Another lovely day down at the Southern Tip. I moved some braai wood this morning to find this feisty little fellow:
I’ll update the image when I upload it to Flickr. [Note to self – update the image when you upload it to Flickr.] Yeah, yeah – I did this. [really cool Flickr link]
It’s a Opistophthalmus capensis. But of course you knew that already. Nasty, painful sting, (which he was more than ready to use) but not medically important.
So I was fairly safe while talking my photo.
Footnote: We also found a Parabuthus capensis the night before. [phone pic]
(I was a bit more careful with that one.)
