I had just been collecting a couple from the wild and i brought them house and left them in a open container in my room, came back in a couple of minutes and one was gone. I had a brief look for it but couldnt find it so i didnt bother much further. At about 11 i went to bed and layed there tossing and turning for a few minutes, i rolled over one more times and felt something hard under my leg then a stinging pain. jumped up, turned the light on and the it was, sitting in my bed. I put him back where he should have been then had a look at the sting area which was just slightly red with no pain, so i went back to bed. I woke up the next morning with a huge ugly red rash up the left side of my body which was not itchy or anything. The rash went away within a week. strange :?
unfortunatly the scorpion died after a couple of days.
