Legal Scorpio Issues

Postby jigglypuff » Sat Sep 18, 2010 3:45 pm

Hey Everyone

I have bought 2 species from a friend here in cape town.

The following:
Opistophthalmus Carimatus
Opistophthalmus Capensis

Now here's the real question.....Is keeping scorpions legal in cape town.....
When i bought them asked my bud and he said their legal, but i want to confirm as when i asked him again he didn't sound too sure and i don't want to get into trouble.

Thanks Everyone

It is said that when darkness falls all the beasts and ghouls come out to play.........i've only found my corns coming out to play.....

I think you were done in. My advice would be to return them and claim your money back.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

My uncle is a magistrate and keeps cameleons so it might just be a issue of who's playing the local policeman.
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”
