i know these guys like it really dry but the dealer whom which i got these guys from said i should put a small water bowl in the enclosures, no wthat being said what can i use? i afraid that the humidity is going to killl the smeringurus mesaensis, the vaejovis is a bit more vigilant when it come to humidity please let me know what i should do tahnx :worship:

If they're from extremly dry areas keep a small water dish and fill it once a week/every 14days. That's what i do with my desert spp.

S. mesaensis do like very dry environments. I offer mine water about once a month. Most of the time though he stays burrowed underneath the waterdish. The ambient humidity in the tank of my S. mesaensis runs between 50-60% (as it is throughout my apartment) so I don't bother spraying his tank at all.

The Vaejovis would benefit from a waterdish at all times. I'm pretty sure they also prefer a sand/dirt or very dry soil combo....

I as well supply water about once a week in a cap from a soda bottle.

If you use a real human skull, it will really add to the look of the enclosure. I only say this because I did it in the past and people who saw it were quite taken aback by the overall effect. If real is too expensive($300), try http://www.boneclones.com/BC-107.htm

i found it in the bush wash it bleeched it and what not but it is too big for the enclosure, so i had to settle for the trippy skull. if i could get a mini skull then yes but as per now the kk are to small :worship: oh the human skull was in real bad shape missing part of the mandible and a chunk of the cranium but all else is good

there's a place about 30 minutes from me that sells fetal (however you spell it) skulls. they'd be small enough to fit in a tank. it'd be kinda creepy though.

the place is called The Bone Room and it's in Berkeley, California. you might want to do a search for them. they've got all kinds of cool bones that could be used in a tank.

i recommend stopping by there if you're ever in the Bay Area. it's a cool little store.

Great place!, they do have a very nice selection, mostly Chinese skulls though.
