The Longest Duration Living With Scorpions have been achieved by Kanchana Ketkaew (Thailand), who lived in a glass room measuring 12 m² (130 ft²) containing 5,320 scorpions for 33 days and nights at the Royal Garden Plaza, Pattaya, Thailand, from 22 December 2008 to 24 January 2009. Over the 33 days, she was stung thirteen times. This has been recorded as the longest duration living with scorpions.
In 2002, she spent 32 days in a room with 3,400 live scorpions – that world record earned her instant fame. Kanchana just smiled: “If you thought this attempt was intense, my next one will leave you speechless. I can’t reveal any details yet, but I’ve started preparing for the most dangerous and death-defying challenge of my life.”
Kanchana says she has always loved animals, and |has pushed her mental limits to overcome the fear that’s supposedly part of being a woman.
Sharing her soft spot for creepy crawlies is the man she married, Thailand’s Centipede King, Bunthawee Siengwong.
