    Can you identify this little one? I was wrong at first glance, how about you? :) 20181013_125509.jpg 20181013_125457.jpg

    Haha well, I didn't have a name for him but I guess I do now!

    And nope! Not mesobuthus. Although I am trying to get a speckled mesobuthus. Super cool, don't know the name though.

    BUT.. this is Buthus Draa. Looks strikingly similar to the deathstalker, and finding out much about this scorpion seems difficult, not a great deal of info about them out there. Super cool species. They are major diggers, and super active. And from what I can see, more aggressive than the deathstalker. This guy flicks his tail at everything. Went on a fruit fly killing spree without eating any. Really interesting scorpion for sure!

    I have a Buthus draa (definitely want more) and mine is a MONSTER when it comes to food. He/she has only refused food once since I got it. Great species for sure!
  8. I'm with CWilson1351, was just going to say it looks like a Buthus draa to me

    EDIT: Just saw your post where you already said the name :$
