That's a female. And they are supposed to look thin. Very erratic feeders too. Slow metabolism.

looks like a male to me too. I hate the medium tails ones. But I still lean more towards male

Hey Keith,

First off all, as a H. Paucidens obsessed fan Laughing, I congratulate you on this excellent choice.
Very gorgeous scorp you have there. It is one of my most beloved species.

Looking at its size and at the metasomal segments, and I have compared it with my H. Paucidens. I too would say female. Males have longer metasomal segments a very stockier tale and much longer.

However I do agree with you both Keith and Yames.
Yames is right in saying it should look thin... And it should look flat because that is an important feature of this species. Hence their name of course.

However, if compare her to my girl I find her very skinny...
Of course ,mine has been pampered and spoiled , and is now a bit fuller so to speak Very Happy


Mine ate like a construction worker the first weeks... Now she is not taking any food, so the part of them having a changing eating pattern I can understand:)

I like your enclosure too, the "hiding" stairs are nice and tight.
And they like that very much. Mine has crevices, and a big pile of rocks, and still manages to go in the crevice nearest the substrate, worm itself under the stone and stuff itself in the tiniest crack, because well... It's a H. Paucidens thang Laughing


They like it nice and warm Smile


Enjoy your beautiful scorp!



Take care,



Joey

It could be an immature male which would lead to why were all so confused. I agree with Joey that normaly males have longer tails but I would like to point out that females ususally have smaller tails. But I could be wrong...Joey's the expert.
