    Here's a thread for sharing your personal favorite scorpion species! I'll kick it off by pointing out my favorite scorpion, and that's Pandinus imperator, known and loved as the Emperor scorpion!

    My Parabuthus. Androctonus are fun too, but just because they're so squirrely.
  3. Juveniles of Rhopalurus junceus and Tityus bastosi.;)
  4. My Hadogenes Troglodytes for the moment!

    My favorite personal species is Rhopalurus junceus.
  6. My favorite would be my H paucidens. Have had her for over a year, was my very first scorpie love. Ive got a few other species since then but I always go back to talking of her when I am telling ppl of my collection.
    She is in my avitar pic to the left.

    Its soooo hard to choose! But I'd have to go with either P. transvaalicus or R. junceus.

    Lychas mucronatus, for its lightning fast hunting habits
    Lychas infuscatus, for its secretive nature
    Centruroides nigrescens, from orange to black metamorphosis

    Parabuthus villosus. I think they are the perfect representative of the scorpionkind.

    Apistobuthus pterygocercus. Just recently found out about these! Gotta love those disc shaped segments :D

    so hard to decide, i absolutely love liocheles species but also love our native buthids, so small, so active and such ravenous feeders

    Androctonus australis. My baby A australis is the most active of all my scorps always out and about at anytime of day.

    Anything Parabuthus is great for me, all my animals are fearless, feeding machines. They also seem to be pretty ruthless, with some ripping off every single leg of their prey, prior to actually feeding upon it...

    I've always loved any Androctonus species. But lately I've really been enjoying my B.jacksoni's, they are just so fun to watch hunt and I love the different patterns/shades of orange. Beautiful scorpion.

    Just took this pic.

  18. Emperor Scorpion for me. Soon (hopefully) they will shut down the importation of this species and they will be seen for the amazing scorpions they are.

    I love this species. Active, tunneler, climber, contrasty colors! I also love the proportions.
