A Malaysian woman has broken the world record for the longest time spent in a box full of scorpions.

Nur Malena Hassan, called the country's "scorpion queen", has now spent 32 days in a box in Kuantan.

The record of 31 days was created by a woman from Thailand in 2002. She had spent a month with 3,000 scorpions.

Nur Malena Hassan hopes to stay with 6.060 scorpions until next Saturday, says the Malaysian Star.
