Keep an eye on the trail if you hiking like we were in rubber sandals (flip-flops). On the Gong Gheo Hike which we did in the afternoon after a rain shower came through the area we were walking along watch the trail and the leaves for leeches as the area was infested with them. I had gotten a little ahead of my companions so I stopped in the trail to look around for them but they came right around the corner. Then Pla (My Friend) calls out "Hey! There's a scorpion"! I said "Where" as I looked down to my right scanning the foliage for it! I didn't see it and then Pla said "On the other side" Sure enough there it was about two feet from my unprotected left foot! LOL It was so cool to see a scorpion like this. I had never seen a scorpion before. It was green and big! Since it was the first Scorpion I'd ever seen I had to take about 20 photos with the digital camera. Then we let him on his way but we made him promise not to sting us! My friend that lives in Thailand said he had never seen a Green one or one that was that big before! He was big enough to eat! After that my eyes where big looking for any kind of creepy crawlers that were going to come out of the undergrowth!!
It was very interesting to watch this guy as he didn't really like us. He would look up and swing his claws around and then walk more and do the same thing all over again. He would also raise up his stinger in a menacing way too!
