    Very happy with my rainforest scorpion. It was very well packed and has settled into its enclosure quickly and ate its first meal within 48hrs of arriving.

    Brought the rainforest scorpion for my sons birthday. He is very happy with it and loves looking at it under the UV light we also brought. He was half grown when we received him, so a good size. The service was great and i would happily deal with them again. Very helpful and responsive.

  6. Happy & Healthy

  7. The most amazing arachnid out there!!!

    This is my healthiest scorpion yet, the other moulted so it died but I used the guarantee to get another.I would recommend the use of a small container to see the scorpion and not loose it. I know that because, when I ordered one alone I lost it, so I would highly recommend a container 150mm long, 87mm wide an 100mm tall.

    Got my scorpion today, alive and well.

    Got it from QLD to SA in a day and a half - so great postage speed.

    Definitely would note that it isn't 60mm like i was expecting, it's probably about 15mm,

    Would buy from again.

  9. Awesome
