First shipping day of 2020

Vancouver and Edmonton group shipments

We are in the planning stages for group shipments to Vancouver and Edmonton.  Our goal is to get the shipping fees to $15 or less per person.   The more folks who join in, the lower the shipping fees will be per person.  We are tentatively setting the deadline to get orders in for the groups at November 17.  


More group shipments? Calgary, Victoria, Kelowna

We have been getting requests for group shipments to other cities, including Calgary, Victoria, and Kelown.  We need to see if there is enough interest to get groups going to these cities, so if anyone is interested, please give us a shout.


Toronto Reptile Expo : December 8

Tarantula Canada will be attending the Toronto Reptile Expo on December 8.  Come out to get some great deals on captive bred inverts, and take advantage of specials only available at the expo.  We will have our full selection of tarantulas, as well as a selection of scorpions and other arachnids, isopods, books, housing supplies, and TarCan apparel.  

We are now taking reservations for this expo for folks who do not want to miss out on the critters on their wish list.   The deadline to get reservations in and paid is December 5.

New Policy:   Due to an ongoing issue of some clients reserving animals for expos but not picking them up, we now require all expo reservations to be pre-paid.  Pre-orders are not considered reserved until payment has been received (first come/first served rules still apply).

For payments at this expo we will be accepting cash, VISA , MasterCard, AmEx, and debit!!!!

Special Note:  species with potent venom (including Buthidae scorpions, centipedes, and Latrodectus sp) will NOT be available for sale at the expo, per the expo organizers' request.

Drop-Offs- 401 : Amanda will be available to make drop offs along highway 401 between Montreal and Toronto on her way to the expo on Saturday December 7. Anyone who would like to arrange for a drop off should contact us no later than Thursday December 5.

Attention Hamilton:
