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.
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.
