Description


Size: 9~11cm
LD50: 4.25 mg/kg


Parabuthus transvaalicus is a species of venomous scorpion from semi-arid parts of southern Africa. Parabuthus transvaalicus grows to a length of 9~14cm, and is dark brown or black in colour, so it is known as the Black Thick-Tailed scorpion. The species is the largest and only diurnal Buthid in the world.

Parabuthus transvaalicus also known as The Spitting Scorpion, this came from its ability to produce venom with both sting and spray (kurtoxin venom). The first droplet of venom differs from the rest, and is referred to as "pre-venom". This species is able to squirt venom up to one meter away, and venom in the eyes can be very dangerous. Safty glasses is reccomended when dealing with this species.
