I have a pair of Opistophthalmus boehmi either a female/male or two females.I have kept them seperated in a divided terrarium 2 x (30cm x 30cm - see pic.)
Now I just discovered that one of them have managed to slip over the top (the divider) so there are now living together.
I don't know how long they have being doing that.There are only one entrancehole to there hide so they must know the exsistence of each other.Seems they doing just fine with living together.
But what now..Should I let them be together,maybe remove the divider so they get more space or should I seperate them again ? Advise needed plz

Hmmm... If it was me, I'd separate them and make a larger divider. But that would just be me being cautious.

I suppose you could try letting them live together to observe their behaviour, but just bare in mind that they are not communal.

First question to ask is: Are they communal?

because I don't know.

They shouldn't be communal according to caresheets but I was hoping some ppl here had tryed that with good results.
I think I will play safe and seperate them again and provide a higher divider.Just in case Wink
