I would like to know, where can I get invertebrates (except tarantulas).Like scorpions, CENTIPEDES, MILLIPEDES, or even TRAPDOOR SPIDERS. (I'm in South-Africa)

Numerous places:
- Collect yourself
- Keep an eye on online classifieds
- Make contact with fellow invert keepers

Inverts are kept quite often, but because they are not as popular as reptiles, they are often exchanged instead of sold, so it's all about making the right contacts.

I guess it's a bit of a late reply, but I am also looking for some. I want to get my hands on an Emperor scorp because the pet shops around me don't stock them. I live in a wetter region so I get hundreds of centipedes. I found one by looking literally under the first rock I found. It was a 7cm long Red-Legged that I kept for a while but let go today. If you are keen, I am sure we can find a way to get you some?
