This was sold to me as Heterometrus longimanus, I was so sure of it when I bought it but now I have doubts. It's starting to look like H spinifer to me...

In my experience, juvenile H. longimanus have white or cream telsons . . . so I doubt one that young would have that dark of a telson.

Sorry, dude.

The chela are too smooth to be an emp -- that, and the telson is dark.

If it's H. laoticus, the carapace will have no granulation.
