So which one should I use? I'm not sure if any of these were taken in U. mordax territory, but they're from the same general vicinity.

Everything has been scaled down for ease of viewing and cropped to roughly the dimensions I would use as a tank background. I left the poll as multiple choice if you can't decide.

Pic 9:

Unfortunately, I didn't take any of those. Sad But, they're all from the Pacific Northwest, which is where I live and where U. mordax lives.

I should have put another option "take a photo yourself the next time you go scorping."

Edit: I just discovered that pic #8 is a waterfall less than 1000 feet from where I caught my first U. mordax! Razz No wonder it looked familiar! One of the scorps caught there is in the tank in question, too.

Here's a pic of that same waterfall that Lori took while we were there in May / June:

So it looks like of those, only 1, 4, and 5 have gotten votes (I know it's only been seven hours, but I'm impatient Razz).

Those three are also ones where the original images were large enough to do either a "back of the tank only" background or a "wraparound" background covering up to three sides.

Here they are in the actual image sizes I would use. Thoughts?

Pic 1, back only
Pic 1, wraparound

Pic 4, back only
Pic 4, wraparound

Pic 5, back only
Pic 5, wraparound

I still like 8 if only because I know it's actually in the range of this species.
