    Picked up 4 beautiful Juvenile Emperor Scorpions today,
    sorry the pictures are not as clear as I would have liked.

    Also picked up a new baby corn snake, Pet smart said they couldn't get it to eat, been trying for 2 weeks grrrr
    I brought it home and fed it 2 newborns , I didn't have any issue with it taking both.
    I will get a picture of it when she digests a little, I dont want to upset it right now.
    Its an Amelanastic,(sp) not sure if its a fire corn, you know how pet stores are about proper identifications

    I dont do the ones that can make someone very ill. These will only make someone react if they are allergic to bee venom.
    I am alergic to bees so have to be very carefull handling these guys when they get a bit bigger.
    My Oldest Daughter found out I got them today and is already begging for one of the babys LOL.

    Cool scorpions.

    If you post a pic of your corn snake showing clearly from the top and also a clear belly shot I can tell you if it's a fire or not. I doubt it though, bloodred amels (fires) are few and far between, especially at petsmarts [​IMG]

    No one near that I know of has Arachnids for pets... [​IMG]
    So we are safe from ended up with any.
    We came very very close to bringing home a designer snake from the only chicken swap we went to. If my fish tanks had made the move we would have.
    Looking forward to the pictures of your new one.
