PostSubject: shipping scorps   6/7/2010, 2:44 am

i have quite a few V caralinianus scorpions (30 or so sub/adult plus a new brood just born yesterday). i am thinking of selling some but i really dont know how to pack them for shipping. they are a small species, averaging only a bit more than 1 inch total length. can anyone give me tips on how to pack these guys for shipping? i know i will need small vials like film cannisters but im unsure as what to put in there with the scorp. any info on packing the scorps in the vials to packing the vials in a box for shipping would be very helpful, thanks in advance

just watch some T shipping videos, and use what you've learned from those and make adjustments for scorpions.

that videos is crap. i think its funny when people don't really know how to do something, yet they think other can make videos on it.

thats how i pack mine - never had a death yet - once youve got them in like the video shows - put that in the shipping box - i usually pack that out with tissue too or use thos foam chips and place the packed scorp in the midddle - tape up the box and i put an airhole on each corner to be extra sure

sorry if i was kind of blunt, but this video didn't really teach any thing, it only shows how he personally does it not the best way to do it. so even though for T, this vid would be more beneficial.
