(CA or US) Titan Monster Beetle Shop Experience


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had experience with titan monster beetle shop? They’re a beetle seller from Taiwan.

Preferably if you’re from Canada or the US. They offer worldwide shipping but I’m not sure if it’s even worth it as getting non native larvae across the border seems impossible if customs check packages. I was thinking they can label the species as native as it’s hard to tell from just the larvae? 

Is anyone aware of the price of potential fines in Canada from importing these beetles without a permit?

Not sure how customs work, but if anyone has any insight on how they check for these things at the border let me know.

I wasn’t planning on importing non native species, I’m more so curious on how they manage to offer worldwide shipping on species that are non native.

 

Thanks

Titan is pretty long-time seller been there for over 15 years at least that is when I first heard of them, and been pretty well known to a lot of people even in that time. I never purchased any live beetles from him, but some dried specimens and rearing tools, but Titan is a legit dealer indeed. I was a forum member with him at [Maggot's], an English language based forum closed very long time ago.

Honestly, it's better to just get the permits if you want non-natives. They might be a hassle to get, but dodging the law is very dangerous. Get the permits, and you'll always be good to go. But if you break the law and get caught, you might never be able to import anything again.
