I picked this guy up at my LPS, it was sold as an African black fat tail. Im pretty sure its an Androctonus sp. since it looks just like my A. australis except black/dark reddish in color. ive looked and i think it may be a Androctonus crassicauda. these pics arent great but maybe someone can tell me what i have, all pics are without flash except #5
