Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986



News updates - May 13th, 2015:

All pages updated! A few changes to the Tarantulas and Other Spiders list, but several changes to the Scorpions, Other Invertebrates and Reptiles lists and even a freshening up of the Miscellaneous Goods and Terms pages! Victoria expo was an interesting one and it was nice to get out to the island and meet an entirely different crowd! Now on to Edmonton!! We've got a few last minute arrivals to bring to the show! Please let us know well in advance if you would like to reserve animals as we will be packing up to leave Wednesday and Thursday! Also booked the CRBE for September 19-20 and this should be our most exciting CRBE yet!

Still plenty of Trapdoor spiders (Ctenizidae), along with Silver Tunnel Web Spiders (Cyphonisia sp.). These are all females and have been in captivity over 2 years! A few new tarantulas as well including Martinique Treespiders (Avicularia versicolor), Singapore Blues (Lampropelma violaceopes) and Columbian Pumpkin Patches (Hapalopus sp. Columbia). Please be aware that the Schizopelma sp. "Colima" are now on hold and there is only one pair of Bonnetina sp. "Guerrero" left, so get it while you can!! For those of you who already have a female, we've also got a spare male. South African Yellow Collars (Harpactira pulchripes) have sold out again as well as Socotran Blue and Yellow Leg Baboons (Monocentropus balfouri). Should have some more balfouri on the way soon, but it may be a little while yet for our pulchripes :(

Several scorpions have run out and others are running low! If you are looking for scorpions for Edmonton, please keep in mind that only LT imports and CB are allowed at the expo, so if it is labelled "ST" or "MT" you will need to order ahead or we won't be bringing it! Jericho Chocolates (Nebo hierochonticus) are already breeding, but these guys can have a VERY long gestation period, so this could take a while!

More mantids have arrived, and Tanzanian Tailess Whipscorpions (Damon diadema) are back, but few in number this time and we have a little Euphrynichus bacillifer group on the way! Looking forward to working with this species and bringing more into the hobby! We're sold out of the Haitian Goliath Ruby Red Centipedes (Scolopendra sp. Hispaniola), but take a look at this photo of one being handled on our Facebook page! Look around and you'll find a few more ;)

More Box Turtles (Terrapene carolina and Terrapene ornata) have been added to the list as well as Diamondback Terrapins (Malaclemmys terrapin) and an Asian Giant Leaf Terrapin (Heosemys grandis). Hermann's Tortoises (Testudo hermanni) are back again, along with their closest cousins, Greek Tortoises (Testudo graeca)! We've also got some premium Leopard Geckoes (Eublepharis macularius), including Tangerine Tornadoes and White and Yellows! Amazon Milk Frogs are doing fantastic and ready for pickup as well as shipping. These are now on special at 3/$100 for those of you who are watching the news updates! :D Also arriving are African Giant Bullfrogs (Pyxicephalus adspersus). Also known as Pyxie Frogs, these massive amphibians resemble green cow patties!

Warning: Please be aware that a certain individual has decided to reserve the domain name "Arachnophiliacs.ca" in an effort to confuse our customers! Typing in this address will no longer take you to their website, but to Google instead, so it seems spreading the word has had some impact. Don't be fooled.. We are still very much in business!
