    Have not bought any dead stuff for a couple months but I bought this one because it came in a vintage box. Looks like 1950s or whenever it costs 9 cents to ship a box like that.
    I see a lot of those big black Emperor Scorpions which are much larger but not so many of these ordinary but still large scorpions from the American Southwest. This one measures 4 inches as it sits from the curve of the tail to claw tip. The body is an inch and half long so it isn't exactly small. Not sure how strong the venom is but I know the Emperor Scorpion is the same as a bee sting. Good chance this one is stronger but probably not deadly.
    Noting the box is to Mrs. John A Stragnaro which is a bit old school. Just like charging 9 cents to send a package.

      Nice Pandinus imperator. It's cool that they fluoresce under UV light.

      I remeber waking up on a mexican beach from passing out about 4 in the morning with some buds ... lol These guts were crawling all over us when we woke up .. the little ones aren't to bad when they sting ..but the bigger ones will make you sick ....Aaaaaa Tequila......smiling

      That's a sizable scorpion. He would have a nasty sting. When my mother was a child in Oklahoma, a smaller sized one made her bed ridden for almost a week. He's in good shape, nice find.

      Thank you very much buckethead. I hear if you take a UV light outside here you will see many although smaller.

      Thank you very much MyCountry. I heard from some others who had a similar fate.

      And thank you very much Thomas.

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. I think this one would have had a respectful sting.

      Well, I'm a Scorpio and I have to say - get me out of this parfum box. Yuck! :-)

      I love that it's dead, in a box and far away from here...lol. Still taxidermy of insects allows a close look, when you don't have to run. Thanks for posting.
