It all depends on if you have a DWA licence or not.

None of the major UK invert suppliers bother stocking Buthidae (the family that contains nearly all the medically significant species) as so few people have a licence to keep them legally, although a hell of a lot of people keep them without a licence. So, there are no medically significant i.e. seriously venemous species available in this country. Nearly all Buthidae that are kept in the UK will have been shipped or brought over from Germany/Europe.

So to answer your question, there aren't really any particularly venemous species available in the UK. Nebo spp. are probably the 'most venemous' species that you may come across that you can keep without a DWA here. If you find any though, let me know as they seem to be rarer than hens teeth lol.

I don't understand some of these laws sometimes. Here in BC, Canada, we have so many restrictions on snakes and lizards and need to have a CAS permit for some of them. When it comes to spiders and scorpions there is no regulations at all and you can pretty much get whatever you want.
