Could you please ID this scorpion species?it was sold as Pandinus imperator but it's much smaller than an imperator and far too aggressive.Could you tell me if it sa Heterometrus or Pandinus and if possible,which species?The pincers look like an imperators but some Heterometrus have this kind of pincers,like Heterometrus swammerdammi.
Thanks

That's a P imperator, Emperor scorpion. You can tell by the granulation on the chela among other things. I have some pretty small ones that throw a sting at anything invading their tank (my hand, brushes, etc.).

If you get a shot of its tail in one of your photos, we can confirm -- sounds like it's a juvenile (white or light brown telson instead of dark brown). Most immatures are more feisty than adults.
