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.

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

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.
