Giant scorpions are common in media, but this was inspired by something from my own youth. When I was very young, I had a Mighty Max toy that included a scorpion that was much larger than Max, the human character in the set. Never having seen a scorpion before, I asked about it and was told it was a real animal. As a profoundly dumb kid, I took that literally and thought scorpions were larger than a person in real life. I was very happy to be proven wrong.
