Can you get a better picture that shows the granulation on the carapace?

Patience my friend, patience...

Honestly, it is not really possible to give you a reliable ID based on those pictures. There is too much reflection from your flash that doesn't allow us to see what kind of granulation the scorpion has.

It doesn't have any granulation at all to be honest sir,more likely,I've seen someone posted in your Facebook page, H. spinifer,the granulation on its pincers are the same,rather relatively the same

If there is no granulation at all, then it is most likely H. laoticus. This is the only sp. of Heterometrus without granulation of the carapace. Both H. petersii and H. spinifer have some granulation, as does H. longimanus.

Laoticus? hmmm.... does the pincer of laoticus have granulation? I see a few granulation only at the top portion of its pincer O__o
