2017 Winter Shipping Resumes

Holiday shipping break has begun

During the holiday season, Canada Post and other couriers have heavier than normal volume, making it difficult to deliver packages in a timely manner. For this reason, we will not be shipping live animals during the holiday season.

We will continue to take live animal orders through the holiday season, but we will resume shipping on January 9, after the holiday rush.

We will continue to ship non-live products (books, T-shirts, housing supplies, etc) through December 21, however if the order needs to arrive in time for Christmas, we recommend getting orders in before December 16.

Don't forget, we have lots of gift ideas for the invert lover on your holiday shopping list. Books, T-shirts, hats, Exo-Terra products, and yes, we have gift certificates too!

Toronto / Downsview Reptile Expo THIS SUNDAY December 11

Tarantula Canada will have a table at the Toronto Reptile Expo at Downsview Park, 40 Carl Hall Road Toronto, ON M3K 2B6, on Sunday, December 11. We will have our full selection of tarantulas (including new stock from the import)and other inverts, books, and TarCan apparel. There will be some special deals only available at the expo as well, so don't miss out! For folks using public transportation, there are several options available. More info is available on the TTC Website.

Please note, no species with potent venom, including Buthidae scorpions and Latrodectus sp, will NOT be available for sale at the expo, per the expo organizers' request.

**SPECIAL NOTE: for payments at this expo we will be accepting cash, VISA , MasterCard, AmEx, and INTERAC!!!!

We are now accepting pre-orders for pickup at the expo. The deadline to get preorders to us is Thursday December 8

401 Drop-Offs

Amanda will be available to make drop offs on her route (along the 401) from Montreal to Toronto on Saturday December 10. Anyone interested should contact us no later than Thursday December 8 with their orders.

Attention Hamilton: A friend has again offered to transport orders from the expo to Hamilton. If anyone on Hamilton or the surrounding area would like to get in on this chance for free transportation (you just need to pick them up at the GO station), please let us know by December 8.

Winter shipping reminders

Temperatures have fallen, and we have officially started the cold weather shipping season, meaning the purchase of an insulated box and heat pack is required for all live animal shipments. The cost is $10 for a small unit (ships up to 8 spiderlings), or $15 for a medium (ships up to 25 spiderlings, or larger specimens). Keep in mind that in the winter months we need to watch the forecasts very carefully, and if the forecast predicts heavy precipitation or temperatures that are too cold (either here in Montreal or at the destination), then shipments will be delayed until conditional are safer for the animals. The safety of the animals ALWAYS comes first.

Fall Import Has ARRIVED!

Well, it took a little more time than we expected to get all of the animals unpacked (especially since Amanda has had the flu and was not able to go to work for a few days), but the new arrivals are in and the price list has been updated! Martin will be updating the new species with photos as soon as he can. We are restocked on lots of hobby classics, as well as a huge selection of rare and new to the hobby species. We have also bumped up our selection of captive bred scorpions, other mygalomorph spiders and true spiders!
