They are quite large and a bit "lanky." I have only sporadicaly seen them for sale, and the once I've checked it out they were actualy H.longimanus.

Cheers,
Dave

I saw a pic and really liked it. How big do they get

Lanky as in not as heavy-bodied as some others. Massive chela, though. They get almost as long as emps from what I understand.

Cheers,

Todd Gearheart was selling babies awhile back, apparently his were the real deal.

Officially, H. swammedarni holds the Guiness Book record for the biggest scorp in the world, at somthing like 9" in length. I'd love to see that!
