Androctonus Bicolor
Hottentotta jayakari
Parabuthus transvaalicus

for looks alone.

Firstly, Parabuthus transvaalicus.. i've seen a few for sale here and there but at a nice whopping 50-80$. Not the most dangerous of the buthids but a very nice looking scorpion with good size.

Second. A. bicolor. i guess i have a thing for the brown/black scorpions with impressive metasoma.

I've come close to taking a chance,and ordering from accross seas.I just don't know if it would be worth the risk.I'd love to see and own all the species I listed.Its like Tityus Sp.Some of them are awesome looking,but alot of them are not in the U.S.

I don't think scorpion will survive 14 days its really a big risk specially of getting caught by the customs. What scorps are you planning to get ? there are a lot of under ground high end keeper here in the US. you just have to find them lol, this people don't usually sell stuff in the classfieds try posting what you want and someone that has that sp might pm you but be careful of scammers.

Personally I would LOVE to see Apistobuthus pterygocerus in the US trade. But out of the group I would have to say due to the P trans' "squirtgun" ability they are top of the list! Then A bicolor then H jayakari.

Personally again I would like to see T paraensis! Quite possibly the most wicked lookin Tityus with those super long chela.
