well although it is big.. there is one bit of a trick involved.. you can see the tergites are very separated so Im sure before it was mounted they stuffed the crap out of its body which would make it longer than it was alive.. still a large scorpion though.
Or one could argue that the person holding the scorpion is a little person...
I noticed it has a red telson . . . not the rare and coveted P. dictator by any chance, is it?
Color is about the worst form of ID there is. The color of the toes and telson in all but an extremely few instances is immaterial, and should never be the key characteristic in IDing a spp.EAD063 said:The toes seems red too... I was leaning more twoards a cruel trick with paint... Weird.
they arent morphs, they are exactly the same. It's just a matter of size distribution. The Forest allows enough resources to let emperors grow to greater sizes than the savanah can maintain. There are no differences in the morphology of them.one of those links back there has pictures with alleged p. imperator savannah morph and forest morph, the forest morph appearing much larger, greenish, and with a relatively very large carapace... do these distinct morphs actually exist??
