Monday 1/15 is a postal holiday and so all Thursday 1/11 through Monday 1/15 shipments will go out on Tuesday or Wednesday per weather (and terms and conditions). Please plan accordingly.

Thank you for visiting the number one resource for live, pet bugs in the United States. Through active participation in a hobby we love, we are grateful to have had the opportunity to support our nation's museums, universities and various institutions that also dedicate themselves to fostering an appreciation for insects and other arthropods. We do not import or export, but we are happy to attempt to direct you towards what you are looking for. We are bug generalists, interested in everything from springtails and pseudoscorpions on up to goliath birdeater tarantulas and native rhino beetles.

Wanna be "in the know?" Click Follow us on Instagram. We post fresh photo and video content on a daily basis, and do contests for free bug giveaways!

You may be considering the purchase of live animals, not lifeless trinkets. Please review our Terms and Conditions page before you place your order. Shipping days are discussed there. Shipping service types and which ones to choose for your living shipment are discussed there. December through March 1st, express mail is required for living shipments.

The shopping cart accepts all major credit cards, as well as PayPal. Please Contact Us if you have any questions.

Livestock trades are always considered, and we buy a lot of live and dried bugs too!
