Could the first one be Hadrurus Pallidus? Just a wild guess though, and a fast comparison to pictures found in google.

First one seems to be a Paruroctonus sp., possibly luteolus or utahensis, both are found in arizona maybe might want to look into the distribution of these compared to where you found it.

Nice corps though, wish I could go out and catch em. Sad

I'm sure you've noticed it already, but that emperor scorpion looks like it went through a bad molt. It's clear in the chelae, indented tergites, and even tail segments. I've never seen one like that before. Did you buy it like that?

That's what confused me, so strange looking, kinda looks dehydrated where it's all sunken in doesn't it, mad

Ooh, I forgot about this thread.
The Emp was given to me by a bloke who just didnt want it any more. It was in a decent setup so looks like it's moulted like that before he had it.
It eats like a pig though so no problem.

How big is the scorpion in the first pic? If it's over 6cm I would go for Hoffmannius sp. If it is under I would agree with Chrome and say probably Paruroctunus sp.
Stab int dark here but for the last species maybe a Serradigitus sp.?

Man, where did you find these US species lol?

Also, are yo keeping H. arizonensis communally? If so, how is it going lol?

Just curious, but are your crickets from a pet store? And did that pet store used to sell another species of cricket? Apparently pet stores have been switching to this new species that grows larger and faster (supposedly).

First scorp is about 3/4", body. Very fast and always ready to sting.
I've also been told it's a Vaejovis sp?
The last species is Tityus ecuadorensis.
The US species are easy to find if you know where to look and the arizonensis have been together for around 8 weeks now. No problems so far. I'm hoping for a mating but no signs so far.
The crickets are from LIVEFOODS. I've not noticed an difference really except the micro crix dont seem to drop dead overnight.

Ahh right lol. I was looking for non Buthidae North American species as I thought all except the emp were US species lol.
What do you do when you don't know where to look to find them lol?

The second picture, the baby scorp appears to be a baby Smeringurus mesaensis. Aka a dune scorp.
