Pet shops rarely carry anything more exotic than emps or the occasional mis-IDed Heterometrus. If you want to pick up Androctonus spp. you're going to have to do it through classifieds on sites like this or by going to shows.

Around here you have top drive like 6 hours to get to a pet shop like that and it's not even certain they will do it.

Why are they illegal there? Is it to keep that species from invading or somethin?
