Topic Female or subadult male

Post by shaneshac on Mon Feb 17, 2014 12:34 pm

Bought this as one of a "sexed" pair of H jayakari but this is meant to be the male. It looks too large to be a sub-adult male and thinking i have 2 females

Can any of you tell if it looks male or female from these pics?

There can be large males, and also, a FAT one that looks like a pregnant lady Smile

From the 2 pictures above, I can't tell it's sex. If you are able to take a picture (directly from the top of the scorpion) with a ruler by the side of the scorpion, I will be able to estimate it's instar.

For sexing, i'll go with pectine tooth count, and after verifying it's instar, sexing via the chela dimorphism.
