Scorpion Queen World Record
Scorpion Queen breaks new world record
Thailand's "Scorpion Queen" has broken a new Guinness World record by staying in a glass room with 5,000 deadly scorpions for 33 days and nights.
Kanchana Ketkaew, 39, smiled after emerging from the 12 metre squared room where she ate and slept with the venomous scorpions.She was bitten 13 times on her arms, legs and fingers, but appeared unharmed
"It's very difficult but I tried because I received a lot of support from Thais and foreign tourists in the past 33 days," she said after breaking her 2002 record for living with 3,400 scorpions for 32 days.
Some 200 foreign tourists had flocked to the Pattaya shopping mall to cheer on the self-proclaimed "Scorpion Queen".
"She's very brave because I couldn't do it," British tourist Jean Reed said.
“She was very tearful one day, she was crying, but she looks a lot happier now.”
Inside the tiny room, she had almost everything to entertain herself to live with her insect friends - including television, refrigerator, books and bed. She was allowed to leave the room for a 15-minute toilet break every eight hours.
Ms Ketkaew said she would return to the small glass room again if someone tried to challenge her with new record.
Kanchana Kaetkaew a.k.a. 'Scorpion Queen' of Thailand is currently the Guinness World Records holder for the longest time keeping a live. Thailand's self-proclaimed "Scorpion Queen" sets world record by holding live venomous scorpion in her mouth for 2 minutes.
