Vietnam

In Thai, scorpions are known as maengpong. Having eight legs, they officially belong to the invertebrate category of maeng. The one in the picture on the left was spotted in a forest in Cu Chi, Vietnam.

 

Sri Lanka

However, scorpions are sometimes erratically called malaengpong, thus placing them unjustly in the category of malaeng. The one in the photo on the right was spotted in a garden in Sri Lanka.
