Hey have a cpl of questions, has the wood scorpions always been In Tas or were they imported? As I don't remember them as a kid (80's)? Is it known if anyone that has been stung, has had any similar extreme reaction to that of a bee sting (anaphylactic shock)? Also are cats and dogs vunrable to the same pain as humans? Cheers Dean C
