Dubai United Arab Emirates:- "Death chaser" is the most expensive liquid in the world, the price of one gallon of it is 39 million dollars (a gallon equals about 3.8 liters), meaning that getting one drop will cost you 130 dollars.

"Death chaser" is the poison of scorpions, and the high price of the liquid is due to the difficulty of obtaining the scorpions themselves, as well as the process of extracting the poison from them, as only one milligram can be obtained from each scorpion.

To collect a gallon of venom, the liquid is extracted from 2.64 million scorpions, according to the "Business Insider" website.

Animal experts say that the sting of a "death chaser" is 100 times more painful than a bee sting, noting that its venom is used in the development of a number of drugs.

Scorpion venom was previously used to fight malaria, and it was tested with mice to treat bone diseases, in the hope that the results would reveal future solutions to dangerous diseases that afflict humans.
