If what I remember from my scorpion keeping days is correct, generally speaking, the males have longer pectines than the females. (Im working from memory here so if this is the wrong way round, please someone correct me rolleyes.gif )
The first pic appears to be male, the second female

Try doing a google search for "hadrurous arizonensis sex key". There used to be a site which gave pectibe tooth counts (the comb "teeth"-like structures on the edge of the wings) for Hadrurous arizonensis

Cheers
Mark

The best way to sex adult Hadrurus spp is by males being much thinner than females. Show a clear pic of the entire scorp and I can probably sex it for you.
