    The only in chandler are poisonous and can really mess a dog up if not kill itIf I remember right the bigger the scorpion the less toxic the venom. but could be other way around. Let me see if I can find out.

    Small pincers and a thick tail indicate that this scorpion is highly venomous
    A medium sized tail and medium sized pincers indicate that this scorpion is mildly venomous

    Large pincers and a thick tail indicate that these scorpions are only weakly venomous.

    so the more the tail outweighs the pincers the more poison. did it say if there are any non-venomous ?

    not really but from what I read the weakly type ones are something like a mosiquito or deer fly bite. Not normally life threatening.

    so what you really want is a mutant type scorpion with 8 inch claws/pinchers. and a barely visible tail.
