Hi. I caught this scorpion spider. Still alive just a few minutes ago. I would like to know if you want it for examination?
Otherwise I will just throw him outside in the garden.

Scorpion Spider

Dear Cilliers,
Thank you for your generous offer, but we don’t accept specimens.  Shipping living creatures to remote locations may lead to the introduction of invasive, exotic species into an ecosystem that will not have natural predators to control numbers, potentially creating environmental threats.  This Scorpion Spider is better suited to being released into your garden.
