Reminds me alot of mine. My Local pet store had no idea what they were either.

I spay down one side of the tank to give them the option to move to there.
Mine seem to prefer a drier enviroment. I do however give them a shallow water dish.

I have stacked slate in mine, they seem to like it.

If I knew, I would tell you but I honestly have no idea. My friend that owns the store said they came in with a huge shipment of arachnids and they were labeled as emperor scorpions but that is obviously not it. he put them on sale for $15 so I grabbed a few since I have a feeling they may be worth more.

Damn these pet stores, they never seem to know jack s... about the animals they buy. Too bad. Like Cacoseraph, I also think of Iomachus sp....
That's about all you can say from the pics.

If you can send a pair to me, I can have Lorenzo identify them for you.
