How many times does a giant blue scorpion molt in a month? And how many months does it take to grow? Josh
This hardy and attractive scorpion, the Malaysian Forest Scorpion is often confused with the Emperor Scorpion, but is much more aggressive! The Malaysian Forest Scorpions or Asian Forest Scorpion is hardy, quiet, and easy to care for. It is also impressive to look at. But unlike the Emperor Scorpion it is not handleable. It is quite defensive and will readily sting when it feels cornered or in danger.

At a glance these large, shiny black scorpions are often mistaken for the commonly kept Emperor Scorpion. However, the Asian Forest Scorpion is similar to the Emperor Scorpion only in looks and not in behavior. They are very aggressive and unlike the Emperor Scorpion, this species is not as likely to settle down in captivity. It can be distinguished from the Emperor in that it is slightly more elongated and its pedipalps and claws are larger and more elongated.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Emperor Scorpion

Despite it's formidable appearance and large size, the Emperor Scorpion is the ideal starter pet for a scorpion enthusiast! The Emperor Scorpion is one of the most docile of all the scorpions kept in captivity. They are hardy, quiet, and easy to care for. They are impressive to look at and are much more handleable than most of their relatives. An ideal species for a beginner.
The African Emperor Scorpion is probably the most recognizable scorpion species (and possibly the most commonly kept invertebrate in the world). Thousands have been imported from Togo and Ghana. They have flooded the pet trade and have become very popular.

Television shows play on the fierce appearance of this large, black scorpion. They are a large, shiny black scorpion with massive pincers and a thick robust body and tail. Despite their gruesome look, the sting of the Emperor Scorpion is mild, causing only localized pain which disappears after a few minutes.
