I was sold these two as emperor scorpions. They do have the dark red tails and seem to look like them, but it was suggested they could be asian forest scorpions. Here are some photos





The first two are my female. The last is my male. Sorry if the photo quality is bad; I only have a camera phone. But hopefully you guys can help! †clown

No, definitely not an emp.

Either a Heterometrus laoticus or a Heterometrus petersii. If you can get a clear shot of the carapace I can tell you which one.

Haha, yep. It's a good place to get some knowledge for a novice that got some powerful little dudes. However, mine are pretty docile. They will show you when they're done being toyed with Razz

Your best guess at which type they are? I can try to get better photos today.

Heterometrus spp. If these were wild-caught imports then chances are your female is pregnant Very Happy

I would need a clear and fairly close up pic specifically of the carapace (head) to be sure. I need to be able to see the granulation (or lack of) on the carapace.

I am not sure if they were wild caught! My female is plump, but I'll make sure to keep an eye on her size. Any other things I should see from a possibly expecting mother? In a way the probability of her being gravid makes me excited. Little scorplings are very cute.

Alright! I will try to get a better picture, but keep in mind that it's only a camera phone. *Unless* I can borrow my girlfriend's mom's really good camera.
Either way I will try my best!

Looks to be a Heterometrus laoticus as I don't see any carapace granulation.
