i got it from the site you gave.... though venomous they rarely cause death.. and the sting would be compared to a common bee sting.... which also can cause the same symptoms above...

seems like JHOPS is fine and dandy to me lol
man, Ive seen alot of bee and scorpion stings, and scorpion stings always look worse. Ive heard the pain described as somewhat more intense also.

i think there's more than 1 type of bark scorpion, but i'd still say the symptoms listed would classify as "dangerous".

yeah can be dangerous if your not careful and contact a doctor right away the allergic reactions can occur within minutes... and Centruroides is the most common species here in texas. like i said before.... if you guys ever run into one dont kill it... catch it... ill buy them off of you 5$ each im thinking of starting up my collection again...

Yep one got me too, I also live in Magnolia & found one in my bed when the little bastid stung me. It wasn't near as painful as a bee sting but it left a tingling sensation in my arm for a few min. They are pretty much all over out here but I'm more concerned about the black widows & copperheads... Maybe not fatal for a big ol fat dude like me, but bad news for a small kid.
