Saint George killed the last dragon, and he was called a hero for it. I've never seen a dragon, and I wish he would have left at least one. Saint Patrick made a name for himself by running the snakes out of Ireland, leaving the place vulnerable to rodent infestation. This business of making saints out of men who exterminate their fellow creatures has got to stop. All I'm saying is, it's starting to get a little lonely up here at the top of the food chain.

Personally I'd just go and collect some UK species since the tropical ones are nothing special and not all that different from the uber common Trichoniscus pusillus, which you can find all over the country (except that the tropical ones are white and these a pink, but they are about the same size and appreciate wet conditions).

I was going to suggest the same, and if you're worried about pesticides etc... just wait for them to breed, it won't take long and the second generation should be free of anything the first may have carried.
