I'm not 100% I have never kept these before but my previous experiance with Opistophthalmus is no.
So I'm keeping these seperate on that basis Smile

Awesome! It's so rare that I see H. troglodytes in the hobby. cheers

(By the way, you don't capitalize the species in binomial nomenclature -- only the genus Smile.)

right-oh hun Smile

Just double checking the knowledge of people here... These came as opistophthalmus sp. Tanzania... Which I believe narrows it down to O.glabifrons and boehmi. These are fully grown at about 5-6ish cm. I have read boehmi are this size, the glabifrons are about 11-12cm.
Are there any other Opistophthalmus species in Tanzania that I might have overlooked?

The colouration looks right, particularly the last two segments on the metasoma. And the size looks right too for them to be boehmi.

Man the H. troggy looks blisteringly wicked... I would love to get my hands on one of those for the thrill of building the habitat....

Yeah you could make some pretty neat terraniums with these. Lots of little nooks and crannies for them to hide in Smile
