Howdy all!
I know Androctonus is the fat tails and the Parabuthus is the thick tails, what is the difference though that one gets named Androctonus and the other Parabuthus?? Thanks!

An Androctonus is a FAT tail, meaning it has a huge, FAT tail carrying on its back. It is more venomous and its overall size is way smaller than a Parabuthus

A Parabthus is a thick tail, meaning it has a fairly large tail considering its bodysize. Less obvious than FAT tails, but still.. in comparison with other scorpions, a huge tail. It is hairier, more robust, way larger and less venomous. On the other hand, because it is larger it delivers a lot more venom and some subspecies of them can even squirt venom 3 feet far and away.

Both are desert species, both are active whereas Parabuthus species generally can be seen more out in the open.
