What size are we talking?I only use the forceps with small scorps (Centruroides sp., Lychas, Uroctonus, etc.), to move my large scorps I just scoop them into a deli cup. The weight of larger scorps may also damage the metasoma if they are "tailed", so be careful.
I'm talking mostly about Pandinus sp. and Heterometrus sp., or any other species that have a lot of girth and a small weak metasoma.What size are we talking?
I have always tailed scorps upwards to Leiurus, Androctonus, Parabuthus, etc. No, noticable damage and once I grasp the metasoma I give the forceps a tiny minute twist clockwise or counterclockwise depending which side I grasp the tail from to keep the scorpion's body extended and suspended. The forceps themselves grasping the anterior and posterior simultaneously. Like, you see many professionals do.
That could work for extra grip.can you just wrap a small rubber ballon around each tip? or is that just stupid?.
