I had a chance to touch one of these critters during high school Rather bizarre. It's like petting a ventilation hose like the type used for exhaust pipes for dryers. Both fascinating and kinda creepy. Though, if I were going to keep any sort of creepy crawlie as a pet, this would be it. Or may the black and yellow millipedes out in the woods here.

This one has 30cm.

You are lucky, small scorpions with large telsons ("tails") can be very dangerous. I know species that their stings can be fatal for humans. Luckily I have only Pandinus imperator in my flat. I'm planning to take its pictures tommorow.

Mam zdjęcie podobnego, tyle że wyschniętego (martwego) owada z Krety. Jak wielkie jest to paskudztwo? :)

Niestety na Krecie takich nie spotkałem. Sierpień to najgorsza pora dla łowcy bezkręgowców. Ten mój (a dokładniej pupilek mojej żony) liczy sobie ok. 30 cm. Fajna sznurówka :D
