 Male and female Emperor.

OK I hear from people at pet stores the its the males that get bigger, or the females get bigger! I have no clue who to believe. And the most confusing is the I also her that the male "combs" are small and the females are bigger?! Or vise versa. Please help me.

Personally I believe the males get bigger but, eh?

Iíve heard the females get bigger, topping out around 8 inches with tail. The male is smaller and only gets around 6 inches with tail.

Ok but I hear that the males get bigger in pet stores and from breeders But it would make sense that the males have larger "combs" because they need to find the female.... SO witch is it

Which one gets bigger doesnít mean squat and does not determine gender. My adult male is just as big as my female. Try googling "sexing P. imperator"

thatís no the point! on line it says females have bigger combs, but as i was told by people in the pet store they say males have bigger combs..

And if both of youíre scorpions are the same size it means their the same age one of them will get bigger

Well, seeing as how pet stores donít know their heads from holes in the ground, I wonít even take anything they say into consideration, especially when it conserns inverts. Also, just because mine are the same size does NOT mean they are the same age. One will grow larger than the other when it molts, then the other will be larger after it molts, etc. etc.
For P. imperator in particular (this does NOT apply to all scorpion species the same) the easiest and most acurate way to sex them is to do a pectine count, however, in the case of mature P. imperator, the MALE pectine is longer than the FEMALE

Well then I suppose my male thinks heís a female then? Because heís by far larger than 5 to 6 inches.
