Is it possibly to keep them without letting them burrow and just providing lots of hides for them?

Split from the caresheet.

Yes, you can keep them this way, but why? Their instinct tells them to burrow; I imagine preventing this from happening would stress them out.

Definitely allow them to burrow. Burrowing is programmed in their DNA. Otherwise, as Mr. Mordax stated, they will definitely get stressed out.

Mine was a pet hole.

Sometimes out at night, but not often . . . before she dug a nice deep burrow, she'd hang out from the lid of the tank.

My 2 have PLENTY of character! Believe me, give them some time to acclimate to their new home and you'll be entertained nightly! They are feisty, always hungry and just awesome!

You might not want a pet hole but in allowing them to do what they would do in the wild is the kindest thing for them.
They arent for looking at really...its more for caring for them and providing for them and if they like to live in their burrows then they are happy. If you would like something for display to look at and to cuddle then get a gerbil Razz teehee

A happy scorpion is a hiding scorpion...not to say that coming out means they are unhappy but giving them what they would have in the wild is the best caring method for them

I gues I was lucky mine burrowed all along the glass its really cool
And my Arizonensis are my most active in the collection ive got. They do hide most of the day but I do catch em wandering around exploring. But the burrows are the coolest part personally, they just look so cool how they dug them. Like a little underground city

I heard 3:1 playsand and calci-sand works for burrowing, this true?

Edit: btw, i'm going to get a H. Arizonensis, would you guys recommend me getting a Large juvenile/subadult or an Adult? I've heard of molting problems and i'm worried about that, however, if i get an adult it could just go and die on me of old age.
