[b]Yes I have checked out the links what others have posted. I can not make heads or tails of it either. Maybe these pics will help ID a little better. These are the best pics I can get. Thanks in advance.

Looks like a Heterometrus petersii to me.

It's not a spinifer, H. spinifer normally have red telsons (However, there are exceptions to this) and there is no pronounced internal tubercle on the patella on this individual. (H. petersii has a internal tubercle on the patella but it's not pronounced. Your second pic shows this quite clearly.) I can see granulation on the carapace, so that rules out H. laoticus.

Thank you for your reply. I have studied the links over and over and come to the conclusion that I think you are right about them being petersii. They are definately not spinifers. Thanks for your help.
