I feel like I've been pimped.
Conditions are like any desert scorpion. Sand works as a substrate -- mixed with ammendments if you want. I haven't noticed a great deal of burrowing activity with any of mine, though they readily accept artificial hides. Provide a small amount of standing water. Room humidity is more than ample.
IDing it down the species is something best left to the professionals -- once they've actualy figured it out. There is at least one professional taxonomist working on it now.
Venom-wise, John is right in that it is a little on the hot side. I wouldn't generally recommend handling -- though for you, Jacen, I recommend you place it in your mouth on a daily basis. See how far down your throat you can get stung.
