Looks like a Opistophthalmus sp to me... Maybe O. glabrifrons or O. wahlbergii.

Yeah I could no way tell you a definite species, I've had 2 labelled as the same scorps O. glabrifrons. One was light coloured like that one, the other was really dark, near black with lighter legs.

Pretty sure it's Opistophthalmus sp. though.

That is definitely Opistophthalmus karooensis.
Check out my thread here: scorpionforum.darkbb.com/t7937-my-opistophthlamus-karooensis
If I might ask, where did you get these as they arent very available in most countries outside South Africa.

Well it's definitely a Opistophthalmus sp. I'm going to go with shadowfoot's diagnosis and say it's a O. karooensis. Smile

Yeah I think you could be right there, never seen them for sale over here though only the usual glabrifrons/wahlbergii.

General shape of the body, males are much thinner and smaller. Just check the difference in the thread I gave at the top, you can clearly see the difference.

Most of my scorps that burrow close up their hole. In nature this would be a defense against predators, so that their burrow isnt discovered that easily.

I dont know of the chances of getting a female over there in Europe at the moment, probably very little chance though.
I have no idea why he is closing up the burrow entrance, probably juast a scorpion being a scorpion.
