It's All In The Jeans

Japanese woman finds scorpion in jeans
A Japanese woman trying on a pair of jeans in a shop got a shock when she was stung by a scorpion hidden inside. The woman, on the southern island of Okinawa, ended up in hospital for five days as a result of the sting, which was not life-threatening. Local health officials captured the 5cm (2 inch) scorpion, which was believed to be a Chinese bark scorpion. It is thought to have travelled inside the jeans from China, where they were made.
