    If you can send me a pic of an example of your packing, I would like to acquire the GBB based on that. Not trying to be difficult but the tarantulas safety is of the utmost importance to me. I hope you understand. Please and thank you. :) I can pay promptly afterwards.

    Hello again Albert,
    Just wondering if you ever heard back from the other person that was interested in your lp? I am talking with several lp owners about purchasing one and if I can lock one in that would be great. If it's gone that's cool, any info would be great.
    Thanks,
    killapriest187

    I won't be able to ship any of the animals until Tuesday, March 14th. But yea, I describe my packaging and then post a picture later on if you want. The animal will be put in a plastic deli cup (air holes) with a very slightly moist paper towel (still looks dry). That will go into an 8" x 8" x 8" box with a double layer of large-type bubble wrap (no excess space to shake around).

    Thank you. Yes, please post pics. I get an idea of how you pack but pictures do better justice. You use a thick layer of paper towel inside the deli cup, right?

    Yea exactly. I'm still not back at university (spring break) but once I get back I'll make a faux package with pics. I don't leave empty space in the tupperware so the T won't jiggle around but won't be crushed, and I don't leave empty space in the box so the Tupperware can't shake around either. the tupperware is also centered in the box.

    And like I said there won't be any empty space. The bubblewrap will be tight against the deli cup

    Don't judge me people. LOL

    Here is a packing pictorial thread I made for ATS, around 10 years ago, when I was a drunken buffoon more than likely. So if there is anything out of the ordinary, that is most likely why. ;)

    Hope this helps you Albert.
    If the versi, or GBB is still available, let me know.

    ****FYI****
    Do NOT use hand warmers!

    Dont worry, no handwarmers will be used. The versi is taken, but the GBB might be available. Depends on whether or not Casey K wants it.

    paypal, venmo, or just mailing cash if you're comfortable with that. PM me the shipping address, shipping will probably be around 15$. I'll send a tracking number as well. However a massive cold front just came into the northeast US, so I don't think I'll be able to ship until next week.

    That's fine with me. Tarantulas safety is #1 priority. I am sending you a private message now for further details. Thank you.
