The mere word “scorpion” is enough to send shivers down most spines—and their painful stings will discourage most people from handling them; alas, for every wise man there is a foolhardy soul…

Cambodia boasts some pretty large specimens, which are less venomous than the smaller ones; nevertheless, it’s a bit easier to handle the ones sold around Siem Reap’s Old Market--in alcohol, or as an edible dry-fried and exotic treat.
