I am just wondering what you have for insects? Is it a line of feeder incects for different critters? And also, do you have any tarantulas in the shop?
By tropi26, July 16, 2010 @ 10:29 am
We do carry crickets, mealworms, super worms, and wax worms for feeding. Currently we are sold out of tarantulas, but they are something we regularly stock. We expect to have more within in the next couple of weeks. Right now we have a whip scorpion in stock.

Alright, well I was in your store yesterday to look around for a bit. You have some great stuff! What species of tarantulas do you usually stock? Or does that vary?
By tropi26, July 17, 2010 @ 5:04 pm
Thanks for stopping by and checking out the store!! The species of tarantulas does vary depending on what is available. The most common one we carry is the rose hair. In the past, we have also carried the pink toe, zebra knee, and red leg tarantulas. Let us know if there is something you would like us to get in for you.

Im not looking for anything in particular right now. I am just in town visiting my sister, and thought I would check out your store since it is probably and hour drive to any pet store from where I live. But I will be sure to come and see what you have the next time I am in town visiting!

DO you have access to teacup chihuahua’s and if so, how much? Also how much is your min pin cost?
By tropi26, August 30, 2010 @ 10:40 am
We do get Chihuahua’s in once or twice a year, they typically run around 5lb, but there is no guarantee on the size. We will be posting on our puppy page pics of new puppies. You can either check there or you can call 715-832-0174, and leave your name and number, we will give you a call when we get a Chihuahua in.
The Min Pin is currently at $499.99.

I am from a Jacob’s Well Church in Chippewa Falls. I am going to be teaching the elementary kids about how they are all unique. We are going to use insects as an example of this. So…every week in the month of November I would like to bring in a Unique insect. Some that I have in mind are scorpions, large millipieds and maybe trantula’s. Do you have any of these in stock? In the past, when I have worked with pet stores I usually get a temporay set up and bring the creature back to the store. Sometimes I get a charge for this and sometimes I don’t. Either way, I think that your store has the greatest variety of “unique” pets. Can you tell me what you will have available in November? I will need 4 different insects. One per week. Thank you so much. Looking forward to working with you. ~Roxann

Roxann- We have “lent” out critters to schools in the past for educational purposes. We usually have you purchase the critter and then when you bring them back we will issue you a refund. Right now for insects we have rose hair tarantulas, scorpians, and hissing cockroaches. We also have super worms, wax worms, and mealworms that are food for reptiles but classes have used them in the past. There is no guarantee what will be available in November, we do have several of each but they are out on the floor for sale. Let us know what you would be interested in and we will do are best to make sure we have one in for you.

By tropi26, January 29, 2011 @ 2:17 pm
We do not carry them but we have a great connection to the reptile world. If you are strongly considering one you can call the store at 71-832-0174 and leave your name and number with us and we can do our best to find you one.

Hi, I have owned my home for nearly ten years and I am preparing to move into an apartment, finding it necessary too downsize in my life. In addition I am at the point in my life that I am facing my fears one by one, three of which were needles, being completely alone with another solely relying on me for everything and being single . I have faced and over come these by first leaving my ex of 8 years, donating plasma until it has become a bi-weekly ordeal and spending a week backpacking though state forrest with my lab relying on me for everything. Overcoming all of these fears have been amazing and liberating experiences. I am ready for my fourth; spiders. A spider in equivalent size to a wolf spider causes a paralytic type of fear in me. Oddly tarantulas have been more of a flight vs fight or paralyzed feeling but I still fear them. I decided that upon moving into my apartment I am going to pick up a very large aquarium (initially for creating a habitat of plants that my cats cannot get into) and have decided that this would be a perfect time to work on spiders. I’m open to types of plants, humilities and temperatures. I’m great with plants… I’ve even grown sweet peas and habeneros indoors with successful harvests after being told by experienced people it could never be done. I want a spider, don’t care what type in order to overcome this fear but I need to plan this out with the plants in advance so that I may create the perfect environment for the specific spider. Money is an issue and I gather that rose haired tarantulas are the easiest for you to obtain and the cheapest should I kill it (don’t fear, I’m one of those pet owners that gets attached easily and sticks with them through thick and thin). I guess I am writing to see what you would recommend for a spider closest to the size I fear and still easy to create a habitat for… I’m guessing around a 50 gal aquarium (ideally, but would depend on what I can get the best deal on). My plant ideas have ranged from ivys and common texas climate plants to household high water plants to succulents to even the hard to care for poppies. I have even figured out the small waterfall without being too large or deep for an insect to drown in. I, much like other people, would be wanting this to be a display piece as well as functional. I plan to get to know the spider via caring for the plants and eventually touching and holding it; becoming comfortable to the point of holding it. any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Personally I find the cobalt blue tarantula as beautiful, the black tarantulas as creepy, the pink toed as intriguing, the rose hair as boring and the red kneed as common.
As someone who knows MUCH more than I about the care of these different types, I look forward to reading your suggestions, prices and availabilities.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I truly do look forward to either purchasing or ordering through your store.

In general the best “beginner” tarantulas are the ground dwellers or burrowers, as they tend to be a little slower moving. The following are among the best tarantulas for first time owners:
•Chilean Rose (Grammostola rosea)
•Costa Rican Zebra (Aphonoplema seemani)
•Mexican Redknee (Brachypelma smithi)
•Mexican Redleg (Brachypelma emilia)
•Desert/Mexican Blonde (Aphonopelma chalcodes)
•Curly Hair Tarantula (Brachypelma albopilosum)
We have had others, but we typically only get in the Rose Hair which run about $25.
Stop in and we can help you out with the supplies you would need.

I am on the search for an emperor scorpion or two…or three or four, ha! I am going to be in town again this weekend and thought I would try my luck. Do you have any in stock right now?
By tropi26, May 17, 2011 @ 12:59 pm
Hi Patrick, you are in luck, we do have one Emperor Scorpion in stock.
By ryan, August 29, 2011 @ 4:22 pm
do you carry and dubia roaches or tomato horn worms as feeder insects
By tropi26, August 30, 2011 @ 2:27 pm
Hi Ryan, we do not carry the roaches or worms that you mentioned, but we do have hissing cock roaches that many people use to feed their reptiles instead of crickets.
By Marissa, October 2, 2011 @ 8:51 pm
hello, my mom is a school teacher and is currently searching for a large millipeede, so i was wondering if you carry any?
By tropi26, October 4, 2011 @ 10:00 pm
We do not carry them but there is a chance as special ordering them, let us know if this is something you would be interested in.
By Mikale, October 16, 2011 @ 3:39 pm
hello. my boyfriend loves tarantulas, and has owned one before, but has never bothered to get another after his other one died. so, i was planning on getting him one for christmas. i was wondering, what kinds do you have that i could buy, and do you have any suggestions as to which species i should get? please let me know! thanks!
By Mikale, October 16, 2011 @ 3:50 pm
also, about how much do you think it would cost to get a setup for the tarantula?
By tropi26, October 17, 2011 @ 9:10 am
Hi Mikale, you are probably looking at spending about $75 depending on the size of setup for a tarantula.
By Mikale, October 24, 2011 @ 2:07 pm
hey, how much money/how long would it take to order a different kind of tarantula? like, a costa rican zebra or a cobalt blue?
By tropi26, October 25, 2011 @ 11:44 am
Hi Mikale, we are thinking of placing an order for reptiles next week sometime depending on the weather (if it is to cold they won’t ship them). So let us know if you are seriously interested we can order one for you. As far as price goes, we won’t know until we get billed for them. The cobalt blue’s will probably start at about $59.99 and go up depending on size. We have not had the costa rican zebra before so we wouldn’t know about pricing until that one comes in.
