Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986

News updates - August 18th, 2017:

Just updated the expo lineup! Anyone interested in preordering or volunteering for any of these expos, please let us know as soon as possible as sceduling will be crazy with 5 expos in just one month (Red Deer, Toronto, Calgary & Regina, Abbotsford followed by Edmonton 3 weeks later)! The Victoria expo was a huge success with a surprisingly large turnout and we are now getting ready for the fall expo season. On that note, Red Deer (WCRE) is next (August 26&27) and we are already taking preorders. There have been a fair number of new animals and breedings going on, though some have already sold out and we apologise for the latency of the site updates!.

There have been a number of changes to the Spider List, including a new shipment and a few new hatchings :) The Mexican Red Knees (Brachypelma smithi) and Mexican Red Legs (Brachypelma emilia) are now getting bigger, but we've got more spiderlings ready to go :) Columbian Giant Red Legs (Megaphobema robustum) are growing crazy fast and some are almost 2" already!! Also added to the list are Amazon Sapphire Pink Toes (Avicularia diversipes, Peruvian Green Velvets (Thrixopelma pruriens), Socotra Island Blue Legged Baboons (Monocentropus balfouri) and Ladybird Spiders (Eresus walckenaeri) to name a few!

The Scorpion List has undergone a HUGE update! Plenty of new and exciting species added to the list, but we think the stars of the list are the 2 new Androctonus!! Previously considered different locales of Androctonus amoreuxi, these look quite different and are much larger, in fact they are the largest species known!! Plenty more exciting species added, but we leave you to find the rest! There are always folks demanding common names for all of these species, but many of these are quite rare and really don't have common names. We've had to invent a few, so keep this in mind if you are looking for info online, and search instead for the Latin names :)

We have almost completely sold out of Tailess Whipscorpions and are waiting for more babies to be born, but we do have more Vietnam Giant Centipedes (Scolopendra subspinipes) in stock! :D

There have also been quite a few changes on the Reptile and Amphibians list, mostly with the amphibians! Lots of new toads and Asian frogs added, those these are selling out rapidly! We've also got some tortoise eggs cooking and some beautiful Ornate x Carolina Diamondback terrapins (Malaclemmys terrapin macrospilota x centrata) on the way!! If you are looking for reptiles not listed, please contact us and we will see what we can do for you.

Watch for more updates on the Miscellaneous Goods page over the next while as we have a large selection of reptile and aquarium products currently available. From light bulbs to mesh tops, driftwood to dechlorinators, test kits to reptile foods, we've got it all!

We are still on the lookout for more Chelonian species! If you are a turtle or tortoise breeder, please contact us!

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 (and our customers!) 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 ;)

Upcoming Expos:
With the large number of Southern Ontario shows being so close together, we are not able to attend them all. Until this changes, we will likely only be attending the Spring (Easter), Summer and Fall (CRBE) shows. Unless stated otherwise, these are shows we are attending and have confirmed! More expo updates soon to come, but we are booked for Calgary, Edmonton and Regina as well! :D
