You are not going to cuddle and pet a scorpion. It is recommended to handle a scorpion as little as possible. A scorpion will not do tricks or beg for its dinner. A scorpion may not even seem to particularly care whether you live or die. And all pet scorpions do have stings. You can't find a de-stinged scorpion - well, not a living one, anyway. If you are allergic to bee stings, they you should think about adopting another pet.

But people who care for pet scorpions think they are good pets, not for what the scorpion gives to them, but for what they can give to the scorpion. Caring for any living creature is not only a great responsibility, when you can do it, your self-esteem goes through the roof. To see a healthy animal exhibiting normal fearless behavior in your home and knowing you are its caretaker is a reward in and of itself.

And scorpions don't talk back. They do not complain. They are relatively hardy creatures. They are beautiful to watch. They don't need to be walked, and are easy to clean up after. They are very undemanding pets and live for about 6-8 years, long enough for you two to get to know each other. In my lifetime, I have only met one person who got their pet stuffed after it died. That pet was an Emperor scorpion!

I am deathly allergic to bee stings and shellfish. But I have many scorpions. Do I hold them? As little as possible, A scorpion is very unpredictable, you never know if they are happy to see you or if they are just waiting for an opportunity to sting.Besides, I think that holding scorpions causes them undue stress. And stress will kill the scorpion very fast. Why kill your scorpion?
