What's up all my fellow scorpion lovers...I was wondering if anyone was able to tell me how to accurately sex an emperor and if not are there any specific characteristics I can go buy and also is there any other types of scorpions I can house with my emperor without any problems occurring and is this even a good idea? Any info and suggestions would be helpful Laughing

Typically we suggest that you do not hosue any others outside of pandinus genus but some have found that spinfers can live happily with emperors. Sexing is done by close pectine shots. Post some pics if you wish to have it sexed.

Where exactly do I look to see what determines the sex and where on the body should I take pictures to show everyone to determine the sex....

Although it has been done successfully, I would not advise keeping different species together.

To sex, you need a clear shot of the pectines and genital operculum - Please look at the link in the above thread.
