Hey all.... Im sure this has been talked about , but all I can find around the local pet shops are emperor scorpions
. Not that there is something wrong with them....I had a couple a few years ago. But I want something more exotic... I want a parabuthus transvaalicus

So, two questions...how do most scorpions handle a little trip via ups.... and secondly, who would you recomend purchasing them from online ? Im in Dallas, Texas

most do fine. most websites wont send unless the weather conditions are right and most have live arrival garentee. if you order online try tarantulainc.com or kenthebugguy.com. both have great selections.

Yeah, definitely KTBG.
I've ordered from him quite a few times, his packing is great and he has awesome inverts.
I've been thinking about ordering from T inc, They have quite a few species, and $15 express!
I just need money. lol

Check the classifieds and the buyer / seller / dealer review section.

Also, I wouldn't really recommend going straight from emps "a couple years back" up to P. transvaalicus.

...no. I dont think so. Not a good idea.

But as you have already done it, exert real caution. Tongs all the way
