I have been thinking of trying to do an appearance and disappearance of a couple of small animals. Would a topit work, or would it hurt the animal I use? I am thinking of using a scorpion, tarantula and possibly butterflies which are very fragile animals. If a topit wouldn't work, can anyone suggest another method?

Any comments are more than welcome.

A topit will work, but if they live, they'll crawl out.

Both scorpions and tarantulas are fragile creatures that are not accustomed to being tossed around. Both are comfortable climbing up and into "things." Both are also pretty capable of clinging onto jackets.

HOWEVER, they will be provoked by sleight of hand. They will bite or sting when cornered. They are NOT domesticated animals.

Butterflies are also fragile, though can be controlled and handled when the temperature goes down. They will not survive much direct handling.

You might be safer swapping the live creatures with rubber replicas. This way you can do anything with the replicas and keep the live ones alive. all the coins I've dropped here

Tossing in a topit a breathing human being? Are you kidding??? What about trying to make them slide in your card to wallet???
