the pic is a bit bright and washed out so... in my novice opinion I would say P. transvaalicus although I am probably wrong. It does look like an adult I had a while back

It lookes like an Androctonus mauritanicus, but I'm not 100% sure.

Do you have a better pic?
Not P.transvaalicus, I am also leaning towards A.mauritanicus.

The Chelae are far too bulbous to be bicolor from my experience. I'd have to say its much more likely to be Androctonus crassicauda, mauretanicus or even liouvillei, although I really doubt the last one. Unfortunately, without closer inspection, I wouldn't be able to tell you what exactly it is, but more in terms of what its not.

Actually when i look at the pictures of crassicauda it looks alot like it. When i called the guy from the store i think he checked his invoice of when he got it but i will post a video that i have but they might not be much better because i dont want to take apart its hide and disturb it

Doesn't look like an A. bicolor.

The granulation shown on the picture has ruled it out being A. bicolor, so maybe it is A. crassicauda, or one of the other black Androctonus.

Here's a pic of A. bicolor for comparison.

Showed it to a friend of mine who breeds them, he says it definitely is an A. Crassicauda

Yep! Granulation & thinner Chelae. There is no other A. sp. with this thin chelae.

You can easily differ A.mauritanicus(dark) from A.crassicauda(pale) by the color of the pectines! A.crassicauda is a little more brownish too.

Anyway it's a 100% A.crassicauda!
