    I have a strange question but think everyone would like to see it but I'm wondering if anyone knows of an actual scorpion inside a case for the iPhone 5. Looking for a see through like wax case the put on canes and things. Think it would really be awesome if there were any such case out there. I've searched google but everything I've seen is just a design. Any help will be appreciated, thanks

    Real scorpion, dead of course. Same thing as a custom cane or walking stick. I think it would be cool as hell

    Try this website. I have given people several of their "creatures." They even do custom work.

    I don't think it's practical. A scorpion cast in resin and made into an iPhone case would add significant thickness and weight (by case standards) to the phone. I think it would add a minimum of 1/2 inch, and that would be for a very small scorpion. If I were into scorpions, I'd get an LED scorpion mouse for my Mac and call it good. There is quite the variety to choose from. However, if you really want an iPhone case, I think you'll need to find a company that does custom resin scorpion preservation since there isn't a big market for it.

    I didn't think the OP was looking for a whole case. I figured if he/she wanted something to attach, than see my suggestion.

    See and I was all excited about having a pet scorpion. Can we make that happen?

    Sure. There a couple parks close to my house with scorpions that fluoresce under black lights. I'll take Kev on a late-night scorpion hunt next month and he can bring one back to you. :D

    Wouldn't mind the extra bulk I just think it would be a very unique looking case for a very nice phone. Thanks to the ones that actually gave some good feedback but this thread wasn't meant for opinions but more information. I've already considered the extra bulk it would add but an extra 1/2 inch isn't very much bulk at all

    Not sure if you're referring to me as the one who didn't post good feedback, but I did spend at least ten minutes searching the net for one for you. I couldn't find one. I try to be as helpful as possible and did post some feedback in addition to my opinion that it would be too thick anyway. I said if you still wanted it despite the bulk, there doesn't appear to be any already available, so your best bet is to have one custom made.

    I don't think thickness or weight is in the mind of someone looking for this, just like someone looking for a solid 24k Gold case would care.

    I think it's in their mind, or at least it will be after they actually use it, but some would be willing to live with the drawbacks. The bottom line is that it isn't available and his question has been answered. He'll need to have it custom made.

    You know what would be cool? A case made of some exotic material (non radioactive preferably). I'd have one made of the most exotic, rare, safe metal I could find. Any ideas?

    I'll hunt with you, but I don't think even Napoleon can sweet-talk the TSA into letting me fly one back.
