    A guy offered me those scorpions as Pandinus Dictator.
    What do you think? 100% dictator or Asian forest?

    Is he offering a P. Dictator price? If he is we need better pictures, closer ups of body and claws

    It is a little far away with the camera but I'm pretty confident those are dictator. When that illegal shipment got out of Africa a few years ago, many of them went to EU. They also seem more careful about IDing scorpions there than in ...some other countries.

    My biggest concern is that they are Heterometrus...

    They're definitely not Heterometrus. The telson is far to light coloured. They are most certainly Pandinus.

    From the pic u gave, yes, high possibility dictator. Also, dictator's body seems granulated.
