Centruroides Sculpturatus

Look at this chub! pretty sure they are male so doubly impressive.
That’s definitely a female, possibly gravid if she’s kept with males! if not, she’s very well-fed lol!
 
With other species it’s a bit more difficult to sex them, but with Centruroides it’s much easier. Males have very long, slender tails, and are very small compared to the females. if you notice, this scorpion’s body is more bulky and large. and the tail is relatively short as well, so that’s a dead giveaway that it’s a female :)
