    POSITIVE! A+++

    On Sunday I ordered a P.metallica from http://arachnidsrva.com/ and just got it in today. The shipment was packed extremely well!! I could not complain about anything shipping wise or anything else for that matter. There was a P. metallica, C. thorelli ,and an A.chocoana. They were all packed in vials with moistened paper towels and each spider was very lively. Everything got to me safe and healthy. It was shipped fedex overnight with a heat pack and crumpled paper. They threw in a couple freebies which was great! Great communication between them and I. I would love to do business with them again that is for sure! Just from talking with the owner they seem very excited and are really willing to help you get the spider you really want. These are some great people and do great business. They are on par with some of the other big online sellers (jamies,kens) Highly recommended!

    I did a video Unboxing/review (sorry about the close shots) There are still pictures at the end also. :D

    My boyfriend and I met Aaron and Monica at a show in Havre de Grace and they were great! They are nice, knowledgeable, and I ended up leaving with a species I had never considered before (a Ceratogyrus) and my boyfriend left with a couple pokies. They spent time talking with us, sharing stories and answering any questions we had. Meeting them was totally worth the 2.5 hr drive to the show!

    My fiance and I met Aaron and Monica at the Harve De Grace All MD Reptile Show this past weekend. They were both very knowledgeable, nice, and very easy going. They also have a great selection to choose from: many species that I had never really seen offered in person before. They were great to talk to and had great prices. If you see a certain species they have listed on their website and know they will be coming to a show near you soon, feel free to contact them and request for them to bring it along.

    Thanks so much for the Poecilotheria subfusca "highland", looking forward to seeing you guys at future shows!

    Visited ArachnidsRVA at the Manassas, VA show this past Saturday, came looking to buy one tarantula, and ended up walking away with three. Couldn't be happier with the new T's. Even though the expo was pretty crowded, they took time with me to answer any questions I had, were both extremely personable, and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for them at any upcoming shows I go to.

    I also met these folks at the Manassas show last weekend. They are very knowledgeable and friendly; a couple friends and I ended up hanging out around their booth chatting for much of the afternoon. I walked away with an H. maculata and a P. irminia who are both doing very well.

    I met them at the Hamburg reptile show. Really cool people to talk to. We chatted a very long time about tarantulas. They were both clearly passionate and knowledgeable about their spiders. Eventually I bought one of their spiders, an Acanthoscurria sp. Great price and a nice looking spider. Will definitely do business with again!

    I met them at the hamburg show all I can say is they are very great people and a pleasure to do business with. I talked to them a few days before the show and asked if they had this T I was looking for. They were quick to respond that they did. I told them I would be at the hamburg show and they said they would bring it with them. I am more then pleased with my
    new T plus they even threw in a freebie which was very nice of them. I will def be doing more business with them soon.

    I'm extremely impressed with the four slings that I got from them at the Steel City Reptile Expo; I got a L. parahybana, Euathlus sp Pichidanqui Blue Beauty, and two P. murinus. I certainly will be purchasing from them again at the next show!

    Had another great transaction with Monica and Aaron. The prices are always great and they are always so knowledgable about their product. Bought a p. striata and a Malaysian earth tiger on Saturday. They were even nice enough to throw in an obt sling. Thanks again guys

  15. Hey, everyone, first post here on Arachnoboards. Just wanted to leave a review for Aaron and Monica from Arachnids RVA. I have purchased tarantulas from them at the last two Prince William County, VA reptile shows, and can't wait until May 12. They have the most extensive inventory of species of any dealer I've come across in person, and are very knowledgeable and passionate about the service they provide. they are always quick to respond to e-mails and go out of their way to help newbies with
    hobby queries! Can't recommend them enough! http://arachnidsrva.com/

    These people are amazing! I wanted (another) pretty T except a baby this time. I had no clue they had my favorite kind! A green bottle blue! Its the cutest lil thing! They even hooked me up with a temporary cage until it grows! As soon as I got back from the richmond reptile expo and set up the tank. I threw a little cricket in there. It pounced on it within seconds like a good lil baby! Thanks Aaron and Monica! :)

    I just bought a Brachypelma Emelia from these guys and Im very happy with the new experience of being a Tarantula owner. I met the RVA couple at a Maryland reptile expo but they go to alot more shows tho. They are friendly and informative because all my questions and inquirements were percisely answered from good conversation in person and quickly responded emails. It seems that their company and collection are still growing, and they are definately quite impresive. I belive that if somebody were to ask for a spider from them, they would do their best to get it if they dont already have it!Check out this cool Tarantula breeding comany from Richmond, Virginia at www.ArachnidsRVA.com

    These guys had a lone male Aphonopelma hentzi that needed some loving, so I decided to take him in to try out on my lovely lady. Just received their package moments ago in fact. Packing is top notch, and the spider is absolutely gorgeous! Will definitely be doing work with these guys again!

    Leaving a review :) I just got my Avicularia Avicularia today. Shes doing great! The shipping quality was good and the heatpack was still warm a couple hours after opening the box. She was really comfy in the container! I absolutely love her and recommend ArachnidsRVA 100%.

    Here's a picture of her now.
