Great for ages 5 and up

Our tarantulas range from curly haired (pictured), Mexican red kneed, zebra, and goliath bird eaters. Other than the goliath, all of our tarantulas are good natured and can be handled gently. 

Although tarantulas are very creepy looking, most are harmless unless provoked. They are mostly terrestrial, so they like to hide underground or underneath logs, etc. These fur covered arachnoids are great for the environment because they consume so many insects. 


*Fun fact:  tarantulas are covered with barbed bristles that they sling for protection.
