Long story. The guy I got them from originally said he had 3 for sale. I told him I wanted all 3. Once we were closing the deal he inform me that he had 4, but I told him I had already sent the money for 3, he said he would through in the 4th no charge. I ask him what the sex was and he said 2 n 2. I assumed he new what he was talking about since he said he been in the business for 25yrs. When I got the scorps one died within an hour of unpacking them. I think it was to close to the heat pack. I sex it and it, by my inspection it was a female. So that means I had 2males and 1 female left. I decided to sex them today. These were the best shots I could get, but I want the opinion of someone outside.

I know they aren't the best pic's, but these are 3 different scorpions, but I agree. I think their all females.

You really should get another camera :/
This is what a i3 Leiurus quinquestriatus molt looks like with a Nikon 85mm Macro on an old Nikon D80

Tell me something I don't know. The camera isn't the problem, it's the lens!

Yes Sir, I'm hoping to get started as soon as I can see the females, of course the male as well mature. The females I got were said to be 4th & 5th instar of course he said there were 2n2 males and females. Turns out they are all females. Two of the females has to be 5th instar and the other 4th, so 1 more molt for the larger ones and at least 2 molts for the smaller one. The place where I ordered the male only say med-large size, so I don't know what instar it will be. But I do want to wait for the females to mature, before I introduce him. What do you think?

Sounds good!
Definitely not the easiest sp. to breed, and even less to raise the young.

I wish you luck on this!
