Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986

News updates - April 7th, 2014:

Group shipment to Vancouver, BC this week and next week as well! Any one interested in fast, safe, reliable and inexpensive shipping to the lower mainland, please let us know! Also, anyone planning on picking up animals at the BCRC reptile show May 3rd and 4th, please let us know now! There are 3 expos that same weekend and I will personally not be there, so inventory will be very limited at this expo as well as the Downsview expo in Toronto! :D The "Other Invertebrates" list has now been updated as well as a small update to the "Tarantulas & Other Spiders" list! :D Also, very excited to announce we will be attending the Calgary Pet Expo on April 26th & 27th (details on venue below)!!! Hope to see you all there! This will be a HUGE event, our largest yet!!

New photos have been added to several of the spiders and even one of the centipedes and a watermark has been introduced! Looking for some feedback on this watermark before adding it to all of the photos! :D Haitian Goliath Ruby Red Centipedes (Scolopendra sp.) have been ordered!! Another Arachnophiliacs exclusive, this species can reach over 16" in length and nearly 2" in body width, making it even larger than gigantea or galapagoensis!! Take a look at our Facebook page to see pictures of a "small" one being handled (about 10")!! If you are a big fan of giant centipedes, this monster is a must-have! Reservations are still being taken for this upcoming order and preorders receive a $50 discount!

We have several aubadult/adult Peruvian Giant Pink Toes (Avicularia urticans available! We haven't had the true urticans in quite some time and it is really a treat to have CB adults!!

Arachnophiliacs has expanded!! It's been a long time in coming, but we now have a second location! Unfortunately, due to the malevolent activities of one particular group of individuals, we are not yet making any announcements as to the location. Suffice it to say it is an excellent facility for housing a substantial selection of invertebrates and we are already serving customers from that location :D There will be no changes to the way in which appointments are scheduled. When you schedule a pickup or viewing, we will simply direct you to the appropriate location.

The Brazilian Black Bromeliad Spiders (Pachistopelma rufonigrum) are now all gone!! Congratulations to those who snapped them up quickly: We'll be looking forward to some babies in the not-too-distant future! :D

The Rameshwaram Ornamentals (Poecilotheria hanumavilasumica) however, are still around and there are still quite a few left! These are rapidly growing and are now 1" - 1½" and priced at $110 or 5/$500. These Indian rarities haven't been around very long and the prices have been slowly becoming more affordable, but this offer is still the best one around! Get `em while you can!

We also have a new batch of Gooty Sapphire Ornamentals (Poecilotheria metallica! These are now 1¼"+ in legspan and priced to go fast at $110. each! :D

More reptile list updates! The Boas are nearly all gone and there are only three Salmon Boas left! I had some of these available a couple years back and they were excellent snakes, quite healthy and very handleable. Photos are posted here of the parents as well as two of the available offspring.

Due to the relatively small numbers remaining, the Bonnetina sp. "Guerrero" are now only available to those with a breeding interest (pairs currently available). The Schizopelma sp. "Colima" are temporarily unavailable while they are being sexed. Sorry collectors!

Want to get sneak peeks, special offers and who knows what else? Join our mailing list by emailing us with "mealworm" as the subject! I do apologise for the latency of this mailing list, but due to many unforeseen events since last spring, it has become a bit of a low priority!

Upcoming Expos:
Unfortunately, there has been some trouble with fixing dates for the Ontario Reptile Expos, so be sure to check here frequently or call/email me to confirm! We are currently looking to rent a room in Calgary for one week from Friday, April 25th. Anyone in the area with a spider-friendly space for rent, please let us know! :D We are also looking for one volunteer for the BCRC Spring Reptile Show in Abbottsford May 3rd and 4th. Anyone interested in this event, please us know soon :)
