what would you do if there was a scropian on your arm? because i got out of my sand box because the bogs where diigging out the white stuff well it was my grandma's sandbox and i was walking to the door about to open it and i lift my arm up and guess what..... a scorpian was on it!!! i stayed as calm as i could and flicked it off and ran in side and it was weird because there are usally no scropians where i live.... so what would you do if you had a scorpian on your arm??? oh by the way i was scraed to deth!! x.x
dont think we have them in UK but more than likely do what you did stay calm and try to ease it off my arm ....failing that whip my arm up to get him off with out thinking and get stung

Quote sheltie:i live in TX but where i live we realy don't have scorpians and i wouldn't wack it i would hate to get stung x.x
Quote devastar:ok ill try to rember that rule lol ^^
Exactly what you did.
I've never seen a scorpion and I'm pretty dang sure we don't even have them here, but I would've flicked it off very carefully and calmly to ensure I didn't aggravate it- then ran like the dickens.
... Because I'm such a level-headed person. Yes.
Probably just stare at it and flickit off but catch it after! And name it and stare at it alot.
Quote Fish:lol Fish i wouldn't do that what if it got out and stung you while your sleeping? but i might of stared at it i was to scared to lol
Quote Sappire:i was reaching for the door knob when i saw it on my arm
like some people say never stare a cold blooded animal in the eye.... although i don't think anyone says that..... lol
her name is hope it's a dinosaur
Yikes toss it and run
I have an extreme fear, and I got lucky enough to live in a place where the creepy little demons are everywhere >.< I can't even leave my house at night. I screamed because my sister put a pic of one up on my computer(So when she staid at my house again, she woke up to a giant poster of Darth Vader^^ Not sure why, but she's terrified of him lol) So I would probably scream and pass out.
We used to have a pet scorpion, so I probably wouldn't have done much. I know roughly how to handle them, and I know that the bigger the pincers the less dangerous their sting is, so I would have carefully removed it from my arm and carried on with my day. :3
I would freak out and whack it of my arm. Yes, whack, nothing so dainty as a flick. Lol
There's no scorpions here. Sure, if one brings them over as pets, then yes, but they're not originally from here. So, I don't worry about it. However, if by some misfortune it really did happen, I'd freeze to death and hope the scorpion leaves me alone.
They're not native, true, but are some wild scorpion colonies in the UK. Mostly near dockyards - there are a huge number living in Sheerness Docks, well documented online.
Ooo, yes, I've heard of them. Sounds interesting. A supposed 10,000 of them living in those walls?
