Scorpion Nose

gym shoes or trainersConventional wisdom dictates that when staying in rural areas, one ought to shake their shoes (or boots) upside down, and look inside, before placing their foot in.

I have been told that this is to make sure that no animal (for some reason it’s always a scorpion in the admonition) has made a home out of your footwear.  This got me to wondering, do scorpions have no sense of smell?  My feet stink! I wouldn’t even want to live in my shoe! I don’t think I could get a wink of sleep with the stench that’s going on in there.
