1) Temperatures
2) Substrate
3) Humidity
4) How big the genus is (generally speaking)


Cheers guys

I have only a little experience with O. boehmi and I haven't been lucky finding much info about opistophthalmus spp. There is something here http://www.ntnu.no/ub/scorpion-files/o_glabrifrons.php I keep my O. boehmi mostly like written and they seems all doing fine.
This is how I keep my O. boehmi...
1. about 25 degrees daytime,a little lower at night.
2. 10cm or more
3. mostly dry / 60-70 %
4. O. boehmi is about 5cm bodysize / 9cm total

You must be aware that they would spend most of there time in there hide.My male is what I see most,my females isn't to keen to come by and say hello ;-) You could call them petholes,if you know what I mean...

I use those bricks you put water over and you get 5-8L substrate.
Just make sure it suitable for them to dig.Soil maybe mixed with a little sand would be good too.
Press the substrate a little and wet it good and let it dry out completly.This makes the soil more stabile.

Cheers
