Those O pallipes look awesome. Are they like other Opistophthalmus and rarely seen out of their burrows?

Thanks man. I pretty much see these guys outside their burrows every day at dusk, they are also very active so they are much different than O.wahlbergii and O.glabrifrons which tend to stay in their burrows most of the time. The males especially will sit outside their burrows for a few hours at a time.

Good to know thanks. Never owned this species because of their reputation of being pet holes. Will keep an eye out for this one

Thanks Gert.
For Parabuthus a lifespan of anything from 4-5 years is the norm from what I have seen.

Thanks guys Smile
Gert, no these two will now share the same area for the next two or three days just to make sure the female has been mated successfully. Hottentotta are very communal when they are adults from what I have seen.
