This impressive scorpion is considered the worlds largest although some Asian scorpions (Heterometrius, Palamneus) grown in captivity (for eating) are claimed to get larger. Pandinus is the African genus and considered threatened. Although it is listed under CITES http://www.cites.org/ live import is tightly controlled but captive breeding is permitted. While not considered dangerous, larger scorpions are self assured and unlikely to sting. If it does you will never forget the pain.
