Well hello guys, I see things have remained somewhat similar with most of us now residing on the Facebook groups.

Few items / points since the last time I ran through here.

For starters, how is everyone doing?
Any new additions?  Any new hobbyists poking around the forum?  feel free to say hello!

On to me:
I acquired roughly 17 scorpion species however traded almost all non-Pandinus Imperator off with a few reptile breeders i know and ended up with a rather large number of Panther Chameleons Razz.

Have laid dormant for a while but I have returned and will steadily rebuild the collection to a far more impressive size over the coming months (Spring will likely offer more specimens in the market due to colder weather here in the UK atm).

As of right now I have a few species:
H.Minusalta x 1 - 0.1.0
L.Haenggi x 2 - 1.1.0
P.Imperator x 6 - 2.4.0

I have a rather large amount of reptiles to shift currently, however they're slowly leaving me which means a big fund for the scorpion racks and vivs.  
Was wondering if anyone had any contacts other than the two I have at present:
http://buthiden.de.tl/Versand-_-Shipping.htm - Mr Stockmann
and Giorgio Molisani

That would be selling a large number / variety of species.  Specifically Opistophthalmus species.  
However I'm interested in many things you may have excess of (Including the duller Heterometrus sp!).
Please be aware I'm mainly interested in getting several 3-4 of each species + ideally a few species or more at a time so larger quantities ideally.

With all this being said I should have a good box breaking video from my bulk order with Mark Stockmann over the coming month for you, just waiting for warmer months and a few more broods to come along.  
If any of you happen to have any video tours of your Scorpion Room/Racks feel free to indulge, I don't think I can stand to see another photo of Heterometrus Longimanus/Laoticus/Cyaneus/Spinifer asking whether or not a person is in ownership of an "Emperor" haha, so feel free to show off your nicer looking / more exciting species.

I'll end this post here and return to drilling air holes in plastic tubs! Razz

Crawling back in here.........haha.

Alex Ullrich (FB, he's on most groups and is likely to offer interesting stuff this year), terraristik.com (classifieds), skorpion biete/suche (FB), scorpion.community (forum with classifieds), skorpione.de (forum with classifieds), but no one is realistically going to be shipping until March at the very earliest.

If you want unusual Opistophthalmus spp. your best bet would be to book yourself a ticket to South Africa or Namibia and collected some yourself haha. In the past year or so there's some interesting species that have come into the hobby, but the few young of these that have been available have been very very expensive. For a decent group, flights to Cape Town expensive.

Get a soldering iron to put holes in tubs. Stinks a bit, but I find it a much faster method than using a drill. You can wedge pins, paper clips, nails etc. in the end depending on the size of the holes you need and it doesn't crack the plastic like drilling can do.

I have looked over Terraristik.com however most appear to be only Pre-orders for HAMM and I'm unsure how "legitimate" people are. Got one guy selling 300 emperor scorpions and it's a bit of a "no from me" scenario ha.

I do see some good prices there however, just seems to come with a risk of losing out since a lot of these people are completely unknown. The trips out to these locations are very tempting indeed, just depends how much time I get to treck around and dig up with a blacklight haha.

I have potentially two large bulk purchases from two contacts lined up, however I'm looking into competing prices from others. Right now it seems Buthids are easier to get than our regular ordinary scorps. since TSS over-charges for their specimens.

I should probably invest in a soldering iron you're right, the drilling is immensely time consuming, though I buy quite strong lunch box style clear plastic, so I don't have the issues with cracking.
