As much as I would like to go, I have no extra cash as rent has me by the Cajones this month. Sad too, cause I am one max stop away, not that my car could not make a 1\2 mile trip.

Ryan,
I just got back too. I bought a pair of Heterometrus sp. scorpions from tarantulas.com ( Alex and Dan). The male is about 8 inches ! I have never seen a scorpion this big !!! The female is gravid.

There was a small display right next to Alex and tarantulas.com.......... I do business with Dan and as soon as I came in the door he was like Dude get over there, and the boehemi was a nice price..... there were two but I sexed one as male so I just got the female.


Ps The female boehemi is for sale. :D

Lucky dude... I would jump for a boehemi sling or two, I like to start small with mine... But, I am moving in a couple of weeks so I am not allowed to get any more pets until I am settled in the new place. And, I'm supposed to be saving for a car-ishness automaton driving machine thingy.

I did get a Nhandu chromatus, Citharischius crawshayi, Holothele incei, and a Haplopelma schmidti (golden color phase). They are all slings, ranging from ultra-tiny to about the size of a quarter - sized in the order listed smallest to biggest. Mike (IHeartMantids) bought them for me. He also got me two sundews and himself a (hopefully) gravid Heterometrus sp.

I'm Spoiled! :} {D
