    I bought 2 Heterometrus petersi (2nd instar) for my son's birthday tomorrow but sadly only one survived the journey. It's currently burrowing under the piece of wood.

    I doubt it as they were in the post for 9 days thanks to the wonderful British postal service although I have emailed the shop with a photo.

    I paid £6 each for them, that's $8.40 to you, so no not too expensive. I'll get my son another when I next order some containers, then they come by 24 hour courier..

    The one that survived the trip is doing really well and has eaten everything it has been offered. A replacement for the dead scorp is now with @LC72uk who will send it up to me in the next few days. My son has named them Tic and Tac.

    Some new pics of Tic

    Beautiful:) Scorplings are fantastic, they eat like Lps though, every species ive ever seen..especially buthids. My cyaneus seemed to be doing well and two more died mysteriously..scorpion slings seem rather more delicate and care intensive than spider slings...

    Thank you. My son has already had to remove the pieces of wood because they kept going mouldy even though they'd had boiling water poured over them then thoroughly dried.
    The replacement should be here tomorrow so I'll post pictures then.

    They're both doing well and like their food.

    Tic is the more visible and bolder of the 2

    Can you believe it @Enn49: my Pandinus imperator molted exactly at the same time as yours, and it's my first scorpion molting experience too!
