PostSubject: Just back from the BTS show   5/22/2011, 3:14 pm

hey guys.
as the title says... i'm just back from the show and i'm not impressed.
there was such a small amount of scorpions, the ones i did see, mainly emps, but there was a C. keyserlingi and by the time i bought that, i accidentaly bought 4 spiders lol ....... and 6 stick insects
the scorpions i did see, were all stuffed in small pots and were the same price as pet shop specimins..
anyway, what did you guys (peloquin and i think Callum B) buy?

nothing special that i noticed.. in the way of scorpions, it was a real shame, there was 1 mature flat rock scorpion, i wanted a scorpling Sad
i was pretty impressed with the number of spiders there though.. they reckon 30000+. i was happy with my 11 purchases though.. there was a reoccuring theme with 'that's more expensive than last year'
i will have to get some Euscorpius to breed, for a few years time.

Man it was waaay to crowded. I hate crowds lol. But yer the show itself was pretty awesome. If you are interested in Tarantulas I don't know how you would cope lol. So many species for sale. As for scorpions it was definately disappointing. I wouldn't have said there was more than around 10-12 species available and they were all the species currently available from online shops. I wanted to see something I had never seen before lol. Anyway enough whinging lol it wasn't all bad. I ended up coming back with 6 new scorpions lol.

nice.. what did you get callum?
did you see the emperor in the best scorpion competition.. it was actually a P. cav or a Het sp i swear.
i was happy with the spiders and sticks. the G. pulchra sling took a big cricket and the widow did too.
i was going to buy a Tailles whip scorpion, they were very expensive Sad

Anyway tomorrow we will have a chili rose T, a Regalis T, and 4 emps :)so will post pics when they arrive...

And many thanx to peloquin for putting himself out and offering to get us some stuff Smile

Show me Bex, please. I love arboreals! so fiesty, much more fun than terrestrials or pet holes. At least for me it is...

Always love the decorations too, I myself suck at designing them though.. that is why I need artistic input from people like yourself

G porteri and G. rosea are both Chile Rose but the rosea are the red colour form. Yours is the normal colour. The red tend to be a little bit more nervous/ bitey than the normal.

Yeah, that was Karen- Exotic Pets. The 2 morphs are interbreedable (But it's a BIG no-no) but are thought to be different species now.
They used to be...
G. spatulata (Normal) and
G. cala (Red),
They were changed to G. rosea (Both forms) for a while then changed to the ones we have now.

Bex, yours is a RCF. The red will get more apparent as it grows.
