Scary Big Scorpion

Well, admittedly it’s pretty well dead, but it was the wrong thing to read about just before heading towards bed and a happy sleep.

So if anyone needs anything to have nightmares about … here you go.

No, don’t thank me. :slight_smile:
Bah. An hour ago I thought a little tiny kitchen beetle was the worst thing of the day. :smiley:

Of even more use for nightmare generating is the casual mention that there is still a scorpion running around somewhere that is a foot long. :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s just a big lobster. Sort of.

It’s a good job you’re from the kingdom of butter mangetout, because for a lobster that size, you’re gonna need all of it!

In Soviet Paleozoic, 8 foot scary lobster boils YOU!

Freakin’ AWESOME. Thanks for the link!

This is the upside of global warming, you know. Hotter weather = bigger animals. Too bad I won’t be around anymore by the time our new megafauna overlords evolve.

We’re going to need a bigger boot.

I, for one, welcome our new giant scorpion ov… oh, you know.

Wait, are you saying the Scorpions are coming back?!

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane…

Ohhh, just like Clash of the Titans! Where is Harry Hamlin when you need him?

Hmmm, I don’t think I would even like a lobster wandering around the house. :frowning:

Still, brave today - just got rid of a tiny wee beetle thing. That’s about as much fauna as I want to cope with, ta. Perhaps I need a pet lizard, or a cat.

All scorpions everywhere should die and become fossils.

All scorpions should be dead 390 million years.
