    Bought this little guy today and was able to get a partial undershot. Is this enough to sex him or will I need to be able to view more? Thanks!

    Can you take a picture with a better angle?

    A trick for doing this is to put your scorpion in a clear container, gently pack it down with a piece of cloth, then put the lid on the container to secure the scorpion in place. You can now flip the container upside down and take clear pictures of the pectines/operculum.
