i've another question...how can I recognise if it's a male or a female? ... I read something in an article related with the two small brushes located below the scorpions but I still don't know if it's a HE or a SHE...

the pectinal tooth count (small brushes) can be your best bet on sexing most scorpions
but i do not know the pectine count on this species and it can be a pain realy to count them.


maybe someone here will know what the pectine count on hadruroides lunatus is

The angle of the pectines is a good way to sex, if the base of the pectines touch it is male, if the angle spreads them out further where the bases do not touch they are female.

It is a HE like H.l. said , if the angle was wider then it would be female .
Straight body from above and fat claws also screams male. Very Happy
