I like the T. Asthenes, because the males have wicked long claws, and I've seen the young ones jump.

I like Hemiscorpius lepturus because of their unique venom. I really wish someone could get some here. They are very cool and deserve so much respect.

Apistobuthus pterygocercus has a widened metasomal segment that serves an unknown purpose.

Several Parabuthus species can spray venom.

A pterygocerus for the exceptionally unique metasomal segment.

Lychas scutilus for the length and narrowness of the metasomal segments, and chela.

Tityus obscurus for length of chela as well.

Androctonus genus simply for those wonderfully thick metasoma and potent venom.

Parabuthus villosus for quite possibly the "hairiest" metasoma and telson.

Parabuthus transvaalicus for its accuracy (I have witnessed a straight squirt-gun like stream before)and a range of over a meter makes them a pretty formidable opponent.

Centruroides bicolor simply because I like the two-tone pale yellow/black coloration, A australis hector is very nice for that reason too!

Opistophthalmus genus for the stridulation, I love a good warning mechanism.

Hadogenes genus because they are one of the most aesthetically unique and underrated scorpions out there.

Uroplectes genus (especially U fischeri) for coloration and design. Gotta love the semi-tri-coloreds.

Hottentotta genus for being some of the most interesting communal scorps.

I'm sure I am missing quite a few but those are just some of my personal favorites.

My Hotentottas will wag their lil tails when standing still at eachother like dogs, it`s rather quite interesting to watch.

This might be off-topic if we are just talking about physical characteristics, but let's not forget the unique traits in various scorpion venom that bear applications in medicine:

1) LQ venom contains chlorotoxin that targets cancer cells in the brain specifically, whereas

2) Maurotoxin is derived from Scorpio maurus, being researched currently for applications in treating autoimmune diseases.

I think R. junceus venom is used to cure cancer as well in certain countries, although this method is not reliably documented. I stumbled upon this while I was searching for deals on buying the scorpions themselves.

Scorpions don't just kill, they might have the potential to heal too :)
