Calgary Reptile Expo, Sept 24/25

Amanda will be flying out for the Calgary Reptile  Expo, Sept 24/25.   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 other arachnids, isopods, books, and TarCan apparel.

We are now taking expo pre-orders. All pre-orders must in and paid by Sept 19 (remember, we have to send the animals out early, so we need time to pack them).  Pre-orders are not considered reserved until payment has been received (first come/first served rules still apply). We will be limited in the number of animals we can send out for the expo (particularly for scorpions, which take a lot of room to pack), and we have to split our stock between two expos the same weekend, so pre-orders are highly encouraged.

Victoria Group Shipment

We are in the planning stages for a group shipment to Victoria.  In the group, several orders will be shipped in one box to our colleague, who will receive the box ad make the orders available for pickup.  The shipping fees will be divided between the folks in the group, so the more folks who join in, the lower the shipping fees will be per person.  Once the shipping date and deadline have been set we will add the info to this announcement.   Anyone interested can put in a quote request via our web site as usual, and just state in the comments that it  for the Victoria group.


Tarantula Canada: Celebrating 20 years!

Wow, time flies when you are having fun!  Martin started Tarantula Canada way back in December of 2002, so for the remainder of 2022, we will be celebrating with contests, special offers, and more!  We will post the first contest soon.

In addition to the regular contests, we will have a Grand Prize Draw in December.  For every order placed and finalized via our website or in store in 2022 (including those placed earlier this year) your name will be entered into a draw to win a grand prize: a $500 Tarantula Canada gift certificate!  The draw will take place on December 31. *For clients who purchase in store, request that your purchase be entered under your name (rather than an anonymous store sale) in our system to be entered.  **This contest is only open to Canadian residents.
