    You *may* be able to get away with keeping a pair together. However, Paruroctonus are very aggressive towards each other. I have kept P. boreus together for a few months and the female always ends up eating the male.

    On Scorpion Forum, says they are communal if enough food is provided, which seems to be the case with most communal scorps: http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/t493-p-silvestrii-caresheet
    However, this one I have does seem to be way more skittish and reclusive than my Baja Bark Scorpions. I have 7 in one enclosure and they just walk all over each other like hamsters. So I could see why p. silvestrii's temperament might make for a risky communal situation. Might be worth a try, I keep the enclosures by my work desk and would try to break up a fight.
