Isometroides vescus

My youngest son is away on his first high school camp. In the meantime this is one of a couple of beauties to arrive and take up residence in his room. Spider hunting scorpion (Isometroides vescus). Now this one's packing a telson.
Where on earth do you come by these? Ive looked everywhere in the past
There are a couple of people around who have listed them, and salt lakes, recently. I could check if they still have any available. I'm starting to wonder whether I should have grabbed a second for my youngest. They do have a beautiful orange tint (I believe there is also another geographic colour variation).

No worries. My Buchari communal gives me alot of fun and they look fairly similar so i might just be content with them for now, but that may well change soon
 
This is the Australian species that specializes in hunting trapdoor spiders? I am amazed at the huge size of its telson and aculeus pretty much merged into one structure! I've heard the tail is almost prehensile in the way it moves. Just wow!
 
It is a beauty. Lucky they don't mind crickets. It's not going anywhere near my idiopids.
