It hisses, idk if that is a reliable indicator as to the type of Heterometrus or not.

Oh they hiss. Even my emperors hiss. They sound like a toothbrush being brushed by your thumb.

Edit: H. petersii have black telsons as well. (from what I've read)

Here's a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZm_TGfLbWU

I think they all may have hissing capabilities.

Your scorps may also be capable of hissing. I know one of my emps does. He's always in a bad mood.

I agree.

I would say male. Thought of Petersii but am still checking the web for more info to make that a calculated guess... In the meantime someone with more Heterometrus experience might confirm it more easily.

Gorgeous scorp btw;) Love it:)

I found out that Heterometrus Laoticus is the only Heterometrus in the genus who has no granulation on the head (prosoma).

The pictures are very clear but if you have a close up of the top of the head I can see if there is some granulation. Then it might perhaps be H. Petersii.....

Read this. http://www.scorpion-forum.com/t8804-h-spinifer-arrival

Edit: My bad, he doesn't mention anything about carapace granulation. But at least you'll learn a little something. Very Happy

Well then judging by the color of the telson (black) and the un-pronounced tibula or whatever, I'd say it is Petersii. <3

Now you can truly say you have a pure black scorpion.
