Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986

News updates - August 5th, 2014:

Special announcement: We will have a $20 flat rate for shipping to the Gulf Islands, Nanaimo, Victoria and Whistler, BC. This would be shipping directly by air, so very fast and efficient (about 20 minutes, port to port!) and also very cheap! This offer expires Friday night (midnight) and the shipments would go out on Saturday morning (August 9th) so please let us know as soon as possible!

All of the lists have just been updated, including the reptiles (which desperately need new photos!). Sales continue to be unprecedented and the lists have gotten shorter (aside from the reptiles!) and the mantids are nearly out! The crazy summer/fall expo lineup is around the corner and it will be once again running all over the country!

The Haitian Goliath Ruby Red Centipedes have done very well this summer and we are crossing our fingers (but not holding our breaths!) for some eggs!! Another Arachnophiliacs first, 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! Get one while you can! :D

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

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!! Our second location in BC is thriving and taking on some of its own breeding projects! Very pleased with this! :D There will be no changes to the way in which appointments are scheduled. When you schedule a pickup or viewing, just let us know where you are and we will simply direct you to the appropriate location and contact for scheduling.

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) are now starting to run low as well and we are offering a special on small pairs (about 2") at $350/pair. This deal is not listed on the price list nor anywhere else, so let's see who's reading this! :D Get `em while you can!

We also have a new batch of Gooty Sapphire Ornamentals (Poecilotheria metallica coming in! These are now frac34;" in legspan and priced to go fast at $100. each! In fact, we're nearly out again! :D

More reptile list updates! We've got young Kenyan Sand Boas available These are double het Bell Snow and all are already sexed, so pairs and trios are available! We've also got het albino African House Snakes and some gorgeous adult Leopard Geckos available. Many of these already went at the Montreal expo, but we've still got a decent selection and about a dozen left :)The Boas are nearly all gone (one Salmon Boa 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 sibling 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!
