The bottom scorpion is a uroplectus sp you may keep them.
I can't give exact names, maybe F1refly can help out here, he is pretty clued up with scorpions

Keep it until it moults as then it will be easier to identify as I'm sure it's colours a bit dull to it being so porcine. At that size it is either an adult, or close to it as Uroplectes are a dwarf species. I myself have three Uroplectes triangulifer and will be getting two Uroplectes carinatus at a later stage.
Top one is most definetly illegal, so release him very quickly.
