Pretty sure it's male given the long metasoma.



Here he is just chilling in his hide while the crickets are just walking over each other.



I chose the name "Ploye" since it's a regional dish we have here that is similar to pancake (reffering to his flattened appearance), but is salty instead of sweet.

That looks like a female to me.

If you're asking to have it sexed, we'd need a photo from the top.

May I suggest replacing the cave with a couple of flat rocks for a nice tight squeeze? They seem to like that (if you don't have flat rocks available, coasters work nicely in a pinch).

Ok, here's some definite proof that it's male.



From above




As for the slate use, a co-worker of mine actually has some extra slate he could give me.
He took measurements of the large KK and the scorp itself and he'd also do all the gluing part.

Can't wait to see that, hopefully my scorp will be even happier.
