Just rehoused Bug, my H. paucidens, and after acquiring the emperors the other day and mentioning the possibility of breeding, my wife asked me if this was a boy or girl and if we were going to get another to breed (yes, I know they're non-communal) Can you tell from these shots, or do I need another angle? Yes, that's a dollar coin, little bigger than a quarter at 26mm.

Absolutely, positively, 100% mature male.

Didn't even need the pectines to tell you that Smile

I'm guessing male by the length of the metasoma.

The tail, right? Length and thickness?

Thanks to you both!

Length -- males of this species have long metasomas. Check out my pic in this subforum -- it should be in the stickified index.

The males have extremely elongated tails that are usually just as long if not longer than the scorps body. But if it is a female, like the above pic, then you can see that the tail would not be as long as the body of the scorp if it were to be "stretched out".

^No,* the word is "venomous," and keep the sexing threads on-topic please.

The question is answered, the thread served its purpose -- if the OP is involved I don't really mind, but if it's someone else's thread, off-topic conversations tend to annoy this admin. If you want to discuss an unrelated scorpion topic, post a new thread; if you want to discuss something not scorpion-related at all, check out our community discussions subforum.
