Got a pretty decent deal on a male flatrock with a 8 inch long plastic cage, 3 inches of moss, and a bark hideout for 18 bucks

he even likes being held Very Happy

people were all out of adult emp females Sad

You're lucky you've only gotta wait a month! Here in SoCal it looks like we're only gonna get one show in all of 2010.

But yeah, congrats on your new addition. Got any pics to show off?

once my camera charges
hes a little pansy, scared of everything, but he doesnt mind being held as much as you could say for a scorpion. might sell him off to a family member, but for now i'll enjoy him.

and for the past 2 hours, my subadult female has been digging tunnels in my 20g long. the male just sits and sleeps in her tunnels, which i find funny.

cant wait till next month's!

excuse the bad quality and redness, my infrared bulb is what keeps the scorps warm.

oh cool
he was willing to do just about anything to get rid of it
it was his only scorp at his display, and he offered 10 bucks for the "bug alone"
i asked for the cage with it, 20 bucks
i had 18 on me
he said deal
i was like Very Happy

I have a flatrock aswell and it hardly ever eats or moves from under his rock.

I wish they would do shows and exhibitions like that here in Northern Ireland. We never have anything like that.

well only a few people were selling them. one arachnid specialist, (she wasnt too kind in person), and a few snake guys with around 10-20 scorps, mostly cheap emps or desert hairys.

jan 16th is the next one Very Happy:D:D
