    Last night, this guy sneaked into my house. After looking its name up on the internet, I guess it calls Emperor Scorpion. As the Internet said It can be found throughout West Africa’s forested areas but where I live is South East Asia so I'm not sure about it.
    I just wanna know more about this little guy. So please help me if you can. Thanks.
    Here are its picture.

    That is 100% an Asian forest scorpion . Possibly an emporer but more than likely a heterometrus species. They can be found all over Asia. In the wet foresty areas usually underground in a hole

    Did you decide to keep it

    Heterometrus species aka Asian Forest Scorpion.
     
  4. If you post a pic of the claws and cephalothorax (head) we might be able to find a species for you.

    If its from Vietnam its probably a petersii species, I believe that is one of the species common to that area.

    Vietnam has to be one of the most badass heaven-nations ever for keepers: Scorpiones and Scolopendridae straight in your home, for free, like not even a birthday surprise, without dealing with FedEx and etc absurdity :-s

    Not to mention the sheer size of their specimens. When a Scorpion sneaks into your house in Vietnam it's the size of a lobster :D
