arizonensis.
Well that's one mad comment! First I don't believe your nonchalance in this and secondly IF he gets seriously harmed or even killed by the scorpion it's certainly not gonna do the hobby any good, whereever he's from.ScorpDude said:If he wants to die then why not?
A sting would be fairly inevitable.

It is actually a species recommended for beginner, intermediate and expert keepers, mate. Not just beginners .Murziukas said:It is not if you keep in mind that it is recomended for beginners
Of course it is and it's one in my wish list, but you know, I already kad L. Quinquestriatus in my collection, so....
I'm sure there are many instances of complete novices successfully keeping dangerous species. But that's not the issue... the issue is maintaining a healthy respect for the critter (even my lowly Emp).Murziukas said:how can anything that is recomended for novice be cool? Like to hell with CZ, Browning, Makarov and Colt, I need Desert Eagle!
Of course it is and I would like to have one, but I guess I'm that "other case".
