I never thought myself as a scorpion person until the time a friend suggested that I try one as a pet! Before this trial, I had never kept a scorpion before. I also had a natural fear of scorpions (deep inside I still do). I learned to enjoy the rare beauty of the scorpion in my house. The Banded Flat Rock Scorpion is a very finicky eater- I did not have to worry about feeding him for a period of even three weeks. The scorpion is a rather friendly scorpion but I still fear touching him. In fact, I do not recommend anyone to handle the scorpion with bare hands. Instead, I use groves when I am picking him although my friend tells me that the scorpions venom is not deathly! Overall, I love this scorpion and I endorse it as the most friendly scorpion for a newbie (even those that fear scorpions like me).
