Edmotnon: Free shipping offer

As some folks may already know, Amanda will be flying out to Calgary for the reptile expo. The expo stock will also be shipped via air cargo, and we have decided to use this opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. We have arranged for transportation for animals back to Edmonton from Calgary. This will be a FREE transportation opportunity, and orders can be picked up from Ollie in Leduc after May 28. Anyone who would like to get in on this free shipping offer should email us their orders no later than May 23.


Vancouver Group Shipment

We have a group shipment planned for Vancouver, probably to be shipped around May 31. The shipping fees for the group have been set at just $10 per person! Jim will be handing the group as usual. He will receive the animals via Air Cargo, and will make them available for pickup. Anyone wishing to get in on the group shipment should send us their orders no later than May 30.


Autism Speaks Fundraiser: 75% of Goal Reached!

BIG THANKS! At the Downsview Reptile Expo on May 6, the generous visitors and vendors helped us to raise $117 for our Autism Speaks fundraiser!

75% of Goal Reached! Team Tarantula Canada has reached 75% of its fundraising goal! We have almost 2 weeks left to meet our fundraising goal if anyone would like to pitch in.

Once again, Tarantula Canada will be supporting the Autism Speaks Canada Walk: Montreal 2018. We hope to raise $1000 for team Crestview (the boys' school). If anyone would like to make a donation to help us reach our goal, please visit our Tarantula Canada team page

Some of you may know that our boys 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. Now through May 27, a portion of all Tarantula Canada sales will be donated to Autism Speaks.


Calgary Reptile Expo

Tarantula Canada will have a table at the upcoming Calgary Reptile Expo! This is our first event in Calgary, and we are super excited to finally get the chance to meet our Calgary friends in person. Amanda will be flying out to run the tables, so stop by and say hello, and maybe grab a few eight-legged critters. There will be lots of expo specials, and we will have our full selection of tarantulas and other inverts available (including all of the new species from the Spring Import), as well as a selection of books and TarCan T-shirts.

We are now taking pre-orders for the expo for folks who want to reserve their favorite critters for pickup. The deadline to get pre-orders in will be May 18.


Spring import is HERE! Pricelist updated!

It took a few days, but we FINALLY have the new arrivals on the pricelist! A few photos are missing, but Martin will be updating those ASAP. We have received over 70 new species, 2400 specimens in total, and they are ready to find new homes. As is the case after every import, we are flooded with emails and messages, so please give us a little extra time to reply. We are answering messages as fast as we can.
