  scorpion captured in the Assekrem
by Svillegas

In this zone we saw 3 scorpions, so it's recommendable to sleep inside a tent, the guides didn't because they are used to it, but it is a little impressive to anybody else except them. This "lovely" animals use to stay near the rocks and stones, don't put the tent near.

There are also snakes and other animals, don't worrry very much, if you don't disturb them there's no problem, but be careful where you put your feet and look inside your shoes!!
