Well it took a year but I now have number two scorpion, however I think the shop have got it wrong, they told me its a striped tail (Hoffmannius spinigerus) scorpion but its claws are tiny and not large like the striped tail.

Can you experts have a look at these initial photos and see what you think, from research last night and please forgive my ignorance of Latin names on this one I think its more likely an arizona bark (Centruroides sculpturatus) not a stripey bark (Centruroides vittatus) scorpion.

Please let me know your thoughts as I want to get the set up spot on as its currently in 100% sand, its dug down overnight a little scrape under that piece of cork bark.

Cheers

Any ideas folks? I have purchased desert floor substrate and mixed it all together but would still like your ideas on what I have here?

Looks like some sort of Vaejovid to me....

As for exactly what it is I couldn't tell you. I'm really not great with the Vajovidae family.

Btw, the genus Hoffmannius has been abolished as of 2013. So H. spinigerus is now Paravaejovis spinigerus. http://www.ntnu.no/ub/scorpion-files/vaejovidae.php
