Paladin Exotics got its start in St. Louis, Missouri in 2017 at the Show Me Snakes Reptile & Exotics Show. We started out with just one miserable looking table with a couple of dozen tarantulas and some carnivorous plants. Vending the Show Me Shows gave us the opportunity to work with local breeders and vendors to learn exactly what tarantula keepers need and expect from a vendor.
Eventually we expanded to shows in 8 states all around the midwest. Over the years we have educated thousands of people about tarantulas and have had the honor of placing hundreds of new keepers with their first tarantula.
Our reputation has spread all across the country and we have become the Midwest's largest and most trusted source for tarantulas, scorpions, & exotic inverts.
Paladin Exotics formed from a love for the tarantula hobby as a whole.
We have never felt more welcomed or appreciated by a group of people like we have from our fellow tarantula keepers.
Thank you for doing your part in supporting the hobby!
