I will start off this by saying that all of my tarantulas arrived safely and are looking good after a bit of a drink. An adult female did have a rather small abdomen out of the bunch, but nothing a few roaches won’t fix.
I will also say that this seller is very clear in their terms that they do ship through USPS, which I had not realized til I was paying for them (my fault). Ordinarily, I dislike anything being shipped through a system that doesn’t allow said species such as tarantulas, but for this one time I decided to go with it. The seller DID offer to ship through FedEx if I were to provide a label, but I am unsure of how to do such so for the one time purchase, I decided against it.
Of course, being shipped through USPS means that they are not labeled as live animals and though overnight shipping speeds up the process— a lot can still happen to a package and the tarantulas could have been harmed (package gets caught on a belt, thrown, stored in a high/low temp, etc).
For these reasons, I will probably not buy from this person again til FedEx is their primary shipping method with properly labeled boxes, but it was a decent price and they did arrive safely, hence the title.
Great Seller (Androctonus Amoreuxi / Androctonus Australis (Tunisian))
Would you purchase from again?
Variety of Scorpions
The scorpions both arrived in good shape. Amoreuxi took a week to settle in and finally begin to eat. He is hardy and only enjoys crickets and does not like variety in his diet haha. The Australis and Amoreuxi are both very shy eaters which is unfortunate but understandable since my 3 other Australis are also shy. Overall I would do business again this seller is a great seller, but I'm only going for the venomous scorps because that is all I keep lol. Don't hesitate to buy from Celestus they will provide pics, more info, and respond asap.
