A scorpion in my bath (Pseudolychas ochraceus) Buthidae

Just last night when I got back I was thinking that today I must go and buy a UV light so that I can go out scorpion hunting, when lo and behold, I go to run my bath this morning, and here is this little fellow in it. His body length, excluding tail and pinchers is, about 1 1/2 inches. I am sure if I look hard enough, I will find big brother out there somewhere.
