Students from Central Tilba PS working on our Insect Hotel workshop found this scorpion. We would have done some research on the species but we had to get started on building our Insect Hotel, Air Bee and Bee, Bug Hotels

sorry about the delay in identifying this ... I'm pretty confident of the species, and it's one we see in the south of the Atlas region quite often. Nice animals!
