If you can’t beat them, eat ‘em.

A 34-year-old Iraqi farmer claims he consumes at least one live scorpion every day.


The Iraqi farmer claims he is addicted to the creatures.

Ismail Jasim Mohammed, who lives in Samarra, said he became tired of getting stung by the dangerous creatures. He decided to turn the tables and do the biting.


He claims to have developed an immunity to their stings.

And after eating scorpions for 15 years, Mohammed tells NBCNews.com that he is now addicted. He says he gets withdrawal symptoms if he goes three days without consuming one.


He turned on the scorpions after getting tired of the stings.

Mohammed says he has been stung so many times in the mouth that he has developed an immunity to the scorpions’ venom.
