PostSubject: Iomachus politus   6/11/2008, 2:43 pm

After getting a close look last night...we had a good look tonight when rehoming the little one.
Body is black while the legs are brown. Didnt get agressive with us and even was nudged by mistake and just moved sideways! sweet! ok not what i wanted and the shop clearly didnt know that it wasnt a scorpling! Im gonna keep the little guy. I will give them a piece of my mind tomorrow on the phone! we thought we had broken the code for a long claw being a longimanus...well turns out they meant this instead!
From looking online...would indicate that this little one is infact male!

So...what do you think.Iomachus Politus?

it moves sideways and has a black telson. Its an adult because the scorplings have white telsons *seen pics online*. also...body black and legs brown..dont know an Het like that in my travels

I am pretty sure Iomachus Politus...but that could change with another ID

ALSO!<--this is an edit...it rests upside down on the cork bark. The way it is in the picture is just the bark being turned upside down! So it doesnt rest under the hide flat on the floor, but flat on its ceiling!

I just had a look at what you thought....im not sure. Im still leaving towards Iomachus Politus.
Not to worry, I just need to get some climbing "toys" for the little guy when I get paid. Also read on AB that I need to keep humidity up and in doing so, the little one will be more active...not that I mind. Im not one to need a show

well, i think its a not bad buy since I was after a longimanus! shame on me for not looking correctly! Ive learnt from this mistake. I was going to return the little one...but knowing how dumb the shop can be, he is better off with me!
Mummy will look after him. Mummy will get him some more fun things to climb. Looks empty with two small pieces of cork bark!...must get a small teeny water bowl!

Only thing...question of feeding...small cricket will be ok? I dont fancy using anything smaller then a small cricket!

I think you've hit the nail on the head, Connie. And I don't know how your shop can be so dumb.

Defirnatly Hemiscorpiidae not Scorpionidae so it should be easier to id. I.pol is a good guess but how about Opisthacanthus sp.? Maybe Opisthacanthus capensis

Had a look at what you suggested Eddy.
I dont know to be honest.
*head spins*

And when I said "I dont fancy feeding anything smaller then a small cricket"
I basically mean "I dont like the idea of"
Sorry....silly words I use sometimes!

Would you like me to ask Kari Mcwest? I think we pretty much narrowed down the family it belongs to and they're arent that many genuses in that family and we can scratch out Licholes and Hadogenes.

This one didnt even budge but nothing can be as fast as a Pandinus baby running! talk about WOOSH!

I have one flat cork bark hide and one up against the side of the tank. Will buy some more things to climb when I have more mooolaaaah

But for now the little one is quite happy

i was looking it up on google and this is what i came across for you
Iomachus politus
Common names:
Some suplliers in US use the name Tanzanian Long-Claw Scorpion
Venom:
No data have been found, but this species is as harmless, as the other genera of the Ischnuridae. It is not aggressive, and do not attempt to sting when provoked.

sound to me like you get yourself an Iomachus Politus to me
