Woah! Those scorpions are intense. I used to live in the southwestern U.S., and I often heard tales of people finding scorpions in their shoes when they went to put them on in the morning, but I never saw one myself. The only scorpion I ever saw was a dead one on the road at Pulau Ubin (http://cbsingapore.blogspot.com/2009/09/pulau-ubin.html). Even though it was dead, it was still pretty neat.
Thanks for the comment! Looks like the dead scorpion you saw is the same species as the specimen I photographed! It's quite rarely seen compared to another species, which is apparently quite commonly spotted in the Central Catchment Area and Admiralty Park. Here's some recent sightings of a different species of scorpion:http://sgmacro.blogspot.com/2010/05/secret-garden-tarantula-and-scorpion.htmlhttp://sgn090608.blogspot.com/2009/11/lower-peirce-life-on-handrails.htmlhttp://sgn090608.blogspot.com/2009/12/091212-upper-seletar-mandai-orchid.htmlhttp://sgn090608.blogspot.com/2010/03/100328-venus-drive.html
