Thanks! The pictures did not look at all blurry to me! Maybe 'cause I don't wear my glasses correctly lol! I am planning to get some H.gentili soon which is practically an all-black version of franzwerneri.Thanks! A bit on the blurry side because I used my phone but I had a good time
I hope you get a few of them soon stugy
Be careful as Gentili is a lot more venomous than Franzwerneri (as im sure you know). Definitely one of the HOTTER onesThanks! The pictures did not look at all blurry to me!

Here is a really nice article on 'Mice Envenomed by the Scorpion: Hottentota Gentili"Be careful as Gentili is a lot more venomous than Franzwerneri (as im sure you know). Definitely one of the HOTTER ones
Males definitely reach 7i and I'm not sure about females reaching 8i but it's very possible My females weren't much bigger than my males but they all mated and produced tons of babies of which many people got them nowLol thanks for your support guys.. Yeah I had heard about H.gentili being way more potent than franzwerneri.. that was fortunate as I can't get anything too hot at the moment!
I'm not sure about the i8 females.. I thought males only reach i6 and females i7..
I thought gentili was a subspecies of franzwerneri. I probably read the pdf wrong ("Overview of Genus Hottentotta" I think it was called? It's on Euscorpius. I'll go find it and edit this post with the link to it). That's pretty awesome with the size difference though! H.gentili is one of my top 3 dream scorpions second only to A.crassicaudaHottentotta franzwerneri used to be a subspecies of Hottentotta gentili. There are definitely a lot of similarities, especially when you look at the metasoma and telson.
I have 4 adult/subadult H. gentili. 3 are at 7i including one male, and one adult female is at 8i. The 8i female is huge, nearly twice the size of the other 7i specimens.
