Mine would have to be the Buthacus leptochelys under UV. http://arachnohobby.com/B_leptochelys.html

I had a word with Lee @ spidershop (because he originally sold them) and it's Brachistosternus sp. not Bothriurus.. sorry for the confusion... but yes it is an awesome scorpion


for me... Tityus pachyurus, stunning

In terms of looks or shape?
Shape are the Hadogenes.

Color? Hmm that's debatable

Probably Centruroides bicolor. Those things are awesome! Urodacus elongatus are pretty sweet, too. Very Happy

hmm tough question! i like many for different reasons, so i'll list a few in no particular order:

Heterometrus mysorensis (for the claws, they are immense!)
Heterometrus madraspatensis (quite impressive with attractive colouration)
Opistophthalmus sp (there are a large number of very interestingly coloured scorps in this genus, want them all, nearly!)
Centruroides sp, especially vittatus (the colouration of alot of them is lovely)
Parabuthus transvaalicus (something VERY dark and impressive about the way these look, quite ominous)
Babycurus jacksoni (colouration and structure, amazing looking)
Tityus sp (the more colourful ones, lovely! also, they can be quite spindly, which looks cool!)

to be honest though i've left some off this that probably are just as much my favourites lol

Buthacus leptochelys and Smeringus Mesaensis are both a good looking Scorpion IMO.
