Scorpions and Venomous Insects of the Southwest


Jul 24, 2002
Scorpions and Venomous Insects of the Southwest By Erik Stoops and Jeffrey Martin


This publication is of limited interest to the scorpiog keeping hobby but has some information as a guide book to the venomous invertebrates of the american southwest. There is actually much more information provided on the Hymenoptera (Bees, Wasps, Ant) than on scorpions. I believe the limited scorpion information will still interest those of us who are hard-core scorpion addicts.

The information provided is fairly basic and is presented as more of a field guide for identification of these invertebrates as they may be found in the wild. There is almost no information on keeping scopions in captivity.

For what this publication is designed to be, it is a good book. However, it's use in the scorpion-keeping hobby is limited at best.
