  • Reasonable price
  • Communicates
Cons
  • USPS
  • Shipped not labeled as live animals
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.
