    She's a beauty :D A female for sure. There are several species of flatrock scorpions though. Yours is Hadogenes paucidens, the olive-keeled flatrock scorpion. They get the obvious name from the olive-yellow keels on their back. How long have you had her?

    Cool :) Yeah, these are one of the largest scorpion species in the world. Male flatrocks are actually the longest (though emperors have more bulk). I'm not sure how knowledgable you are with this species, but in case you didn't know, male flatrocks have a much longer metasoma (tail) than the females. Helpful information when sexing them anyhow, in case the others were still undetermined.

    Not very. A 1 out of 5 on the venom scale. They rely on their shear size and powerful chelae to overpower prey and dissuade predators, rather than venom.

    That is a really cool specimen, very bulky looking.
