Default Dune Scorpion

hi, i ordered a juv dune scorpion, and it came today.
Had real problems finding it in the box, then when i found it, it was about 1cm big. I thought as it was a juv it would be about 1 inch, is 1 cm right for a juv of this species?
thanks.

you can make sure if you place them on a sheet of glass or similar clear piece - and look at the underside, the male will have a more round pectine whereas the female will have a kinda heart/fly's head shaped one - the pectine is the spot just above those bits that stick out like feathers

Where did you get your Hadrurus arizonensis from? I've been keeping my eye out for one for the future but noone seems to stock them at the moment.
