Thanks for posting up GS I'll get another take on the species as I don't recall reading the care sheet on the venom list. I had another one but the server is down and only have a printed copy.

In my opinion, i think as long you keep it dry.. shouldn't be a prob while you are able to get hold of some sand. If you wish to save some money, you can get "self-collect" some sand too, just make sure you "bake/microwave" them to kill of any harmful parasites that might be in them.

Hope it helps bro

Some keepers will offer a water bowl/ mist a side of the tank once every 2 weeks or a month etc.. just make sure if you mist, the water will be fully evaporated within 1-2days.. else.. its too damp and you need to change the substrate.

I guess it'll be good to have a mixture. If your P. Trans is able to burrow through the sand and hide itself under a flat stone/log you provide. It should be ok.

Something like this below would be ideal, Enjoy the beautiful pictures too.. by Hauser Very Happy

Sexual dimorphism will be more visible when they reaches adulthood:

scroll down all the way, its way at the bottom Smile Did a quick search for you and found that link. hahaz

It amazing to watch them grow.. each time when they molts, their tail size is an increase of up to 1.7times its original size.. in the little experience i had with them.

If you have the patience (which i dont sometimes Very Happy) you can get them at 2i, cheaper and you can monitor their instar stages.

Have fun, but exercise caution when dealing with them.

Cheers!
