It's probably just an emp. Maybe it molted not so long ago or it just has a unique color to it. I don't think it's Pandinus cavimanus.

put it on a darker surface then take another picture, it could be a cavimanus and if you put one of those in with emperors itll destroy them since cavis are like demented emps on speed

There is no need to . it looks exactly the same . i checked out few red claw pics and there are nothing like my scorp.They are red in certain areas and my scorpion is dark brown throughout its whole body.i am confident now that it is an emperor.

its and emperor you can tell by the stinger color (whatever its called)

I read in the cavi care sheet a good way to tell the difference is by the stinger color
cavis have all black or 'matching' color stingers that correspond to the rest of their bodies color

so in my case mine is black head to stinger except for the claws which are reddish in color

since yours is whitish in color it would safe to say its a emp

correct me if i am wrong but i am pretty sure thats a good way to tell

i never heard about that but it could be true. i have them in the same tank for about a month now and their doing fine. i will have to check if one of these scorpions is a female. i am preety sure the black one is a male but i never checked the brown one.
