Acquired: Pet store

The name with these guys is not just meant to sound cheesily cool, nor is it meant to scare off the unknowledgeable. It is in fact a legitimate warning as these scorpions have a very potent venom that is also lethal in small doses. So essentially, you could very well be signing your morticians records every time you go into its habitat.
I can honestly say that I do not in any way recommend the ownership of these scorpions. The anti venom is harder to come by and it is also likely illegal to own these scorpions. As a result I would also like to remind you that should there be strict sanctions against these animals in your state or province, you are likely going to take a trip to the judge assuming you survive your trip you the ER.
In reality that is all i really have to say on this topic. You can look into their behavior in care videos, and I would sooner recommend that than actually owning one. There is frankly nothing as unsettling as realizing that it has escaped, and any step could be your last.
