Keep the hot and dry...90F. The roaches should make up the majority of their diet with an occasional meal worm.

I would use a mix of sand and some aquarium gravel. Area of the enclosure should be three to four times the length of the scorpion. A Kritter Keeper would be fine if you can get one. Don't make the tank so large that it can't easily find prey items.

Normally no. A healthy adult human being wouldn't die from a sting of these but children and old people could.
