I not certain about the species, but I think it could be H. longimanus.

Maybe a male? As Bam said, the picture wasn't that good, sorry.:);)

Looks female, still kinda hard to tell with that pic, and it's not a longimanus, pedipalps aren't slender enough.
Either petersii, laoticus, or spinifer. From the pictures I'm leaning towards laoticus from the lack of granulation in the pictures, if there is granulation somewhere that the pictures didnt pick up on the head try to get a picture of it or just use paint and circle where it is.

could be a female laoticus.. can you take a picture with flash.. most laoticus will look flat black on a picture with flash..

Very good advice, if you flash it and it comes out black it's an extreme probability its laoticus, if you flash and it comes out green or brown it's a spinifer or a petersii. Don't rule out spinifer yet.

ps. heterometrus sp suck at IDing outside of longimanus if you havent noticed

Oops, looks like I was all wrong. How did that happen?:D;)

Yeah, it looks like a female from the second picture. I would guess H. loaticus now.:D

Yeah the local guy that bought one from there says his guess is a loaticus as well.

I am still looking for my digital camera to snap a pic

Keep in mind I am making a guess, and like I said I could most likely be 100% wrong.

All I did to make my Id was look at maybe 19 or so pics of Hets outside the small group of ones i know it couldn't be. I am really getting lazy in my ID attempts as of late.

I was thinking petersii because the pic made it look big to me but I too am thinking laoticus, if no granulation then you will know. Petersii look like giant laoticus but with a little granulation, laoticus are kind of small compared to other Hets common in the hobby in the US.
