hey scorpion peps. saw a juvie emp at my local swallow aquatics last week for sale at 20. i was going to buy one for 10 today, whilst i was in Birmingham, but it got sold Sad
does anybody think this is a ridiculous price to pay, at a shop? or is this a good price to pay? once again, it is a shop mind.
thanks
tom

Go a show. Adults dont cost 20 quid. You might even get a breeding pair/ trio for 20.

is there any shows coming up in the uk then?
i really want it, im 15 and have money, that is burning a rather large hole in my pocket lol.
i think it's still worth getting.... i almost got one for 10 yesterday,as i was saying.. but it got sold Sad
i've a tank laid aside for it, if i don't fill it, it will end up with fish in it lol

Is there anyone from your neck of the woods going the BTS? Maybe you could hitch a lift?

lol, a h4eat pack is a small packet that gets warm. You put it in the box with the packing and it adds background heat inside the box to make it more comfortable for the animal.

The last time I saw scorpions in my local swallows they were kept under constant black light Shocked

Heat packs are sort of like tea bags with something that retains heat inside.

Here in the US I bought 1 Emp. for $8 and so did I for the next 3. 8 Bucks translates over to about 5.37. So I suppose then no, it's not a fair price but I'd probably end up buying him anyways because I doubt the pet shop will treat him correctly.
