I just saw this in a tank labled African Emporer Scorpions. It was in with one that obviously was a P. imperator but this looks funny lol
SO i bought it , dont know why just cause. I got a crappy pic of the underside so if you can guess the sex let me know lol (Guess die to the bad pic lol)

Pandinus cavimanus, (AKA Tanzanian Redclaw, African red claw, or red claw emperor). Does not play well with others. {D {D {D Sex is determined by a 'sexual dimorphism' in the claws. See this post @ VL of Male & Female sexing

I bought 2 P cavimanus' at a pet store mislabeled also as P imps. it was a good buy in my opinion. Then I found out that they are pretty aggressive towards tank mates, as I had only 1 left and a corpse.
