What do you think? It is shaped more like an oval than a heart the pectines dont have long feathers. I will try to get a better pic but my camera sucks. The thing is this scorp is huge. way bigger than the ones @ local pet shops. I will try and get something to show physical size

Thats what I thought last night when i took the pic.

Man I feel so stupid....

A week ago I bought a male hoping to mate them Bang Head

the thing is they tried to. What maybe he has been in the pen for too long.

The operculum is a much more accurate focus to go by.

Try using your camera's macro mode (usually represented by a tulip) and spotlighting the scorp with a flashlight so the camera knows what to focus on.

I'm going to go against the flow here and suggest female -- I can see a heart shape pointing down and the pectines don't look very large.
