Stunned supermarket workers got more than they bargained for after they peered inside a packet of bananas - and spotted a live SCORPION.

The venomous creature had made it all the way from Costa Rica to the UK by stowing away among a batch of the fruit.

Still got my pet scorpions preserved in a glass of alcohol. Would consider this a bonus!

this is not a real big deal. i guess if you got bitten it would be, but the idea that a scorpion could be there is not at all unusual.

They bite, but their sting is worse.
