Hey, I don't think you got a spinifer there. The telson is black, and there are some granulations on the chela. I think you have a H. petersii.

Of course I could be wrong. But I'd double check if I were you. But anyways, nice scorps! Does your Scorpio maurus have good burrowing substrate?

I found a good caresheet for this species, very in-depth.

Nice! Well, it may not be the spinifers you wanted, but you got two breeding pairs so it's all good!

You DARE beat me to correcting the ID of a Heterometrus?!? whip

Good catch there Patcho, and yes, it's 100% H. Petersii. Wink
