Topic hello from qatar!

Post by lilith.strange on Sat May 16, 2015 7:51 pm

my name is lilith, and i work in doha, qatar as a paramedic. i've lived here for nine years now and have been searching the desert for a scorpion... with no luck. until last week when we had a call for a patient who was stung by a scorpion. good thing the friends of the patient did not kill the scorpion but put it in a bottle and handed her over to me... for identification at the hospital. so, after the call i took the scorpion home with me. i call her "handle with care". could someone help me identify what kind she is? thanks.

Hi Lilith,

it's a Hottentotta jayakari. Common in the Arabian Peninsula & southern Iran.
I was stung by a juvenil H.j. in my left thigh whereas feeding my scorpions. He was fallen in my lap.
Symtoms like a wasp sting. It was not as bad as all that - in my case! 
So, be careful.

All the best,
Carlos Very Happy
