Hi everyone, first time i'v managed to get a look at the underside of my scorpion since i bought it two weeks back. Any idea whether it's a male or female?

Possibly male, but I am really having a hard time with that picture. However if it's an adult it should be pretty obvious from looking at the chelae (claws), males have a very distinctive indentation that females don't possess.

Also, the correct name for this species is now†Pandinoides cavimanus.

A couple of images to maybe shed some light? extreme close up of the underside of the scorpion and the scorpion under the UV light with chalea clearly visible.

Is this the same scorpion pictured in your intro thread? If so, it looks to be a male as the chelae have the convex 'dip'. Females don't have this.
