I believe there keels are different and crassicauda is typically a brownish color.

The difference is in their metasoma and chela. A.bicolor have thin chela and A.crassicauda have bulbous chela.

A.bicolor metasoma http://www.ub.ntnu.no/scorpion-files/a_bicolor4.jpg and A.crassicauda metasoma http://www.ub.ntnu.no/scorpion-files/a_crassicauda_UAE.jpg . Compare the 3rd and 4th segment plus A.bicolor metasoma looks round.

The tail looks a little thin to me but I'd say A. bicolor by the color of the pinchers.

If that's an Androctonus spp. then you have Androctonus crassicauda. afro

The metasoma alone gives it away that it's not A.bicolor Very Happy.

the scorpion doesnt seem to like to pose for me. every time i get a picture it looks pretty much the same but i figured i would post them anyway along with an update. its been about two and a half weeks since i bought the scorpion and both of us are still alive, so thats always a plus. it seems to be doing well, it hides all day, comes out at night, burrows. one thing i find kind of weird is that it barely goes to the other side of the tank, but i guess thats just it being territorial. i seen it hunt and eat a cricket last week and it was one of the coolest things ive ever seen. hope these pictures can help out some.

Hi,

Not A.bicolor. I agree with quiz and say that it's an A.crassicauda.


Cheers,
Peter

This possibly a silly question but is something which no-one has brought up.

How do you know its from Israel ?
Just because the shop said so ?
I'm sure that the shops in the US are very much like the shops in the UK and that they usually havent a clue where things come from. They get stock from the wholesaler and take their word about where their stock comes from.

I have very little knowledge on the ID of scorions apart from the more common species but it looks like a Parabuthus transvaalicus to my untutored eyes.
I know that it comes from S africa and also from Tanzania but I also do know that in the UK at least, shipments from Tanzania and Egypt are available at the same time from the same wholesalers.
Maybe a mix-up at the wholesaler ?

Let the debate begin Very Happy

or if i need slapping down ..... be gentle Laughing

I would guess Hottentotta judaicus or Androctonus mauritanicus, most likely a H.judaicus because of the metasoma and the color of the pedipalps Smile

Its my opinion tough Razz

ive been pretty busy lately so i havent been able to really get on this site. anyway the scorpion is still alive and well. i have a couple pictures that i can try and upload when i get the chance. i was thinking of either buying the same species from the same shop or maybe buying a different kind, it was a small red one and i think the lid said like "red bark scorpion" or something along those lines. it seemed pretty calm and not aggressive or active at all

yeah that does look pretty similar. the guy was saying that it was a desert species though..but he even admitted he didnt know too much about scorpions and the guy that did wasnt working that day.
