Good day my friend, are you sure the pet store gave you the correct name?

the reason i am asking is, i cannot find info on this species at all, i took out the ’olive’ from the name also, but cannot seem to find any information.

I have heard of kealed turtles, but not kealed scorpions

Hmm, very strange, still, i cannot find anything, and searching terms is part of what i do for a living :)
Is it safe to assume that your scorp looks like a flat rock scorp? From what i know, digging around and from documentaries, a scorpion is not full grown at 2 inches, now, unless i am malinformed, the average minimum size is 3 to 4 inches. Across most species

What makes you say the scorp is pregnant? are you sure she/he is not molting?
tanya :)

on the search with ya my friend

Olive-keeled Flatrock-- Hadogenes paudensis
2 inches, is that counting the tail and palps? If so, then it is not an adult, if that is only counting the body length, it might be an adult. You say you believe it is female because you think it is gravid (pregnant) what makes you think that?
