Biggest scorpion yet

Clive was sitting at his desk minding his own business when he felt something on his arm. He looked down and it was a scorpion!

He hastily brushed it onto the floor and called me.

Bumper-sized scorpion

I was able to photograph it alongside a ruler before it started to move on – those are centimetres at the top.

I intercepted it with a dustpan, and from there it returned to the big outdoors.

It was far and away the biggest scorpion we’ve seen so far.

    Wow – now that is scary – even on a post.

      Yes, Clive got quite a shock, and I could hardly believe my eyes. But there are worse things – hornets, for instance.
