Scorpion I.D

Can anyone identify this scorpion for me (I hope the picture shows on here)
It was found in Pringle Bay under a rock. I don't have an accurate description of the size, sorry.
Just in case:
1.2.0 Ball Python
1.1.0 Corn Snake
1.0.0 Honduran Milk Snake
0.0.1 Mexican King Snake

Definitely Opistacanthus capensis. They are like cockroaches down here in the Western Cape.
