very true asergio. it depends upon species as well as individual temperament. in india, no scorpion is known to be dangerously lethal to an adult human being, so i took the risk.

I think it is necessary to have in mind wich species of scorpion you are dealing with. Brazilian relatively small scorpions of Genus Titius are very nervous, and responsible for several accidents per year. I prefer to keep some distance from them... :-)

asergio, i think its safe to keep a scorpion on ur flat palm..or let it go around freely on ur hand. :) i don't think it will sting you if you don't hold it between your fingers. But i would not suggestion anyone to do that though.

Well, that is something I would think twice (or more) before to do.
