Hottentotta Hottentotta (Fabricius, 1787) aka Alligator Back Scorpion are parthenogenetic.
It simply refers that a mature specimen of this specie is able to impregnate itself without having the need to mate.
Hottentotta hottentotta which are circulating in the hobby are generally females. The occurrence of Hottentotta hottentotta males are very rare in the hobby and possibly only in the wild.
It is distributed widely across Africa. 


Scorpions usually sell by instar, a developmental stage between each moult.

However for pricing convenience, this is a personal GENERAL guideline.

  1. Scorpling: i2 to i3
  2. Juvenile: i3 to i4
  3. Sub-adult: i4 to i5
  4. Adult: i5 and above
