Spent a few days near Bethulie in the Eastern Cape of South Africa and off course had some time to see what I could dig up scorpion wise. It was pretty cold but I did manage to find a few species and other critters as well.

Some pics of the general habitat:

Their habitat:

The Hadogenes hide between the cracks of the rocks while the Opistophthalmus make burrows like these underneath rocks:

P.planicauda is one of the smaller Parabuthus species but this female was huge in comparison to the others:
