i think that the point is that as a white, american, highschool kid, your chances of making it out of africa alive with scorps are very slim. but hey, we all gotta dream right?

and as far as nicaragua is conerned, it is actually in central america. I dont believe i have ever heard of a pandinus sp. in the new world, but if you can cite your source, i would be very interested to see it. i know that there is now a european colony of C. vittatus, so nothing would really suprise me.

Ya gotta have dreams ya'know? Without them all we will have is memories and not the abilities to have new ones that bring us to a moment of happiness. I know it maybe impossible to own one at this point, but I would really like to hope it be possible to own one in the near future.

Arietans what is this small island off the cost of Africa?



The green is where the P. Dictators are located.

Thanks

Here you are: From the top is Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon and the Dem. Rep. of the Congo. The very small country in between is Guinea.


Cameroon is not for first timers and neither is the Congo. Nigeria can be up and down, but as long as you have money you will be fine. Gabon is also okay, but be awake and don't trust anyone (don't be rude, but don't trust anyone). Guinea is also up an down, but probably the easiest of them all.
Keep in mind that if they catch you trying to export caught animals you will have to pay a hefty bribe.
For these countries, go there and get to know some of the people. But people with influence. So you might have to go a few times.
When you eventually get to catch something, ask them to help you into Angola and go home from there.

This is not advice on illegal exportation. None of those governments could care less about the animals, its your money they want. And besides, if it were as easy as what I wrote it here you would've had your P.dictator long ago :)

Another thing, if you think street violence in the US is bad you will get an eye opener of monumental proportions.

Its not like I plan on going any time soon... I am just curious in case ya'know I or anyone else on this forum suddenly have an adventours streak about them.

I do think though, that this whole P. Dictator thing could make a wonderful movie... It would be like.... "The Cave" + "Lords of War" + "Congo" ... More or less rated R... Because my character would have a big nasty sex scene a contract AIDS or something :} :eek: :(

Heh oh yea. Well Shoot, where do we go from here... We still dont know much about these rare scorpions. Does anyone have any information on them, maybe as to how they came to be? Maybe you can cross 2 different scorpions of Pandinius to form one the Dictator? I know the Dictators are much larger, they are basically a forest emperor on roids. (its my assumption, correct me if I am wrong). So could we cross a P. Imp. with a P. Cav. or something?


I guess we should consider the traits as well...

PCav-
Size
Weight
Chelae Size
Metasoma Size
Mesasoma segment size....etc....

if your going to africa you need to buy bulletproof vest first, a bulletproof helmet and a bulletproof knee/elbow padding...

just to make sure that dictators cant shoot bullets at you.
