Advertisement I don't really know how to start this so to save time I'll give point form info to my question. Question: When selling tarantulas does it make sense to have a buyer sign a waiver before buying tarantulas from you? Reason: Some tarantulas have reasonably strong venom and although noone has died it does not mean that noone will. New world species also have urticating hairs that can damaged eyes and if breathed in cause issues (those of which I'm unqualified/ignorant to). I am under the impression that someone could sue sue you for damages in these cases if they really wanted to and a waiver would allow a 'legal pass' so to speak. Further question(s): 1. Will it need to be notarized to be recognized by law 2. If selling where these types of animals are prohibited should I also make them sign to say they do not live in this region and are just purchasing here (because word of mouth doesn't hold up in court) 3. I want to eventually breed scorpions (I love trading for species and I am really getting into scorpions, specifically buthidae so I am looking to trade scorplings/ sell and use the money for other species, before people pop in, this has already been discussed I don't want to breed them for cash I want to to trade and get more species without destroying my bank account). So with this said, being "hots" that I am into is this a good idea. 4. How would this work for shipping? I was having them fax a copy of their signed waiver to me. NOTE* This is just an idea for me that I believed would be good and save myself from legal issues. If it is flat out brainless and moronic please say so I don't end up making waivers down the road (when some of my specimens are grown up) just to have waisted my time, my effort, the buyers patience, and paper (trees die for this and so I don't take it lightly).
