Are scorpions dangerous?

While getting stung by a scorpion is generally nonlethal, they are still venomous nonetheless. Common symptoms of a scorpion sting include pain, numbness, and localized swelling. In serious cases, people may experience difficulty breathing and vomiting along with other severe reactions.
