Default My Scorpion Collection

It's been 7 years since I've kept my last pair of emperor scorpions, so I thought I might as well grab some new scorps while I'm keeping Ts. I'll be getting my Malaysian forest scorpion (Heterometrus. spinifer) on Tuesday and a rusty thick tail (Babycurus. jacksoni) next month. From what I know MFS/AFS are very similar to emperors, but they're slightly more aggressive. What I have to be cautious about is the thick tail. One hit by that sucker and I'm going to be in a hell of ride for atleast 2 days. I'll keep you guys updated, until Tuesday.

Alright guys, got a small update. Due to the still going on winter weather here, CanadaPost has been delaying deliveries. So I'll actually have my new Malaysian forest scorpion shipped to me next Tuesday. I'll keep you guys updated.

Yeah, all my Ts and have been shipped to me via CanadaPost Xpresspost. TarantulaCanada labels the package to be signature required, so it's always delivered to me by a CanadaPost personnel. I've only had issues with non-signature required packages, especially with the current "winter" weather.

Well yes, technically, but since winter weather warnings are still in affect one would say "winter" lol. Still got piles of snow here, still wondering when it'll melt away.
The weather has been very odd this year, I'm expecting summer to last until late October haha.

DOA, very sad. First DOA I've ever had in my life, the tarantulas survived the trip though. Right now I'm just working a few things out to get a replacement scorps.
