The below stock list represents species that can
be field-collected for your order. Due to high gasoline prices, our collector's time
away from their families and/or jobs, and the strenuous labor incurred in hunting in high
temperatures and humidity in full sun or night hunting with swarms of
mosquitoes and in the habitats of alligators, cotton mouth snakes, and other dangerous wildlife, our
minimum order is a six lot on any species. Most of these collecting trips take 1 to 3
hours car drive and 1 to 6 hours of hunting to find your desired stock.
Field-collecting takes 1-2 weeks on average. Full payment required prior
to collecting. Desired sexing and sizes will be catered to, but not
guaranteed. Order six or more increases you chances of getting ideal
sexing and sizes. Also, sexing and sizes depends on the time of year in
the species life cycle.
We specialize in working for researchers that are doing studies on web
structure, behavior and venom. We can collect certain stock like orb
weavers and wolf spiders in larger quantities of 50+ with discounts.
*** Important: The Alabama collecting season runs
mainly between late April through late September. Early October is a
50/50 chance depending on how soon 40F nights start happening, but definitely
late October though early April are months in which it is too cold and/or
many species have ended their life cycle. Also, this list is always being added to. It is not the complete fauna list for the state.
