Hi,

I'm looking into posting some of my collection i have for sale.. just read the sticky so i think i can do the tarantulas as its tissue packed into a suitably sized container.. seems straight forward.

However, i was wondering if its the same for posting millipedes .. giant african and olives .. or do you use substrate ?

Thank You
Kat

When I had mine delivered it was just in a cricket tub with a lot of moss to hold onto so it didn't bump around. I'm not sure if that's how others post them or just the one I got. You might want to wait for some other responses.
