Black Scorpion - Asian Forest Scorpion (Heterometrus spinifer) Origin: Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam
Ladybug or Asian Ladybird Beetle (Synonycha grandis) The Ladybug or Asian ladybird beetle is a dull orange color and has anywhere from zero to 19 black spots on its wing covers. They are very effective predators and feed on such landscape and garden pests as aphids, scales and a few other insects. Coccinellidae is a family of beetles, known variously as ladybirds (British English, Australian English, South African English), ladybugs (North American English) or lady beetles (preferred by some scientists). The family name comes from its type genus, Coccinella. Coccinellids are found worldwide, with over 5,000 species described, more than 450 native to North America alone. Coccinellids are small insects, ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm
(0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, head and antennae. A very large number of species are mostly or entirely black, gray, or brown, however, and may be difficult for non-entomologists to recognize as coccinellids (and, conversely, there are many small beetles that are easily mistaken as such, like tortoise beetles).
They are generally considered useful insects as many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places. Some people consider seeing them or having them land on one's body to be a sign of good luck to come, and that killing them presages bad luck. A few species are pests in North America and Europe.

Tarantula or Chinese Bird Spider (H. huwenum) The Tarantula (Chinese Bird Spider) is an English name given to several species of old-world tarantulas which are found in the People's Republic of China and Vietnam. The Chinese Bird Spider is a fairly large specimen, with a typical legspan of up to 8" (20 cm). It thrives in the tropical rain forests of southern China and Vietnam, where it builds and lives in burrows up to several feet deep, emerging to capture food. The Tarantula (bird spider) preys on numerous small insects and other creatures, such as cockroaches, crickets, and mice. The Tarantula is a rather aggressive species, one that will not hesitate to bite humans if disturbed. Its venom is the subject of much toxicology research, and while the effects of this spider's bite on man is not well-documented, it is frequently lethal in small doses to laboratory animals such as mice and rats. As a result, it is generally regarded as a highly venomous specimen.The venom itself is a rather complex neurotoxin, containing numerous compounds capable of blocking neurotransmitters.
