Well I guess I finally got to take some shots of a scorpion…. I’ve been on the prowl for a long time… Enjoy!!!!
I have always been quite scared of scorpions although they are quite common in Mastichari. Their agressive, somewhat repulsive look might be at the source of my phobia. Many people I know have been stung throughout the years and the reactions or consequences differed substantially. A great number actually get stung and don’t feel much. They equate it to a bee sting. For others it is rather more painful as they get an allergic reaction and they have to be taken to the hospital to avoid any complication. My experience has shown that scorpions like to hide in holes, beneath rocks. They are fearful and are rarely caught out in the open. Scorpions hate water and will run off as soon as they get wet that is why most locals throw a lot of water on their balconies in their effort to get rid of them. They are usually yellow although I have come across a few green ones.
