April is Autism Awareness Month, and as April comes to a close we would like to remind everyone of the Montreal Autism Speaks Canada Walk fundraiser.
On May 28 the Tarantula Canada family will participate in the Montreal Autism Speaks Canada Walk . If anyone would like to support Team Tarantula Canada, go to the Team Tarantula Canada page to make a donation.
In addition to the walk, Tarantula Canada will donate a portion of all sales from now through May 28 to Autism Speaks!
Some of you may know that our boys, Anton and Lucien, are autistic. They are wonderful little boys, but they do have their challenges. Thanks to organizations like Autism Speaks, our boys have access to programs, services, and support that help them in their day to day lives, as well as the lives of other children with autism. Now, we want to take this chance to give something back.
Tarantula Canada will have a table at the Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society Fall Expo May 6 and 7. We will have our full selection of captive bred tarantulas and other inverts, as well as a selection of books, enclosures, and TarCan apparel. There will be some special deals only available at the expo as well, so don't miss out!
We are now accepting reservations for the expo.
Can't make it to the expo? For folks who cannot attend, order can still be shipped free of charge with the expo animals and picked up from Ollie in Leduc.
Interact debit, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express will be accepted, as well as good old cash.
Reminder: no wild caught animals are permitted at the expo and will not be available for sale.
Spring Import Has Arrived! Pricelist Updated
The spring import has arrived, and the price list is updated! We have lots of hobby classics back in stock, some rare and hard to find species, and a nice selection of new scorpions, true spiders, and Amblypygi (whip spiders). Our 5 for $100 and 5 for $50 specials have been updated with some of the new arrivals. We are still working on adding a few photos that are missing, but they should be updated soon. Please note that we want to give the animals a few days to recover from the stress of transit, so we will begin shipping the new arrivals April 10.
Cargo Mishap special: Two containers holding newly hatched Poecilotheria striata and Poecilotheria vittatta spiderlings were damaged in transit, and now these little guys are all mixed up. When they get bigger they will be easier to ID, but we do not want to wait to send these little guys off to new homes, so we are offering them on special at just $15 each!
Winter shipping reminders
Temperatures are still on the cold side, especially at night, so we are still in our cold weather shipping season, meaning the purchase of an insulated box and heat pack is required for all live animal shipments. The cost is $10 for a small unit (ships up to 8 spiderlings), or $15 for a medium (ships up to 25 spiderlings, or larger specimens). Keep in mind that in the cold weather months months we need to watch the forecasts very carefully, and if the forecast predicts heavy precipitation or temperatures that are too cold (either here in Montreal or at the destination), then shipments will be delayed until conditional are safer for the animals. The safety of the animals ALWAYS comes first.
