now i dont speak whatever language this is in... but i think I can get the basics from it - use drop down menu to select your scorpion
clickerty

Found in Etheopia / kenya / somalia / tanzania
4mth gestation
next line not sure
size 3.5-5.5cm
substrate /terrain - see the picture
temp 25-30oC
humidity 50%
next 3 lines not sure
bottom line i think is pectinal tooth count for males n females

well if you were desperate to know you could try the double tub method

take two clear plastic tubs of the same size, put scorpion in the first and hold it down with kitchen roll, then carefully put the second tup inside the first so the scorpion is held in place.

Turn over - take a picture / use a jewellers loupe.

does anyone know if Hottontotta has any usual visual sexual dimorphism without using the above technique? I'm not up to scratch on buthids Embarassed

Common names are for common scorpions.
