Hello, this is a great image. I was wondering if I could use this photograph as a drawing reference please? I would simply use it as a skeleton sketch for anatomy and then draw the developed fictional character using the anatomy and rough pose, with changes.

Aj, thats AWESOME! Who would ever think of having scorpions as pets? And another thing, are the fighting or something?

In addition to my previous comment, if you haven' t already done it, I would recommend reading through the FAQ page:

While we do allow pet submissions, here at PN the focus is really on living organisms in the natural world and in their native environments. I bet there are some very interesting organisms in the Phillipines!
