Buying crabs from reptilesplus.co.uk?

Post by squid » Mon Feb 18, 2019 9:25 am

Hi everyone,
I’ve prepared a tank for some PPs now, and am ready to order them. Was just wondering if anyone had experience with reptiles plus, or has any better alternatives for buying crabs in the UK?
Thanks

I would not order crabs online if the temperatures in your area are below 50, it is generally not recommended to ship crabs during the hot summer, or the cold winter, it can easily kill them!

They use a same day specialist animal courier, so hopefully that won’t be an issue for a 3hr journey? Only reason I’m not going to the shop myself is that my family doesn’t have a car (I know it will be pricey but I never thought crabs would be cheap)

Animal sales and shipments in the UK is a lot different than in the US!

Maybe try looking on RFUK or FaunaClassifieds for reviews.
