Pros
  • Present throughout every step of the way. VERY communicative.
  • Captive-Bred Tarantulas
  • FANTASTIC packaging. Tarantula is clearly labeled and guide comes along with unpacking your specimen.
  • Many items in stock to purchase at your heart's content.
I'm amazed with how well my purchasing experience was with fearnottarantulas. From the second that I bought it, the staff were quick to inform and confirm of such - explaining the steps of packaging and quickly making sure I had wanted what I purchased (GBB sling, $65 + $45 shipping). The sling arrived packaged very carefully, healthy, and quick to acclimate. It is clear their animals are treated with care. I'm no paid reviewer, this is coming from an average Joe - I sincerely recommend purchasing from this dealer.

I purchased 2 slings and also got a freebie. One of the purchased slings had been very sluggish out of the box but ate a couple times before it flipped over to molt, never actually started molting, and died within the 30 day live guarantee policy. I had to send over some pictures, and they agreed to replace the spider. The 2nd spider I received is MUCH more lively (yep, it bolted) and I have no worries about this one. I absolutely would purchase from Fear Not again. Their 30 day policy really saved me some heartache and they didn't make it difficult for me to follow up on it.

Pros
  • great price, great selection, fantastic communication, excellent shipping, convenient, accepts orders online, sends email notifications about desired species on your list
Cons
  • wish they had a more condensed text-based species list on the website to search as they get more stock in, but the site is lovely
I've placed orders four or five times from FNT over the past year and every single time, they really knock it out of the park. Tanya's fantastic, her team is great, and the selection is amazing.

Most recently I picked up a Hapalotremus albipes, a Cardiopelma mascatum, A Dolichothele diamantinensis, and picked another Neischnocolus sp. ami freebie. I added a Sahydroaraneus raja to my order a week later when it became available in a shipment, and I love that I can add to my order up until 24 hours before shipping.

The shipping packaging is always fantastic and the individual spiders arrive in solid drams. The shipping is amazing for the price, and I receive updates all along the process. All spiderlings arrived healthy and were rehoused immediately.

The H albipes is amazing, very active, and has already molted. I love it! The Sahydroaraneus raja was on my unicorn list, and it's a spunky little thing that made itself at home immediately and molted last night. The other three are also doing great.

Very happy with my experience and will buy from them again!

Pros
  • - Communication - Shipping - Selection - Freebies
Cons
  • get this Cons section out of here!
This was my second purchase from Fear Not, and both times have been excellent and smooth experiences. Communication with their shipping coordinator BJ was clear and effective when I asked for shipment to be delayed a week due to being out of state on vacation, and the terms and conditions of the purchase transaction were crystal clear from start to finish. Ended up with three beautiful new slings happily settling into their new homes.

Bonus: Fear Not's Freebie offerings are awesome! I always check what they have available as freebies, and if there's something I really really want I'll try to build my order around that.
