    gotta agree, looks like two males, the pectines are a pretty good way to quickly get an idea of the sex, though looking at the genital operculum (sp?) will give you a more precise idea. Females in general have shorter pectines than the male. This rule doesn't work well for all species but it is a pretty good indicator in Pandinus and Heterometrus species.
