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).

    Great addition to our collection

    Posted by Kristy Clark on Dec 27th 2022

    Our son started collecting framed insects when he was ten so every year we give him an addition. He has a beetle, butterfly and moth and now a beautiful scorpion. The scorpion was a perfect addition!

    The specimen that I ordered came well packaged and in good time. It was as pictured, with clean framing and without change of the specime's color or detail. High recommendation for this company
