Specialising in captive bred Arachnids from around the world since 1986


.........For our reptile customers, we've got Mercury vapour heat lamps (MVB)! These bulbs emit both U.V.A. and U.V.B. rays, essential for proper absorption of Calcium in basking reptiles such as turtles and tortoises as well as diurnal lizards. These are ZooMed's PowerSun brand and are the best quality bulbs we've found yet and available at the unbeatable price of 85$ for 100-Watt and 115$ for 160-Watt (taxes included)! We've also got dome light fixtures, rated at 300 Watts, with clamp as well as hanging mounts for $30.


.........We have scaled back our selection of dry goods substantially, but we do still have a wide selection of metal screen tops for various tank sizes, flourescent tubes, canopies, light fixtures, vitamin and mineral supplements, reptile diets!


......... Over the many years I have been keeping Arachnids, I have yet to find a suitable substrate sold anywhere. For this reason, I have always mixed my own and am now offering it for sale in 4 litre bags. These are priced at $5 each.


......... Generally, we don't offer much in the way of hides, but we do occassionally have some options. Please let us know what you need and we'll try our best to accommodate you!

Cage Setups

.........Due to the wide availability and fragile nature of Critter Keepers, we no longer stock these! Enclosures generally sold as "Custom acrylic enclosures" are rarely suitable for tarantulas in our opinion, but we do have some BioBubble acrylic domes for sale at the low price of 90$! These attractive little acrylic domes are made of marine grade acrylic, have a 360-degree view and at 16" (40cm) in diameter, are well suited to keeping mid-sized terrestrial tarantulas, scorpions or other invertebrates, though some minor modifications are recommended (please ask for details or how we can make these modifications for you). These are also available with internal filter and pump for those wishing to set them up for fish or other aquatics.
