Pectines are too far apart from each other


male is \/
female is \ /

At least that is as far as my sexing of emps goes What a Face
I think at least the first one is female... But you have some more specimen you can compare.. so..

Well you have more experience than me here, so I doubt I'm right if you say you think they are males. You have some for some time now (albeit a male that gave birth LOL)

hihi

Pluto, the gap method of sexing is more applicable to families such as Vaejovidae. At a guess, I'd agree with Bex that all are male, but it's always a little easier when you have them in front of you.

Bex, do you have a flatbed scanner by any chance? I've put scorps on one of those before and it got a great shot (I had to immobilize them with a towel, though).

The last pic is blurry, but I'm going to go with all male. The combs tend to go outwards where the females seem to have them shorter and more straight. ((hope that makes sense being I don't know all the right words, but I spent a few nights doing nothing, but looking at differences in scorpion sexes and have been able to sex all 12 of my adults)) I looked at pics of my own male and female emperor and yeah. Im going to say you got all males there. Wink
