Great Big Scorpion

Deathstalker (Leiurus quinquestriatus)
I'm really excited about Hattalahutta's new amigurumi pattern Great Big Scorpion for sale on Ravelry here and Etsy here.  I've decided to make mine a "Deathstalker" scorpion like her's except in this color variation.  I've looked at a lot of pictures of different scorpion species and I keep coming back to this one.  I like the blue segment on the tail!  After I pay bills, clean the fish tank, turn in my timesheet for work, and buy some more yarn, I'm on it!  I've been learning a lot about scorpions while looking at pictures.  The venom from this scorpion could aid in treating brain tumors.  But talk to your doctor or pharmacist before getting stung by this guy!  The venom is extremely dangerous!  Have a safe and Happy New Year!
