Thanks in advanc
That looks more like a Parabuthus species, mossambicensis probably..
After doing some research, it does looks like a parabuthus sp
I was told it is a Yellow Fat Tail from the seller but he is nt very sure himself as he is not into scorpion
I notice that this particular sp looks different from the others so i thought its another color morph
Here's the original link of his sale thread
*Sp2 does not looks like a a.australis too, right?*
The first picture posted on the link IS an Androctonus Australis. The third picture, which is the scorp you have, is probably a Parabuthus M. like stated above. The dude should not be selling those hots if he does not know the proper care and species that they are....:8o
Certainly looks like parabuthus. nonetheless a very nice specimen. looks like mossambicensis indeed but am not sure. could be easier to identify if you would post another pic(s)
Definitely 'looks' like P.mossambicensis. But, as we all should know, tiny photographs posted on the web or opinions of said photographs expressed in all capital letters are not the definitive method for making the ID of a specimen. Nor is the consensus of the AB peanut gallery . At least they shouldn't be.
Would still like to see better photos that are taken from a closer perspective. P.mossambicensis is a likely candidate IMO.
Here is a photo of one I took for comparison.
It looks more like a Parabuthus pallidus in my opinion. But like already mentioned this pic is not detailed enough to give a positive ID. Close-up pics of the metasoma will be neccessary if we should try to ID it.
Heh, actually a Parabuthus sp as my 2nd scorp after keeping AFS for more than a year is not that bad
About the price, was it worth for an exchange of the parabuthus sp?
