  • Superb communication
  • Generous freebie policy
Cons
  • None
Bought a good group of spiders from Andrea recently and have nothing but good things to say. The selection on the website is decent, but when I inquired about his shipping policies he sent the info plus a long list of additional species he has available. I made my choices and decided that it was a really good deal... this was before choosing freebies, which launched the deal from being really good to being really great. His communication throughout the purchase process was stellar, and he was even very accommodating when I decided to make some adjustments to my order.

Shipping was prompt, packing was expert, and every spider I received was in optimal condition.

I'd say the best part of dealing with him is that he is very obviously a hobbyist with a passion for keeping and breeding spiders first, and a tarantula dealer second. This is becoming more rare in the hobby as we see the rise of companies owned by people who appear to be business people who just happen to have somehow gotten into the tarantula game.

I can recommend 8paws without hesitation.
Excellent

Pros
  • Pleasant, helpful vendor; extensive selection.
Cons
  • None.
After years of forum lurking, I finally purchased a tarantula at the All Ohio Reptile Show today. A mature female Acanthoscurria geniculata. A free sling was included in the package. I opted for a Stromatopelma calceatum sling. I also purchased a healthy quantity of dubia roaches from 8paws. I would not hesitate to purchase from this company again. I'm pleased that there is an active invertebrate dealer here in my hometown.
8paws is incredible!

Pros
  • Easy to navigate website
  • Great prices
  • Very prompt messaging!! He always gets back to me quickly on FB.
  • Great customer service! He answered all questions I had and still continues to!
  • All tarantulas he has are bred by him! He produces quality and healthy Ts and it’s great to see someone take pride in their work.
  • I did the local pick up option, as he is only a few hours from me and he was easy to work out a meet up time with!
  • Freebies!!!!
I could go on for days about my experience with 8paws! I will ALWAYS support someone who produces their own tarantulas, and take pride in it! Everything I saw was absolutely stunning, and I will continue to buy from him as long as I’m in the hobby. Already planning my next order and it hasn’t even been a week! Check out the website, and shop with confidence!
Excellent customer service. Great packaging.

Pros
  • Well formatted website that's easy to navigate. Plenty of options in the shop to help you find what you are looking for.
  • They responded to my messages/emails promptly. Usually within just a few minutes, but no more than an hour or two.
  • They were very professional, polite and helpful.
  • The T arrived the day after it was shipped. I received regular updates from 8Paws and the carrier during the shipping process.
  • The T I ordered was healthy. The packaging was very well done.
  • I received a free sling as a bonus.
Cons
  • No information on the Tarantulas they have listed. Not a problem if you are already familiar with the species, and of course you should always do more research outside of a dealers website. Not a strong con by any means. Just a slight quality of shopping issue.
I ordered a female juvenile Tapinauchenius violaceus.

An overall positive experience. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

A domestic breeder that is producing and shipping quality, healthy tarantulas.

Pricing is very reasonable. Customer service is prompt and professional.

  • communication, packaging, prices
Ordered 4 t violacious for 25$ each. Recieved a surprise freebie t violacious. Thar was a great surprise considering i only spent 100$. Thats 20$ each when the freebie is factored in. Packaged wonderfully as expected. Quick communication. Recieved a reminder of my order being shipped out. Happy with purchase and no complaints.
