Scientific name: Parabuthus granulatus

The basics:
The Granulated Thick-Tailed Scorpion is native to southern Africa. It inhabits hard packed sandy and gritty soil and burrows at the base of shrubs, grass tufts under logs and stones. Perhaps because it actively forages for prey at night, rather than being an ambush predator, the Granulated Thick-Tailed Scorpion is responsible for more medically serious stings in South Africa than any other scorpion species.

Appearance / health:
Granulated Thick-Tailed Scorpion is dark yellow to brown in color.
