Scorpions are among the most unusual and instantly recognisable of all animals. They are fun to observe and easy to keep, and there are several species - such as the striped bark scorpion - whose venom has not proven fatal to adult humans. This book details why these creatures make fascinating pets, even if they aren't warm and fuzzy. This new addition to the Herpetocultural Library has all you need to know about selecting and caring for your pet scorpion. Also included is a special section on other familiar invertebrates that are easy to care for in a home vivarium. Dazzle your friends with your knowledge of creepy-crawly millipedes and centipedes as well as the strange-looking mantises, roaches, and stick insects.
