Father shares home with scorpions


A Thai father has adapted his house so that 4,600 scorpions can live with him and his family.

Suang Puangsri has decorated part of his house in Fark Ta in Uttaradit with tree branches and stones so that the creatures feel more comfortable.

He said he has done it to atone for years of breeding scorpions to sell to restaurants.
