Got contact from both parties. I've been told the Opuntia will be resent the next time the donor visits the parent's house.
BensBeasts says he will pay shipping (and requests the bugs to be shipped) in a few weeks . . . I replied saying: "Please give me a date when you will send shipping payment and when you would like them shipped."
Hopefully this can get moving soon.
Haven't heard from BensBeasts and no shipping payment has arrived. I'm about to sell off all my isopod colonies and I've told BensBeasts that they only have the first week or two of August to get back to me. Ive sent several messages trying to get the "auction win" to it's owner, but they need to help me out to make the next step happen. I've been trying but they are about to be out of luck.
