Yeah, yours is an adult if it matches my second picture.

By the way, the correct way to measure scorps is from the tip of the carapace to the tip of the extended tail -- measuring it curled will give a much smaller result.

And while emps can reach those sizes, it's actually quite rare. There's two "morphs" of the species, savanna and forest. Forest are MUCH larger but the vast majority of imports are savanna morph. Some of the emps you see in the videos (I haven't watched them, sorry) may be forest morphs, or they may be other species that resemble emps. I have a Heterometrus longimanus that's enormous compared to the adult emps I've owned.

seriously? I 've seen people on youtube with ones that are wider and much longer than mine. Unless of course the camera makes them look bigger. Look, here are two videos of their scorps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9v_HTrWPIc mine are very nearly two thirds of the size of those. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppgxt-6tc9E and these are 3-4 times the size of mine.

I saw a couple at a show once, and I've seen some pictures floating around the boards. They're about the size of my adult female H. longimanus -- in other words, huge.
