We've been doing some gardening lately and came across this little fellow. I'm afraid the pictures aren't great (my old iPhone isn't the best for close ups!)
He (or she) is Liocheles australasiae AKA the Malaysian tiny brown scorpion, not very dangerous but the sting can cause intense local pain for up to an hour!
Odd thing was that he (or she) kept going towards me when ever I tried to take a photo, most beasties usually try to get away as fast as possible. I guess scorpions are just more badass!
