NEVER remove a scorpions stinger.
Yes its possible. Yes I've seen it.
BUT they use their stingers to eat!!! They aren't exactly the smartest animals when it comes to feeding time. In fact you usually end up using tweezers and hold it for them to see. My scorpion takes about a good hour to 2 hours to actually get a hold of his food. And to make things a little more fun, you have to watch them. Unattended crickets left in the cage can, will, and have been known to kill scorpions. This is because the scorpion has VERY soft delicate sides that the crickets will bite into. They look scare but their so delicate.
