I'm pretty sure it's an amoreuxi.

don't toy with it, whatever you do, or you could find yourself on hospital or worse.

try to get a few more shots of it, closer up.

I'm going to agree with Scorpion111 on this.

Androctonus amoreuxi. Keep it fairly dry, as all Androctonus spp. hail from northern Africa and the Middle East.

This is one of the less potent of the Androctonus.
But still medically significant.

Based on Eddy's two pics, my vote's still for the Buthid.

Let's stay off the taxonomy tangent here, folks. If you want to discuss the matter start a new thread. Smile
