Default Anyone work in an antivenein lab?

This will probably be the oddest request on the board, but there's a lot of people here, and I figure -why not?

As some of you know, I collect stamps, and if possible unusual covers (The envelopes or boxes for non-collectors) Odd markings, odd stamp uses etc.

One I've wanted for a few years now will require a bit of help.
The Postal regulations allow for the mailing of live scorpions, as long as they're mailed between one lab and another, and are clearly marked.

I really want one of those packages! I do NOT want a live scorpion, as I don't know how to care for them. And mailing one to me is probably illegal.
But if anyone works for a lab and could get the box from an incoming package without getting into trouble over it, that would be awesome.

I saw a funeral home director mailing a usps priority package - which was colored black - and noted Creamated Remains on the side. Didn’t know anything like that existed before.

Can't help you directly, but I would try reaching out to Jim Harrison and Kristen Wiley of the Kentucky Reptile Zoo. While they focus on the extraction of venom from reptiles for antivenin, they may at least be able to point you in the direction of someone for arachnids . Here's a link to their website contact page: Let me know if that gets you what you need.

Current Wantlist:
E93 - Cobb
E92 Nadja - Bescher, Bridwell, Cobb, Crawford, Donovan, Doolan, Doyle (with bat), Evers, Kleinow, Lobert, Mathewson, Tinker, Wagner (throwing), Zimmerman
W554 - Anyone with any red backstamp, Fonseca, Klein, Rommel
E/T Young Backrun - Need E90-1, E92 black Crofts Candy, E92 Dockman, E101, T216 (all versions)
E92 Red Crofts - Anyone especially Barry, Shean, and Evers
