Got my H. paucidens! Yay! I went to the store expecting an H. troglodytes as they told me it was over the phone. Turns out to be this one instead. Looks female to me, based on the segment lengths. Do you guys agree?

Metasoma segments are a dead giveaway. Males have much longer segments by far.

Yup, definitely female.

Nice specimen by the way.

Thank you, guys! I dubbed her Pancake. Lol. She's pretty awesome. Beautiful temperament, not any attempts to strike, which is awesome for a juvenile of any species. She's just faaaast. Didn't expect one of the longest scorpion species to be quite that fast. Her banding had the most green out of any of the specimens in the shop, too.

And yep. Collection is getting great. I just need one more small desert species to fill my last unit in the enclosure. Then I'm gonna stop collecting until I move to a place where I have more room. I'm thinking H. tamulus if I can find one...

Man, I wanted a paucidens, but after my most recent order, I have all the space reserved on my shelf for my baby scorpions. I've always wanted a male flat rock, they look awesome.

Shredder... Try a different browser or clear your cookies/cache. Have you tried turning it off and back on again? Lol.

Beautiful Specimen. I love flat rocks but man do their little tiny feet hurt on the skin since they're adapted to climb rock.

I haven't had too many issues with that. She's still small, though. The only issues I've really had is her speed. She's one of the fastest specimens I have.
