This is very much a question for: The Burrow in Ghana: Emperor Zone, a section of ScorpionForum, where all the questions regarding Pandinus imperator get answered. The answer to your question cane be found on the stickied thread at the top of that section of the forum: Frequently Asked Questions about Emperor Scorpions (P. Imperator)

Ras, it's also a question for the "sexing species" section. Very Happy

Also, if by "infant," you mean it's a fairly early instar, it may be more difficult to sex.

Yes, much like this line:
"Q: How do I know if my Emperor is a male or female?
A: You can tell by the size of the pectines(the feather looking things). The males would be much thicker and longer than female’s pectines. You can also tell by the shape of the Genital Operculum. The males have an oval shaped Operculum and the females are more rectangular. Here is a link to one of my sexing pictures http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif?t=1198270713"

Taken from here: Frequently Asked Questions about Emperor Scorpions (P. Imperator)

But that is neither here nor there

During an insect exhibition an elderly lady asked the same question regarding scorpions to which my shrewd friend replied: -

"In females the mouthparts are bigger, the brains are smaller... and they can't drive."

This sexist statement does not represent any sentiment of mine, but I still find it darn hilarious!

ROFL

Abib, that pic doesn't look like an emperor to me . . .
