Palawan scorpion

Occasionally you will see one of these jumbo scorpions crossing the road as you buzz along.

This guy works at the butterfly farm and has no fear about handling one of these beauties but does give the warning “Sir, careful – poisonous!”

All scorpions have some venom but most will only give you a nasty welt. There are a few species that are known to be life threatening but I don’t think this one qualifies.Palawan Scorpion

New pictures from December 2010 – Malay Giant Scorpion

malay giant scorpionThese giant Malay Scorpions are found in Palawan and a few islands around Tawi-Tawi but are not found elsewhere in the Philippines.

Giant ScorpionThese jumbo scorpions are not a danger to hold on your extended palm because they can only  strike aggressors coming from above. They feed primarily on cockroaches and crickets.
