Wild Caught, when I first caught him I just glanced at him thinkin Arizonensis. Cause thats what I was after plus it was a decent size. And when I got home I noticed it was way different lol
I live in Washington, Utah. Right next to arizona.
Kinda wanted some opinions on it. I was leaning in Paruroctonus, Becki? Maybe?
Also its a little chubby and hasnt eatin anything ive fed yet, just kills it. Dont know if its ready for molt or gravid.
Id gues its about 3 inches

No, it's not a valid subspecies -- it's a morph, so the proper name is Hadrurus arizonensis "pallidus."

Hadrurus Arizonensis Pallidus
Any idea if that looks about adult size?
Not really a good pic to tell
Tryin to figure if its readyin for a molt or gravid?
Doesnt eat, very hostile even for a Hadrurus.
I know dont panic on the not eating, im not.. Really 0.o Smile
Thanks for your help!!

Well, the dorsal cord is pretty visible, so probably one or the other. If it's the latter, good luck . . . this species is notoriously hard to rear in captivity.
