ASIAN FOREST SCORPION IN RESIN - HETEROMETRUS SPINIFER

THE SCIENCE:

The giant forest scorpion, Heterometrus spinifer, is a species in the family Scorpionidae found in Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and other countries throughout Southeast Asia. Members of H. spinifer can reach lengths between 4 and 4.8 inches. Their exoskeletons are of a glossy black coloration, and sometimes iridesce gray-green when under direct light. It’s a very aggressive species of scorpion, with highly-developed pincers and potent venom that can cause severe pain, impaired vision, and numbness in adult humans (but isn’t fatal).

THE STORY:

This specimen lies preserved in a fitting block of transparent Lucite resin; it makes for a lovely little “knick-knack” display piece. Own one today!

    I loved the scorpion I ordered. It shipped quickly and arrived in almost perfect condition. The resin was a little scratched up but it was alright. I do look forward to ordering again in the future!
