I took my twin 9yr olds boy n girl to just look at reptile expo. I had free VIP so why not. My daughter wanted a scorpion so bad, blew my mind. So for valentine's day she got a dune scorpion. We are doing 10gal clay/sand set up next week. My special child. And of course if you want in my house gotta build yourself.

I didn't want it particularly either. Lol. But if my daughter is fascinated by scorpions and even the red runner roaches we feed it then by all means. Maybe a future biologist of some sort

Red runners are cool, but I don't trust those in my house. You should have her set up a dubia colony.

The world in which we live is an amazing place whether you are talking about the seas, lakes and rivers, the wetlands, grass lands, forests, and mountains or the troposphere that envelops us. All creatures both great and small are worthy of study and wonder.

Most people, when they visit zoos focus on the mammals kept in cages or exhibits, but those who ignore the birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes and invertebrates are missing out. Many people think insects and spiders are repulsive; it is wonderful that your daughter finds scorpions fascinating.

Scorpions are part of the Arachnid class of animals. As such they are related to spiders, mites and ticks. Like their cousins, scorpions have eight legs and two main body segments. Insects, in contrast have six legs and three body segments.

Good for her! I've wanted a scorpion or tarantula for years now. My parents, however, HATE both. They would maybe consider it if I could just catch one for free, but that's not exactly an option here. They basically refuse to let me pay money for something that could "kIlL mE iN uNdEr 30 SeCoNdS" or something like that. Bleh.

I considered catching pseudoscorpions for a while, but I've never even seen one in my life. At this point, I just keep inverts my parents WILL allow like jumping spiders, shrimp, and dubia roaches. I would absolutely LOVE to eventually have a tarantula or scorpion eventually though.
