so all of them? for food you will want crickets as a staple, the size of the scorp and crix and how often you feed it will effect how many you feed it. you should feed it once a week. since this is your first scorp, to get a feel for how much you should feed it, i would feed it one cric at a time until it stops eating. now i am not a big fan of desert scorps so i cant tell you how much you will want to feed it. this species *can* be aggressive but wont kill you if it stings you. this species, from what i have heard, loves to burrow, so you will want a good 6-7 inches of sand. you will want temps of around 80 and humidity in the high 50s maybe low 60s. i have never kept this species so i would pm metz to double check.

That’s it, I officially hate you Meee. Ophistothalmus are one of my favorite genus and sooooooo hard to find in the states!
Ok, back to the original topic. Meee pretty much covered it for this species. The only things I will add is to only offer a water dish for one week each month. Also, as for food, you want the prey to be about 1/3 the length of the scorpion’s body, *not* including tail. Yes, this species can be a bit more fiesty than some so mind your fingers. Desert hairy is a great little scorp and relitavely easy to care for. You will want to make sure that you *do not* moisten the sand and make sure that you use appropriate reptile type sand. Scorpions, especially desert species can devlop mycosis very quickly, for which there is no cure, so, make sure the sand stays dry and, if in the event that the water dish gets knocked over while it is in there, remove as much of the wet sand as you can and replace it with fresh, dry sand. However, that being said, what you *DO* want to do is to moisten the sand and let it dry completly in the designated container that you are going to use *before* you put the scorpion in. Wetting the sand then letting it dry hardens the sand somewhat, thus rendering it more suitable for burrowing in.
Provide a couple hides for them to pick and choose from as scorpions tend to like to wonder a bit at night.
Here’s a care sheet on this species (as well as a lot of other species as well )Scorpion Care

You’re EVIL Meee.
We are, at the moment, focusing our money on other, non invert related things and thus, invert buying has been put on the back burner.

Well, it’s by choice. There are some things that we’ve been wanting and meaning to do for quite a while that have taken a back burner so we’ve opted to put the inverts on hold for the moment (and in light of a bunch of newly hatched s’lings) to venture into some of the other things we’ve been wanting to do/get.
