I have just bought a baby 'Cave Claw' scorpion. I have had a look on the net and the only scorp I can find with that name is Pandinus cavimanus - Red Claw.

Is cave claw an alternative name for red claws?

This is why I hate common names! :wall:

Pandinus cavimanus: aka 'red claw' 'red claw emperor' 'tanzanian red claw' 'african red claw' 'golden emperor' and yes 'cave claw' maybe even more. manus is the latin for hand or claw. so cavi-manus (cave claw/hand) ie. longimanus or long hand/claw.
