In Greek legend Orion the Hunter was the son of Neptune. He was a giant who could wade through the seas with his head above the waters. Nature conservation was not his strong point and he threatened to kill all animals on Earth. To save the animals, Gaia, the Earth goddess sent a scorpion to kill Orion.
