I got this adult H troglodytes last year. Today performing maintenance on the enclosure, so i let it out for a stroll across the table.
I measured 17cm (~6.7inch) from tip of the claws to the tail (extended), not a small scorpion but very docile.
I have my own thoughts about the gender, but i would like to know what you guys think.

I also have 2x 2i/3i juveniles, those will take about 8-9 more years to reach adulthood, very slow growers.

you should take a picture of the underside of the scorpion, it's way easier to tell what gender it is that way.

I think it's a female, that last segment on the tail before the telson is short, the male will have that segment twice as long. Plus it's chonky through the body, the males are slimmer.
I noticed the claws on its feet are quite long! Wow! This scorpion is one impressive specimen!
