What can a sting do to me?

Does size affect sting?
Like most people say, the smaller ones have a worse sting. That’s not true at all. What it really is is that the smaller Scorpions will put more venom in their sting then they realize. And for adult scorpions, they know how to control their venom dosage amounts. So when people say that a smaller Scorpion sting is worse, it’s actually false. The only reason it would be “worse” is because they can give more venom in a sting.
