Brazilian Fire Leg Tarantula

Fuzz
Brazilian Fire Red Tarantula

This impressive boy is sure to cause excitement!

Fuzzy prefers to stay safely tucked away in his travel tote but that’s ok, it’s easier to see him that way. Can you see his eyes?

Vinegaroon

Malt

Is he a cricket? A beetle? Possibly a type of crab?
While those are all great guesses, Malt is actually a type of whiptail scorpion. What a cutie!

Emperor Scorpion

Sting
Emperor Scorpion

This is another critter that prefers to stay in the safety of his tote. Did you know?… When placed under a black light, these fascinating scorpions glow in the dark!

Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula

Rosita

Rosita is definitely a fan favourite! This sweet girl has made many new friends over the years and has even helped some conquer their fear of spiders.

Mr. Crabs and Crabby Patty are our current Hermit Crab ambassadors. Although most events happen while they are supposed to be sleeping, they are usually willing to poke their heads out of their shells to say “Hi!”.
