A Syrian man breaks the world record for eating scorpions
A Syrian man has broke the world record for eating scorpions.
A man called Hozan has successfully broke the world record after he ate 25 scorpions in 20 seconds, and he has admitted he has always dreamed of gaining the title ever since he was younger.
However, he warned others not to follow in his footsteps because there are very fatal consequences.
He told Rudaw.net: "If someone else eats a scorpion, his blood may clot and he will die. It is too dangerous."
And it is believes his friend Yousif, who has allegedly become immune to the animals sting years ago, helped Hozan to achieve his mission.
He said: "Residents in the camp are really scared of scorpions.
"We have cleared the surrounding areas of the camp, now there are no scorpions around the camp.
"What we want to do is not impossible, we want to make our nation proud by doing that."
