Hi Sarah, hope you are well and having fun...I was nearly stung by a scorpion in a shop in Agdz, 5 years ago....Best...Uwe

Hi Uwe, I have used a local descriptive name for these as given in Agdz.
I believe however that your spelling is the correct one.
Warm wishes

This is a beautiful version, I have never seen before! But "Talakhimit"? Just a mistake or new Knowledge...? I know them only as "Talhakimt"1? Warmest greetings, Sarah...Uwe
