I am currently quite impressed with the size of my female Centruroides bicolor and wondering whether any other of the Centruroides genus or other bark scorpions were even bigger than her?

What would be the top 5 bark scorpions in terms of size?

Thanks Wink

Although not a Centruroides species, Babycurus gigas gets pretty large, but I don't know if they go into 7+ instar, or if they get the same length as C. bicolor. C. bicolor is the longest bark scorpion I've heard of. I'm not so sure about other Centruroides species. I bet once you compile a list of the largest Centruroides, everyone is gonna want to buy them. People just love huge scorpions, haha.

Centruroides bicolor is the largest centruroides i know of but whether or not it's the largest is going to be open for discussion...I'd also say that Rhopalurus junceus is probably about the same size as Babycurus gigas.
I wouldn't class Grosphus ankarana as a bark scorpion although many do...If you accepted it's bark scorpion status then i guess these could well hold the position of largest bark scorpion.
