I cannot own a colony of M. mexicanus where I live, but I would still like to work with some of the species for display purposes. If you have a colony and would be willing to ship me some deceased repletes in relatively good condition I would be more than happy to negotiate a reasonable price and pay for shipping. I realize they may not be plump and full by arrival; I am prepared to deal with that.
Please feel free to drop me a line and thank you for reading!
(and thank you to the folk in chat for tips and helping me figure this out )
