    I just sent her a message to see if she is comfortable with that, we'll see if she responds.

    Since this was for a university project I'm sure there are special permit that allowed him to receive the animals. I work in a lab that has a lot of exotic plant pathogens that would normally get you a fine if you were just Joe Public shipping them.

    Too bad this isn't 7yrs earlier. I would've made that drive from Tuscola county for some. If there are any left over and she can ship I am interested as well.

    I did bring the shipping up to her and she said she'd ask her boss if it's okay, if so then she wouldn't mind shipping to someone like drapion for them to be distributed.

    I talked with her yesterday and she said she's totally for shipping them to drapion for him to distribute as long as he pays for shipping, she just needs to double check with her advisors. Half of them still need to be milked but she would be fine with shipping them all to someone as long as she gets the OK to do so. She said that they have been breeding like crazy but eat the babies. She also has some Hadrurus arizonensis left and would let me know if they haven't been picked up in a few weeks, those I wouldn't mind taking and sending off to people since there are 5 or 6 left.

    The cage conditions are under whelming, my scorp was just sitting in a dish with gel crystals looking pretty pathetic since she only has a pvc pipe to hide under. Since these animals are basically there to be fed to these grass hopper mice, I get why the cages aren't much but I do feel sad for them.

    They need fresh water, that gel product does not work.

    As soon as I got her I threw them out and put water in there. She'll be in a new cage by the end of today so hopefully she'll perk up some more.

    Any updates?
    I'm down to one male scorpion : (
    I purchased them as adults about two years ago, so not sure on their age.
    Do you the life span of a bark scorpion?

    I'll take 100 of them. Please send Priority Overnight and send a few hundred feeder crickets. Throw in a 20 galllon tall terrarium too. Thanks.

    Life span depends on species. But Centruroides live from 2-3 years. Sometimes you get one that will last a little longer but its rare.

    You got it Erik, there on their way. I also set it up with LLLreptile that every 2 weeks you will get 200 3 week old crickets and starting in a month 400 pinheads delivered weekly.
