A SCORPION APPEARED on a building site on Baggot Street in Dublin today.

The unexpected visitor arrived with a delivery of sinks and is suspected to be an unwitting passenger, possibly from Turkey.

The DSPCA received a call from the building site this morning and the scorpion is now in its care.

The DSPCA says it has called in experts to identify the species of the creature, who has been nicknamed JP by the staff there.

There are some 1,750 species of Scorpions, around 25 species have venom capable of killing humans. However, many scorpions can give a painful sting.

JP is a small scorpion measuring just under 4cm in length.
