Sexing my flatrock scorpion?

    Just got my first scorpion! I removed his hides temporarily while I fed him so I could be sure he ate, still coming up with an efficient feeding system. Any thoughts on his sex? I'm 65% sure hes a male, but I only caught a brief glimpse of his underside. Help?

    That thing is tiny, way too young/early to tell for sure. But, I'll go with male also, just because the metasoma segments are a tiny bit lengthy, but could be a female in the end.

    Congrats on the nice scorpion! It'll be a while before you can sex it I think. It'll need to molt a couple times and that's going to take a long time.
