THE WILD-MAN'S WILD FRIENDS VIDEO SERIES - EPISODE 23 - STRIPED BARK SCORPION

3년 전

Is anyone else "friends" with scorpions?


The Striped Bark Scorpion (Centruroides vittatus) is the most commonly encountered scorpion in the United States. In fact, it is the only species that @papa-pepper has ever encountered in the wild. It can be found throughout the southern United States and Northern Mexico.

This is one of two scorpions that we recently caught. I was hoping to locate some soon, and as it turns out, the @little-peppers knew of a place where they can be frequently be found. (Aren't kids great?) Did you know that scorpions are arachnids, like spiders are, and they are not insects? Whether you realized that or not, there is more info in the video. Enjoy it!

The information is the video is original but I did have a quick refresher from this source.

We actually have them running all around by me...It is pretty neat seeing them with their babies on their back. They are the reason why I alway double check my boots before putting them on.

Well this was insanely cool,
but take care I still want to see you making a lot of videos in here lol !

·

Dont worry because in my country their a place where they ate a lot of insects. :) They fry it

·
·

I have not tried that yet.

·
·
·

Me too, only frog :)

·
·
·

Perhaps next steem-pocalypse we can eat one.

·
·

Todo bicho que camina va a parar al asador..

·

I will try to be safe, no promises!

·
·

I was freaked out when you touched the sting on the tail and then let it go on the video
I thought it'll probably bite you
but then we also have that thought about bees

once again you freak me out and amaze me with this video
first the snakes and now this
what's next? :D

·

The most dangerous is dating a scorpio.

No I'm not friends with scorpion, I don't like them

·

They'll sting you for saying that.

·

That makes sense, it seems many people don't. Glad that you still checked it out.

I shit you not from the image for the video I thought you ate it lol

Love your videos and knowledge on all of these things keep them coming!

·

Lol, they make your mouth taste like stinging.

·

How much is the card?

Tried a similar one in Kao San Road in Bangkok.

I wouldn´t mess with a live one tho, hahaha looks scary to me. Gutsy!!

Thanks for the read @papa-pepper !!

·

How was it?

·
·

meh. pretty crunchy :D

I prefer their fruit smoothies though and leave the bugs for Timon and Pumbaa

Looks like the type of scorpions they deep fry and sell to tourists in China.

·

In wangfujing if you're in Beijing.

·

Hmmm, that sounds kind of delicious. Have you tried them?

·
·

I have tasted frog before and it taste like chicken. Just make sure to properly wash it.

·
·
·

Frog does taste like chicken! But I think it's annoying to eat because of all the small bones. If it tastes like chicken...I'll just eat chicken ;)

·
·
·
·

Then just eat the bones too :)

·
·

I have tried them. Every time friends come to China I take them there and buy them a stick, but most chicken out so I end up eating all of it. Not bad, but a little boring. They kinda taste like burnt McDonald's fries

I cannot believe you put it in your mouth!!!!
You are crazy man!!!! haha

Made me feel like:

·

Awwww, poor little guy.... (you, not the scorpion, lol!)

·
  ·  3년 전

hahahaha it was really fun

I used to be friends with a scorpion but he was a bit of a prick...

For a second i thought you where going to eat it! lol

kinda scary sir..but good post :)

@papa-pepper Another Crazy and Wild Episode . You had fun with scorpion . Didn't it Bite You? Very Good Episode You are More Interesting than Discovery Channel. Your Knowledge and Love of Nature and Wild is Immense , Keep It Up. It is always a treat to watch your episodes. Just Love them. Upvoted , have a wild Day. :)

·

No, it did not bite me.

Thank you for enjoying the videos.

·

Its called fun. He's enjoying it.

Nature indeed is wonderful and crafty. You have a strong mind dude, holding that mean creature in the palm of your hand. Wish I could do that too

I have to say that I am really not a bit fan of snakes or scorpions, like many people I guess, and for this reason I admire even more your attraction for them and how you manage to handle them the way you do.

They have those here in the south 😱 I've never seen one but I'm sure if I did I'd freak out! Great post 👍🏻

·

They mostly come out at night, pkus they are small so it is easy to not encounter them. I have to try really hard to be able to find them.

Watche this in bed, now I'm not going to bed....

·

Lol, a nomad with a bed.

Amazing little creature. Would love to see the babies on the back. Thanks for all the info. Enjoyed.

·

If I find one with babies I'll take a photo.

This is the closest that I've found, but it's a different kind of arachnid.

·
·

That is so cute! Awesome. Thank you so much. Nature is amazing.

One of this suckers was spotted by my friend in the guest room stand up shower of her 2 yr old home. She freaked ! Very cool vid cool sir - just don't try that mouth trick with a rattler !

Lol, I'll keep the Rattlesnakes out of my mouth.

I live in Costa Rica on a mountain and here we have many skorpions often inside the house. We moved here about 6 months ago and so far I cought about a dozen of them in all sizes from tiny to big. One was on the bed and the big one actually was on my external harddrive, enjoying the heated air. I like them but I need to save them from my wife. ;)

·
·
·

Found the picture:
Skorpion.jpg

·
·
·

Very cool. Great idea photographing it!

It looks way nastier than mine! Sooooo coool!

·

I live in Costa Rica too, and have seen a few scorpions in the house as well. Luckily, not many though. Lot's of them around however!

·
·

Cool, where do you live? I am in Heredia.

Always such good stuff on your channel!

Lovely weekend to you and your family :)

·

Thank you! Glad that you liked it!

I'm happy that I've never seen in real life, scorpions sacred me, so do snakes.

·

I was happy to finally see some in real life, lol. Interesting, isn't that?

·
·

That's because you're the wild friend of wild animals and I just wanna run free with alpacas! Hopefully one day!

·
·
·
·
·

I remember few years while Im setting at the threshold of our room when a red snake crawl over my lap. If I didnt stand up, I wouldn't know that its on my lap, it fell on the floor. I was not able to move, I just pointed my finger towards the snake and said snake! snake! snake!

Throw me anything not snake, I can't take it :)

You're definitely a wild dude with wild friends! I love it.

·

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the show!

  ·  3년 전

good job

Aww you are so brave to take them in hand and playing. I am scaring if i see scropio or spider because i know that they are so dangerous and we may die bu bite them. I also seen on discovery that one person eat it and enjoying by it. That's really great adventure for you but i will scary

This is interesting. I am so scared of scorpions but i watched it. :-) lol.

Crazy video Looks you are in love with scorpion

wow thats a cool scorp. i remember i had an emperor scorpion years ago.. they make cool pets, and pretty easy too. :)

Arghhhh...the site of it terrifies me

Wow, that's actually cute little guy. Not scared of little scorpions but, for some or other reason, don't like big ones 😳

Truly wild! Holding a scorpion in your hand! Ignoring the danger to take a video for us. (Taking your eyes away from the scorpion!!! ) And thanks for all the information. The "molting" part is very interesting. Thanks and take care, @papa-pepper!

·

Glad you liked it. You guys are worth it!

We need more of this

wow, You are so brave

Just Brave Man!

I heard that only few scorpions are poisonous and I think that one belongs to those whom they referred as not poisonous.

I'm not familiar with scorpions, I just heard it from tv yesterday.

What the! @papa-pepper its scarry and ahahahahaha eeeewweeew.... ahahah you are really incredible... 😇😇

·

Lol, thank you.

Oh no, I have not seen them yet :)

Have you ever been stung by a scorpion?

·

Nope! You?

·
·

Oh no lol. I live in Nova Scotia where scorpions don't exist in the wild. I guess I could've been bit by someone's pet scorpion but no I haven't. I was only asking because you hold them in your hands.

·
·
·

Right, that's a logical question.

·

He knows a lot about these creatures and I believe he also knows which one of them is poisonous.

nice vidoes i gived you a upvote

Wow!!! hanks for that video!

Wow iam so scared, you so brave my friend
Please follow back me i am from Indonesia

Nice one! We only have one scorpion here in Tasmania, the Wood Scorpion. Smaller than the one you have their. Someone who was stung on the back by one told me it was similar to a bee sting.

·

Interesting. They are some crazy creatures.

·

We also have it in my place but a tiny one. Its as size as mosquito.

SCORPIONS!!!

You are pretty damn brave dude. Ever been stung by one?

·

Not yet... still trying...

·
·

Lol! I was sort of surprised she didn't pinch you after you removed her from your hand and placed her on your finger. It looked pretty irritated!

·
·
·

I guess looks can be deceiving.

Hi, guys, Follow me and Upvote my posts in my blog and i will do the same thing!!!

Scorpion😱

My zodiac is scorpion, does That count?

These dangerous,man
Me personally i am afraid of insects
but I love animals

Awesome scorpion, I am a scorpio and have always been into them because of it!

·

Interesting. I'm not sure why I'm into them.

·
·

They are pretty cool. I have never actually encountered real scorpions, so the reality is I like the idea of them. I think a real scorpion in my living room would freak me the F*** out lol

·
·
·

Before I met live wild ones, it was just a good idea! Still is!

I was a scorpion in another life...

You could get bitten ! #upvoteforupvote

I'm kind of blown away all the things you guys have in Arkansas. I didn't realize scorpions live there. Great job @papa-pepper !

·

Thanks, I'm impressed by it too. I did not realize all that prior to moving here.

I'm afraid of scorpions =(

Is it venomous? Can it kill a human? Other animals?

upped and followed :)

Nice work, I would not be brave enough to pick one up. Would be worried I'd get it wrong.

Thanks fro sharing!

okey i am hungry

Amazing friend

It still amazes me how well you can handle scorpions. You hold them in your hand, much less, close to your mouth lol. They are fascinating creatures and ones that I never get tired of. Thanks for sharing :)

Wooo Super

Cool !But be careful, sting is painful and causes swelling.

What a gorgeous creature. I evicted a fairly large black scorpion from a house in Thailand a few months back. Also kicked out an 8 inch long Scolopendra centipede and bird-eating spider aka Thai tarantula. That 'pede was no joke! A tough customer. I have faced down a spitting cobra in Bali and the Scolopendra scared me more LOL. Awesome pics and video.

I love Scorpions!

Hi @papa-pepper Thank you for those really interesting post i want to share with you two of my neighbor friends. I don't know if you know the first one it is a whip scorpion from here in northern Thailand
![IMG_0958.jpg]
()
They live under humid ground at about 2 feet and they are not dangerous
The other friend is a big black scorpion from Thailand little like the other one like to go deep about 1 or 2 feet it is not a deadly one but it can give a big fever for a few days
IMG_0805.jpg
IMG_0811.jpg
IMG_0438.jpg
And let's say for finish today another very good friend to manipulate with precaution as it bite very strong and don't give up for hours but with calm moves and good heart there is no problem to handle him, the gecko.
IMG_0954.jpg
I have many other friends here in north Thailand we have jungle and mountain. I really love your post Thanks you

Have you beem stung by a scorpion?

Ummmm... Noopppeeeee

Scorpions are so cool. Great video definitely worth a follow.
