Sliding-scale Volume Discount
We have added sliding-scale, volume discount purchasing. The more you buy the more you save. Start with a 5% discount at $100. Higher discounts for larger purchases reach a maximum 25% for purchases of $300 or more. Discounts are automatically calculated by our shopping cart calculator before you checkout. Try it and see.
Tarantulas and other arachnids
Tarantulas and other arachnids from around the world at your doorstep overnight. We supply hobbyists, breeders, and resellers from our rearing and breeding location here in Massachusetts. The majority of our species are imported from Germany on a quarterly basis. All imports are in accordance with USFW and US Customs regulations. As US CB offspring become available we post them for sale, with prices that reflect the US CB advantage. We support responsible US breeding by providing guaranteed lineage, novel species, females, males, and breeding groups.
The hobby of tarantula keeping and breeding is moving quickly. As many of you know, numerous species have not yet been described by science. Others are in need of redescription. We use traditional scientific nomenclature for described and undescribed species. Unfortunately, errors in hobby-based nomenclature are not uncommon. Common names, perpetuated seemingly by profiteers, introduce further confusion and error. Our goal is to point out naming errors and inaccuracies where we find them, and help pave the way for scientific names to supercede the whimsical common.
Please check to see if there is a photo and text accompanying a given species in which you are interested. The paragraph(s) provide information about the species, and explain hobby-wide errors in naming, and thereby identification. The information used is collected from a variety of sources, often overseas collectors, breeders, exporters, and arachnologists. Additional sources include hobby and arachnology textbooks, the Journal of the British Tarantula Society, and original scientific manuscripts. We don’t claim to know everything–we more than welcome information, including photographic, from any interested party. Credit will be assigned for facts and photos used in a posting, with permission granted of course.

Sliding-scale Volume Discount
We have added sliding-scale, volume discount purchasing. The more you buy the more you save. The scale starts with a 5% discount at $100. Higher discounts for larger purchases reach a maximum 25% for purchases of $300 or more.* Discounts are automatically calculated by our shopping cart calculator before you checkout.
Soon we will add 10x and greater bulk purchasing, independent of the sliding-scale discount, especially designed for breeders and resellers.
Thank you for your consideration.
*Note to resellers. In most cases a 25% discount is equivalent to what many call “wholesale.” Check our work. Let us know how we can do better.
