Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986

News updates - March 20th, 2015:

All lists updated! Next expo is Toronto on the 4th - 6th of April, but we will be doing this expo differently and bringing a MUCH smaller selection than usual, so let us know well in advance if you have any specific requests! Some great new spiders this time as well as CB Tailess Whipscorpions and another species of Vinegarone from Thailand (Typopeltis crucifer, also CB)! Also, Amazon Milk Frogs are back and ready for pickup (shipping in about 3 weeks). Fixed a couple of image links and added a direct link to one of the Goliath Ruby Red Centipede (Scolopendra sp. Hispaniola) photos on our Facebook page! Look around and you'll find a few more ;)

Quick reptile list update as the larger Hermann's tortoise hatchlings are ready and CA Wood turtles are back, but Florida Box Turtles have sold out! Photos have finally been added to most of the tortoises and box turtles! This still needs to be done for the tarantula and scorpion lists, but that is a MUCH larger project! Things have been crazy busy around here and a lot has come and gone!

Warning: Please be aware that a certain individual has decided to reserve the domain name "Arachnophiliacs.ca" in an effort to confuse our customers! Don't be fooled.. We are not in any way connected to this sham!

Lots of new animals (unfortunately, some went before they made it to the list!) and some pretty exciting breedings going on! Highlights include Goliath Ruby Red Centipedes (Scolopendra sp. Hispaniola), Malaysian Cherry Red centipedes (Scolopendra subspinipes dehaani), Hermann's tortoises (Testudo hermanni) and Amazon Milk Frogs (Trachycephalus resinifictrix). All are now ready and we have a beautiful little Indian Star Tortoise (Geochelone elegans) here as well!! Although this little beauty was not produced by us, we are very excited to have this species once again :D

South African Yellow Collared Baboons (Harpactira pulchripes) are nearly out, but another eggsac is on the way!! Many other species are soon to follow, including the Bonnetina sp. "Guerrero"!! Only one pair left, so get it while you can! :D The Schizopelma sp. "Colima" are all sexed now as well and there are very few males left, so we are also offering a few single girls! Rameshwaram Ornamentals (Poecilotheria hanumavilasumica) are also running low, but we are still offering a special on small pairs (2" - 2½") at $350/pair. This deal is not listed on the price list nor anywhere else, so let's see who's on the ball!

Some very exciting news for scorpion enthusiasts! In addition to the Black Backed Desert Hairy Scorpions (Hadrurus spadix), we've also had some success with the Mexican Dwarf Blacks and have produced some offspring: Another Arachnophiliacs' first! We are offering these for a limited time at $15 each, but please be aware, they are tiny!

The Haitian Goliath Ruby Red Centipedes did very well last summer and we are happy to offer some CB pedelings (another first from Arachnophiliacs, these are almost ready!)!! This species can reach over 16" in length and nearly 2" in body width, making it even larger than gigantea or galapagoensis and even the pedelings are very large!! 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! Get one while you can! :D Also ready:
Malaysian Cherry Red Centipedes (Scolopendra subspinipes dehaani)
These beautiful CB babies are pure black with orange heads and bright red legs! We are offering these at an introductory special price of $40. until this offer disappears! Quote this when ordering as they are listed at $50 (again, let's see who's reading!) :D

More reptile list updates! Frog Eyed Sand Geckoes (Teratoscincus roborowski), Wheeler's Knob Tail Geckoes (Nephrurus wheeleri) and Australian Barking Geckoes (Underwoodisaurus milii) are all in. Though the Fat Tails sold out unbelievably fast, we are expecting more soon, so keep watching for updates! Hermann's Tortoises (Testudo hermanni) are just about ready (we've got a few juveniles/subadults available in the meantime!) and we've got another Indian Star Tortoise (Geochelone elegans) here as well. Amazon Milk Frogs (Trachycephalus risinifictrix) are back and our beautiful little tadpoles are climbing out of water every day! :D We've still got a couple of yearling Burmese Mountain Tortoises (Manouria emys emys) and this amazing species is really something! They have very flat carapaces as juveniles, almost like a Pancake Tortoise, and beautiful, thick, dark green plastrons with faint radiating light green rings. The limbs are covered in spiky scales and their care is quite different from most other tortoises in that they require far less heating and lighting, being a crepuscular, montane species. On that topic, we've also started carrying mercury vapour lamps for proper UVA/UVB lighting for all of your sun-loving reptiles!! Well priced too, at $70 for a 160-Watt bulb and dome light fixtures (rated for 250W) for $30 :)
