Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986



News updates - June 15th, 2015:

All pages updated! Plenty of new photos and more on the way! Downsview has passed, but there is another Downsview expo July 12th and we will be sending another group shipment accordingly. A shipping share costs only 15$/order and pickups can be at the expo itself or within one week after the show at two locations in Toronto and one in Hamilton! Orders must be completed and paid by July 11th at the latest to be eligible for this rate :) Also booked the CRBE for September 19-20 and this should be our most exciting CRBE yet!

Picked up a few more spiders this week and a few more sold out! Still plenty of Trapdoor spiders (Ctenizidae), along with Silver Tunnel Web Spiders (Cyphonisia sp.) and Stout Legged Baboons (Eucratoscelus pachypus). These are all females and long term, established captives! 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 subadult 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 :(

We've got LT Tanzanian Three Striped Scorpions (Hottentotta trilneatus) on special this week. Take three for just 125$. We've also got some CB babies. These were born last week and should be available soon :) Jericho Chocolates (Nebo hierochonticus) are already breeding, but these guys can have a VERY long gestation period, so this could take a while and we are now waiting on more Belizean Dwarf Black (Diplocentrus maya babies!

Mantids are completely out of stock, and Tanzanian Tailess Whipscorpions (Damon diadema) are back, but few in number this time. The Euphrynichus bacillifer group has been spoken for, but we still have the two Phrynus pinarensis :) Looking forward to working with these 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 ;)

Reptile list has been overhauled and all Chelonians now have photos!! Some new breeding groups are now underway and we're looking forward to producing some very rare species in the next while!! Hermann's Tortoises (Testudo hermanni) are back again, and hopefully, we'll have more Greek Tortoises (Testudo graeca) soon! We are proud to now have a Bell's Hingeback Tortoise (Kinixys belliana) in our hands. This is a CB adult male and we'd consider offering him to someone possessing a female or, alternatively, purchasing a female for him. Once commonly imported in large numbers, this species has almost completely disappeared in Canada! If you've got a girl, please let us know, so that we can keep this extremely rare species going! New to the list are Giant Leaftail Geckoes (Uroplatus fimbriatus). These are LT captive males, originally purchased as subadults. They are now fully grown and measuring about 10"! We've also got some premium Leopard Geckoes (Eublepharis macularius), including Tangerine Tornadoes and White and Yellows and we are also on the lookout for a male Deleani's Knob Tail Gecko (Nephrurus deleani). Amazon Milk Frogs (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) 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 African Bullfrogs (Pyxicephalus sp.) are also in and thriving!

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!

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 it is one of the last tasks to get done and the care of the animals always comes first!! The bright side? The longer it takes to get the mailer out, the more likely a surprise special will be in it ;)
