Whilst its always good to interact with birds, animals and people whilst on vacation, some interactions are better than others. This little fellow was having a doze in a shirt that had been left outside on our patio. Unfortunately, he wasn’t found until the shirt was on and he was rudely woken up, at which point he took his revenge on the wearer in the usual way.
Having spent an hour googling various combinations of “… Dominican Republic, scorpians, stings, treatment, symptoms, go to hospital??…” we got precisely nowhere in either identifying the miscreant or in deciding if we should be heading for the nearest medical facility.
Fortunately, my husband has not suffered from foaming at the mouth any more than ususal, so we have assumed all is well…and the scorpion? He remains anonymous.
