Conservation and life in Borneo

A Good Week for Scorpions

There have been a lot of scorpions seen round about this week. Perhaps it’s the weather? I have no idea. The individuals I have seen all appear to be Asian forest scorpions of some kind, belonging to the genus Heterometrus, probably Heterometrus laoticus. As you can see from the photo below, these are not exactly the kind of things one would wish to find hiding in one’s underpants. Don’t worry, it came to no harm; I released it back into the forest minutes after taking the photo.Image 

Tastes like chicken.
