Black Legged Burrowing Scorpion

Recently our head chef Louise Gillet found one of these beauitiful creatures near her home. On doing some research, she found out that it is a Black-legged Burrowing Scorpion (Opistophthalmus fuscipes). These scorpions are found only in the endangered vegetation types of Renosterveld, Sand Plain Fynbos and Strandveld in the Western Cape, which makes this little creature quite a rare sighting. Well done Louise!
