One of the largest scorpions in the world, the Giant Emperor Scorpion is native to the rainforests and savannas of West Africa. Surprisingly, they have an almost harmless sting nonlethal to humans, and are known for their docile behavior. As a result, they have become a popular scorpion in the pet trade, which has led to over-collecting in the wild and their status as an endangered species.
