A good variety of arachnids are available throughout the year from Monkfield. The selection we offer caters for the novice arachnid keeper as well as the more advanced collector.

Arachnids have gained in popularity as a pet species. One of the factors being that a lot of the species are relatively easy to keep, also they are interesting to watch and take very little space to house.

"Working at Monkfield is being part of a great team.
This was a small family business when I started some years ago. I have seen it expand over the years but the true values have remained the same, the standard of the produce and the customer relations are paramount."
