Looks like young Heterometrus sp, need to wait them get bigger for proper id through carapace granuation

Hey


more likely to be Spinifer or Longimanus than Petersii or Laoticus imo



telson on latter two darkens after 4th instar, these in the pic are 5th imo
they also become more matt in appearance compared to the two former which remain shiny till adulthood


not a scientific ID but from my experience keeping and breeding em!

Most Heterometrus do well in group, limz
Provide if basic requirement are met; EG: Enough hiding place, food etc...
Good luck raising them, they are the classic scorpion in my country ;)
