It's the sort of thing you'd never imagine could happen in Canada.
A reporter from the Weather Network received an insanely terrifying surprise on Friday.
Nathan Coleman's wife went out to their local Costco for some groceries in Halifax, but when she got home, their daughter noticed that there was something moving in one of the bags.
The bag contained bananas from Guatemala, and since bananas aren't exactly famous for moving being mobile, she decided to investigate.
At first the 11 year-old thought it was slug, but unfortunately she was very wrong.
It was a scorpion.
"She was holding it up and I said 'don't worry it's just a slug,'" (...) "My mother was in the living room too and it was still squirming around in the bag and she said it might be a scorpion. I got up and looked at it and couldn't believe it was a scorpion." Source
Coleman called Costco to get them to remove the product from their shelves. He then brought the scorpion to the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History.
