Comments: The Giant Arabian Deathstalker Scorpion, Apistobuthus pterygocerus, from Saudi Arabia is a highly poisonous & dangerous species. Arthropoda, Arachnida, Scorpionida, Buthidae. There are several scorpion families, but it is the Buthidae that contains most of the world's very dangerous species, especially scorpions in the genera Buthus, Parabuthus, Mesobuthus, Apistobuthus, Buthacus, Leiurus, Tityus, Hottentotta, Androctonus, Centruroides. Among biologists, these bad news scorpions are referred to collectively as the buthids. These highly venomous scorpions generally have long, slender hands (pedipalps), especially the fingers, indicating that they chiefly use venom to subdue their prey, while, by contrast, those scorpions in other groups that lack dangerous poisons generally have large, thick & powerful hands, indicating that they subdue prey simply by grabbing them.
