I purchased a female Dune Scorpion from Tom for $5 plus $20 shipping. Tom was extremely helpful in making sure that I received the smallest female sub-adult that he had, a special request that I made! Checkout was easy and Tom notified me as soon as he had shipped the packages. Tom also let me know that he would also be shipping a freebie juvenile female scorpion for free in the package (Thanks Tom that was so kind)! When the scorpions arrived, they were well wrapped with air mailers, newspaper, and a styro-foam box to protect them from the cold. Each scorpion came in a small sauce cup (like you would find in a restaurant) with extra paper towel padding the sides for them. Both were alive and looked extremely healthy! 100% please purchase from Tom, he is a remarkable seller and cares about the customer and the animals that he sells!
