so today was feeding and cleaning day. All went like normal until i got to my A.a. I pop the lock and open the lid to find what looked to be it's tail sticking out of it's scrape. after grabbing the long tweezers, i lift the rock it hides under and lo and behold, it moulted. Not sure what sex the bugger is as of yet. I'll get some pics of the moult and post them if anyone wants to try to sex it.

I'll also post some pics of the scorp as well. i just need to wait for the flatmate to get home, so i can borrow his cam.

In Androctonus there is a difference in pectinecount. Just put the scorpion in a clear container and take a picture of the vertal side. But be careful handling this dangerously venomous creature! If you post the pectinecount, people here can sex it.
