No worries.

One other thing, If you plan to post the specimen - remove it from the alcohol.

I cannot advise on the regulations between EU countries, but I think that they are similar or the same to the UK in that specimens cannot be posted in Et.OH (i.e. in tubs).

The best method I have seen is to remove the specimen from the jar, drain it slightly and then double bag it using zip-lock bags. This is for 3 reasons - it stops the specimen drying out in transit, it also stops the alcohol fluid damaging the specimen as it slooshes about and lastly it complies with the ban on shipping explosive solvents (!). rolleyes.gif

If I can remember, there is a good contact for shipping advice of fluid specimens but I can't recall whom just now. Suffice to say, posting can be a hassle.

Of course, since posting living tarantulas is illegal too apparently and we all do it, I have no idea how many people post fluid specimens in a similar manner (I can't condone or suggest this, but if one does, I'd still zip lock it without the ET.OH).
