There are a few that look like that, but the most available in the hobby would be either Androctonus bicolor or Parabuthus transvaalicus. It could also be Androctonus mauritanicus or Parabuthus villosus, but the villosus and transvaalicus get quite big.

What are your experience with them?
If you got the time, maybe you could give me some tips about them? Couldnt find an caresheet when i googled it :/
I only got H. Laoticus, and they are really easy to take care of!

Well, I keep them the same as all my desert spp. So, low-ish humidity and I keep them at about 30 - 33 temp wise. I also keep them communally, 2.3 of them. They are on consolidated sand as they love to burrow, especially the females. Thats about it really.

I also give them a VERY SMALL bottle cap of water every second week. Just watch out that they dont drown as they are very small.

Sweet dude.. I hope to find some in the near future Smile
If its not too much trouble.. Could you maybe tell me what scorps caresheet leans most towards the O. Innesi?
Im am very new to scorps.. And i only have forrest scorps. And i dont wanna end up killing them because i didnt know enough :/
And the last thing! i promise.. The sting, it isnt any worse than the H. Laoticus, right?

Check out the desert species care sheet on this forum(I forgot where it is).
Their sting is worse than an H.laoticus as they are Buthids, but their small size means they inject less venom than larger species so their sting isnt life threatening imo.
