Thai Woman Sets New Scorpion Record

Thailand's Scorpion Queen, 39-year-old Kanchana Kaetkaew, has set a new world record - by holding a poisonous scorpion in her mouth for just over two minutes.

Kaetkaew completed the record in Pattaya, Thailand and was handed the arachnid by her husband - who, coincidentally, is known as the Centipede King.

She has gone on to begin her second world record attempt: entering a glass compound where she hopes to stay for 33 days and nights along with 5,000 scorpions. That would be one day longer than the current record which she set in 2002. Link
