i think that i should be able to sell them to the public [the mentally stable public] without a licence or permit because they are not in the buthid family and there sting only equals that of a hornet so they are not very dangerous

I don't think you will -- it's nothing like the laws over here about stick insects. To the best of my knowledge the only regulated scorpions are Buthids, and you wouldn't be able to sell them without first having a license to own them. So, if it's something you bought legally, you should be able to sell it legally.

ive seen emps being sold on the internet on freeads! so whats a H. Spinifer.
The only reason I dont want to sell mine to a shop...is that I dont know who would buy them *also would the correct care be given* as I worry about them being used for arachnid sport
But i imagine too that any not under the buthid family could be sold private sale

which reminds me I so want a cavimanus

Yeah, some stores only take them from the importers. Evil or Very Mad The point of captive breeding is so they won't need to!

(At least the local place up the street takes in peoples' scorpion babies Very Happy)

Dunno about that, I never asked. They said they'd be willing to buy AGB babies from me, though. (Then I never had babies.) But my local petstore is your 6000-miles-away pet store.

BAD, SCORPION111, BAD!!!! Evil or Very Mad
Yellow pages not such a good idea. We have a classified section here and on other forums similiar to this one. You want to find people that will actually take care of the scorp.

i was originalaly going to give them to another pet store a big one,but when i got there i saw TERRIBLE things. in their tropical fish tanks half the fish were unhealthy, (and some were dead too) and they had a couple of emps in tanks at the back of the shop, and they had em in sand for substrate,which as you all know,emps hate sand. so now way. but the woman i know breeds reptiles and inverts so she knows how too look after them properly Very Happy

if the shop sell a gravid scorpion I think they should take back or buy the babies back. When I bought my male and female I didnt want babies! And then POW! babies after 6 months or so *rolls eyes*
But no shop for my little ones.

Im glad you have managed to find someone who will take care of them, but you have a while to go yet. I know they can go during 2nd instar as long as they are feeding but the "mother" in me makes me think 3rd instar is best
