TARANTULAS.com is the original Internet source for tarantula information and a leader in tarantula sales and captive breeding. We support the hobby in numerous ways, especially with our intensive captive breeding efforts. Specializing in the immensely popular arboreal tarantulas, such as the Avicularia "pink-toed treespiders" of South America and the Poecilotheria ornamental tarantulas of Sri Lanka and India, we consistently produce some of the finest tarantulas available. We don't bother with a wide number of species, but instead focus on the most desirable and popular pets.
Written by TARANTULAS.com's own Michael Jacobi, Animal Planet's Tarantulas is a new concise and informative bookcovering the exciting hobby of tarantulaculture. This book is intended to introduce keepers to tarantula keeping and promote correct husbandry techniques.
This book distills essential tarantulaculture and tarantula biology and behavior to 30,000 words that conclude with a brief overview of breeding. For only the cover price of $10.95 and $2.90 shipping (in the USA, additional charges for international orders) you can have an author inscribed copy on your bookshelf. Click here to order from Exotic Fauna. (This book is not sold by TARANTULAS.com).
We are excited to launch this re-designed TARANTULAS.com and continue to provide exceptional information on tarantula keeping to both the beginner and advanced keeper. Please see the Quick Links in the right sidebar to read articles on important tarantula husbandry topics.
As one of the first arachnid hobbyist cyber-communities, TARANTULAS.com originally featured an interactive member's forum. However, over time our forum saw decreased use as other hobby portals went online. Some have since fallen by the wayside, but one in particular has become enormously successful - ARACHNOBOARDS. Running a huge forum requires a great deal of time for post moderation and site maintenance, and we simply don't have it. So, with the launch of this new TARANTULAS.com redesign, we have chosen to eliminate the forum feature. Therefore, there is no longer a "membership" log-in to the site. All features are available to all visitors, including our greatly expanded care information and gallery sections.
The original mission statement when this site was launched well over a decade ago read, "Our goal at Tarantulas.com is to become the #1 resource on the internet for those interested in invertebrates. We wish to provide extensive information for anyone seeking knowledge about the world of invertebrates, from the novice to the hobbyist to the scientific community...We value you, as a viewer and user of this site and gladly accept your valuable input."
That mission hasn't changed. Although the forum is gone and there is an emphasis on sales, we still intend to provide exceptional content. There is a lot of info out there in cyberspace — much more than when this site began. But there is an escalating amount of poor information often passed as expert advice, and here we seek to provide you with a trusted source of information written by the most experienced tarantula keepers anywhere. Please visit our Care Info page to learn more about tarantula keeping and breeding.
We sell the finest quality tarantulas and more with overnight shipping to your doorstep with live arrival and complete satisfaction guaranteed. Click here to view our updated price list and learn more.
We are first and foremost tarantula breeders. We work with species we enjoy and those that are popular terrarium pets. We don't offer a huge selection of the numerous species available to the hobbyist, and we don't sell many wild-caught animals. Our stock is largely made up of species we breed ourselves or obtain from a few select partners in captive breeding efforts. We strive to offer the best quality animals packed with care and shipped safely and legally via UPS Next Day Air. TARANTULAS.com is operated by two guys with a combined experience in excess of 50 years and this results in exceptional customer service.
