Nice!! i've never seen a juvenile before.

Cactushugger: What are your personal opinions on this genus/species? A buddy of mine has a couple of them for sale that I've been eyeballin'


They are the aliens of an already alien looking animal. Very bizarre.

Mine can really move when he wants to. And he's my "strongest" scorpion, even when compared to my Emp.

Check em out CactusHugger:



That string stick thing on the left hand side is substrate that decided to stick to the scorpion.
I'm not sure on the sex of either but I would like to bring them home with me.

They're both female. The one on the right MIGHT be a male but the tail is kinda blurry to tell these are sexually dymorphic species. Females have short segments on the tail males have them really long. (if they're mature)

I would like to have a H. paucidens someday. Flat rock scorpions intrigue me.

Indeed..it makes it easy to determine the gender.

As an example Mako, here is my male H. troglodytes, showing the long metasomal segments:

The same will also apply to H. paucidens.

Backwater reptiles had them for an okay price. $15.99 isn't too terrible in my opinion (but it's the shipping that'll get ya).

Good info to have. Thanks guys. Vespers: how old is your male?

My guy wants 40 for the pair. I think I'll pick em up at that price.
