Is it an adult? I think males in most scorpions are smaller than the females also. Maybe P.trans is the biggest Parabuthus species :D I don't know that lol

Who uses Wikipedia? Rofl!!
I do use Allscorpionarchives, ocassionally, an excellent source of info from actual owners/breeders. Or I'll text/call gromgrom (Dustin) and rattle his memory cells. Lol!
I only have P. maximus, which won't get large compared to transvaalicus. I'm just now getting into the "hotter" species, so size isn't a big factor for me.

I use wikipedia cause it is quick. At times it does help but it is also unreliable at other times which is why I pointed out that I used Wikipedia:D

Some of the pics I've seen of P. trans are crazy. Pretty sure you've seen them as well. Literally the size of a man's palm, huge!
