Both Scorps you post are 100% males The easiest way to sex an Emperor scorpion is to look underneath it, at the genital operculum (genital opening), which is located next to the feather like structures,(pectines) see the photo below. If this part of their body is oval shaped, it's a male. If it's heart shaped, it's a female.
