I'd be concerned about the legality of shipping inverts overseas as well as the risk of it getting stuck in customs for a few weeks.

personally I wouldn't risk it. If you look hard enough there is a fantastic variety of scorpions in the trade here in the UK.

you need to get yourself to shows... all the unusual stuff turns up there.

the BTS shows are coming up, there's one coming up in kettering 19th april and the BTS expo (which is the crufts of the arachnid world) is in may in wolverhampton.

there's also 2 newark shows one early summer and one in december.

last year there was one in leeds that was pretty good, but check your local listings, like leeds there are a few smaller shows that dot the country, more in the south than up here in the north.

I might actually go to one of these upcoming shows, it would be really cool... surely there must be alot of cheap stuff, and you don't have to pay for shipping or that Very Happy

yeah they are pretty cheap. certainly around internet prices anyway rather than shop prices.

we get most of our specimens from shows. but you really do need to get there early to snap up the really unusual stuff. but save some cash for the end because you can get some right last minute bargains.
