Hey all,

I've owned Emperors for quite a while now, unfortunately the male of the pair died a little while back and I've been desperately looking for a replacement as I feel my remaining scorp may be getting lonely :'(

I'm finding it really hard to track one down (presumably because of this import ban I was reading of) so was wondering if anyone knew of any breeders or anywhere that I might be able to try. Particularly if that's in the London area and/or are capable of sexing them and/or have them older than juvenile.

Maybe my little buddy is screwed but I thought here would be a good place to give it another try....any leads greatly appreciated!!

Cheers

Hello,

sorry for such a late reply. From disposable pet prices to rarer than hens teeth in just a few years!!

Obviously keep an eye out on the main UK online suppliers, thespidershop and bugzuk. If you have facebook, then you should join as many sales groups as you can. For a start there's Inverts For Sale UK. ReptileForumsUK has a classifieds section that can be worth keeping an eye on.

You'll probably have better luck sourcing them from Germany/rest of Europe as scorpion keeping and breeding is much more popular there. http://www.terraristik.com is a classifieds site that lots of breeders use. Again, facebook, you could join the German ''Skorpione BIETE/SUCHE'' group. There's also a number of European breeders who have their own websites; http://buthidae.ch/, http://buthidae.eu/, http://www.polyped.de/, there's others but I can't remember their web address. Finally there's a couple of forums with good classifieds sections http://www.skorpione.de/forum/viewforum.php?f=8&sid=ad1206daac85396e9afc277f495d9f0e and https://www.skorpionforum.com/forum/33-biete-nachzucht/?s=75d72643ddc1f65b3d33d7cb28727e52246aa6e9.

Lastly, you're in the South East so you could pay a visit to the SEAS Invert Show at the end of the month http://www.invicta-arachnid-club.co.uk/index.php?slab=s.e.a.s.

This species is being bred in captivity, just shamefully few compared to how many 1000's were imported and sold for pennies before, eventually I think you'll find some, but they may end up being juveniles.

Apologies also for the late reply...I didn't notice the notification email for a while.

This is great information and very much appreciated. I started looking through a few of the links and haven't found anything yet but these are definitely the sort of leads I was after and will keep hunting.

Thanks very much for taking the time to write such a great response Smile

No problem. Bare in mind that it's winter, so a lot of people, in particular Europeans, won't be advertising what they have for sale because shipping is too risky in cold temperatures. You'll start to see a lot more lists appearing on the classifieds etc. as the weather warms up in spring.

Good luck searching!
