I love photography and consider myself an amateur photographer. I mainy like shooting critters, mainly scorpions, tarantulas and centipedes, but I also love shooting nature and landscapes. Email me at centipedesnscorpions@yahoo.com with opinions.

Looks to me like that would be an Androctonus bicolor... Kinda hard to tell from the pics...

this is one of my favorites that is androctonus crassicauda the arabian fat tailed scorpion it can be confused with a. bicolor becaues of reigon and color bicolor is a shiny black with very thin pinchers and a. crassicauda has a bit thicker oner and threr a brownish red to black but this is a nice one in this pic...

Really? Ive never seen a crassicauda have lightened patella before. Usually are a uniform dark color from femur to tarsus... But I could be wrong. I have never kept these before. And yes, it is a awesome scorpion. One to be respected!

huge hobbiest in scopions

Judging from the color It looks like a bicolor. But the claws are to heavy. It has to be a Crassicauda.
