NOT FOR EVERYONE
John cautions owners of extreme pets like the Oranje Morph that “safety first” should be foremost when dealing with these creatures. Do not expect them to be like “regular” pets, as such an attitude can only lead to disaster. Never forget, “…all scorpions have venom. It may be cute and hairy like a toy but you can’t pet them; they won’t greet you when you come home from work or purr; you can’t put them in your lap. Its main purpose is for display only.” In other words, caring for these creatures takes a level of commitment in which one does not expect the typical rewards of pet ownership; should you want such a response from a pet, you are better off not even considering scorpions in general in the first place.
