You can't really tell unless you raised it from a 2nd instar, or you have the shed exoskeletons.

yeah it hasnt done anything yet.. i got it from some small pet shop seemed to be well knowledged telling me to use basking lights, calcium sand, cotton in my water bowl and a small water dish and that light didnt harm them. So when i got home i decided to do some research of my own on them and found these forums. Thats where i learned 90% of the stuff he told me was wrong. He said she was a female i just havent been able to get close enough to her to tell.. So o well haha she/he seems really healthy just really mean

Hey Brain Smile

I've updated your 1st post from the images you have pm'ed me.

I would say that from the first pic, it's seems to be an adult by the telson coloring (Reddish-brown).

To sex it, Callum has done a guide on [HOW TO] Correctly handle a scorpion

and you may combine it with [HOW TO] Sexing Pandinus spp and Heterometrus spp.

Let us know if you faced any difficulties on sexing your Pandinus imperator.

Regards,

Ya seems most pet shops don't know what they r talking bout. For example. Black light can kill them but when I bought mine all they had on them was black light. I was also told that a sting feels like a gun shot and that sand is ok for their enclosure. Wrong and wrong. Glad you did your research.,
