Hobbyist in New Brunswick needs help

A hobbyist in Rothesay, New Brunswick s in need of some help.  Due to some unforeseen life events, he needs to temporarily relocate to a new residence, and is unable to bring his animal with him.  His is hoping to find folks to foster his arachnids until he can get settled into a new place of his own.  If anyone would be interested in helping out, please email us.  


Vancouver Group Shipment

We have a group shipment planned to the Vancouver area.  In the group, all of the orders will be shipped via air cargo to our colleague Tempest, who will receive the animals and make them available for pickup.  Right now it looks like the group fee will be $15 per person, but this may go down depending on how many folks join in.  The exact date has not been set, but the goal is to ship at the end of the month.  We are tentatively setting the deadline to get orders in and paid at June 28.  


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.
