This webpage was first set up in 1997 when I was totally new to the hobby. It was my intention to contribute to this budding interest in scorpions. It was hosted by the Singnet internet service provider. However, due to long period of extremely busy schedule, it was neglected after August 1998. Since then, I have received over 18000 hits and many requests for links, updates, comments (mostly favourable) etc. from the internet community. I have also received awards for being in Lycos top 5% education website and so on.
However, the high cost of hosting my webpage with Singnet make me decide to 'jump ship' to Tripod. I hope my updated webpage does not disappoint. Many of the older (nicer) pictures are replaced with my own to make this webpage more truly my personal effort. All pictures belong to me unless otherwise stated or indicated.

Javascript is used quite extensively and most pages are frames (sorry for non-frames browser). A total of 22 pages, 19 midi and 90 pictures are included. Much of the page is created by typing the HTML myself...... but alas I succumb to the dumb WYSWIG editors halfway through.

The webpage is organised in this manner:
