Just Hatched: Theraphosa stirmi!

We just hatched a small eggsac of Theraphosa stirmi! The spiderlings are now available, 1" at $100!


Pseudhapalopus trinitatis: A lesson in Patience

Today was a great day... also a reminder how tarantulas teach us patience! In 2006 Amanda and I collected (legally) a few specimens of Pseudhapalopus trinitatis (at the time Metriopelma trinitatis). We were lucky as one of the small females made an eggsac and we were able to get some babies.

After 10 years + of raising them, we finally captive bred this species, which I believe is the first time ever in the hobby.

We had given and sold some specimens from the original sac, but no one was ever able to breed them until now.

We now have these love spiderlings available for sale, 1/4" at $45 each.


New Import From Mexico!

We have finally received a long awaited import from Mexico! We have some classic Brachypelma species back in stock, as well as a few rare and hard to find species. Check out the new species below.

We would like to offer a bit of clarification on a few species names on the new arrivals. There was a recent update to the taxonomy for the genus Brachypelma, and several names have been changed.

The classic Mexican Red Knee tarantulas used to go by the name Brachypelma smithi, but these have been reclassified as Brachypelma hamorii.

There is STILL a species named Brachypelma smithi, but it was previously sold in the hobby as Brachypelma annitha.

We now have BOTH of these species available, so we ask that when placing orders, please be sure to identify clearly the one that you would like.

Here are the new arrivals!

Brachypelma hamorii : Classic Mexican Red Knee

Brachypelma smithi

Brachypelma albiceps

Psalmopoeus victori

Schizopelma bicarinatum

Bonnetina cyaneifemur
