About Us

I’m Aram and the sole owner of UrbanTarantulas.
I’m a small business based out of Los Angeles California.
I have been involved with the hobby for 9 years.

You could say I have a passion for raising these little and not so little creatures. It’s a treat to watch them grow, and truly an experience of a lifetime when you finally get to breed them and see hatchlings emerge out of an egg sac.

I have worked with over 100 species, and successfully paired and bred many.
From Aphonopelma to Xenesthis, from arboreal to fossorial, and from bird eaters to dwarf species.

My all time favorite species is without a doubt, the Monocentropus Balfouri. I love them because of their inherently rare characteristics of being communal with one another.
I specialize in this particular species, and I possibly have the world’s largest Balfouri colony. 

Shoot me a message if you have any questions regarding any of the species you see on my website.
