PostSubject: Need something new...   2/19/2008, 6:35 pm

A friend of mine is going to the reptile show in PA this weekend and asked if I needed her to get me anything. I do NOT have any money to spend on this but I plan to get just enough together to buy a few things. I'm pretty sure I want a whipscorpion and maybe some rainbow pedes but I also want another scorpion. I already have 3 emps, 1 redclaw, and 1 olive-keeled flat rock but I might want something less... pet hole-ish. I've narrowed it down to a few holes and some others but want some suggestions.

H longimanus (pet hole but so awesome!)
Breeding pair/trio of C hentzi (cute and I want to try raising babies)
Androctonus sp. (venomous as anything but I hear less of a pet hole)
M martensii (cool little communal guys)
Parabuthus sp. (venomous as anything, less pet hole)

Any input on any of those? So far I've never been stung or bitten by anything, not to brag just saying I know how to be careful so I'm not too intimidated by venom levels. I'm still scared of LQs but in a few months I might be ready for one. Feel free to recommend things not on the list just keep in mind I don't have much to spend.

Oh will anyone from here be selling there? I trust you guys more than random stands for good deals and accurate ID's.

So venomous but so much more appealing... Okay maybe forget everything else this will probably be an all scorpion purchase.

Thanks abyss, I was mostly looking for people at the show to save on shipping but I'm hardcore thinking about buying a nice little communal group from you. Maybe some M Martensiis if you find a nice breakup of males and females next time you're out.

Lol I guess I misread a bit. lol! They're a cute little scorpion and communal so I figure they'd be a good species to try my hand at breeding. Also my brother is looking to get me a birthday present so I'll have a bit more money to spend. What's their gestation like? I'd prefer shorter than forest scorpions, my emps are annoying me lol. I got so off-topic but this is my thread so oh well.

Anyone know if I could expect to see a parabuthus out much? I really like the way the transvaalicus looks so I'm starting to lean towards them... I really don't want another pet hole unless it's something really cool (like H longimanus).
