Scientists battle brain tumors with scorpion venom – From: wmbfnews.com
AJ the Scorpion Guru was telling me about this the other day and I didn’t believe him. In fact, he said that someone had called to find out the going price for a gallon of scorpion venom. I laughed until he explained that medical facilities are purchasing scorpion venom.
“So you are telling me I should be keeping my scorpions? and not killing them?”
“No,” AJ replied, “unfortunately Arizona Bark Scorpions do not carry the venom they are looking for.”
I guess he really is the Scorpion Guru!
Thanks AJ, too bad you didn’t beat NBC to the punch…
