going by the colour, and chelae I'd say Heterometrus Spinifer. Asian Forest Scorpion. A Pandinus Imperator would have indents, or noduals on it's chelae

as far as gender it's REALLY young. Maybe 3-4i. The telson[bulb before the sting] is white that's the big indicator. not on it's EXACT age, but stage of development.

Juvenile - white
sub-adult - creamy/yellow
adult - black/dark brown

gender is hard to tell without seeing the genital opercalum. i think thats what it's called? i also am not sure if they can be sexed so young.

With the new pictures you posted I think its more towards the H. Longimanus. The Chelae look pretty long to me. I couldnt tell with the other pics. As far as sexing You'll need someone else on that one. Some species you can use the chelae and such, but I don't know specifics quite yet.

Well it's either a H. spinifer or H. longimanus. I can't really lean one way or the other because it's young. The chela shape and size are about the same at this age. (I'm guessing around 4th instar, but I can't be sure.)
You might have to wait til it's an adult (or at least close to an adult) to get an accurate ID for it.
Have you read this? [ASA] Heterometrus longimanus

As for sexing it, try to get some clear pics of the genital operculum.

It's possible that it could be in the early stages of premolt, or it could just be fat.
