Got a great looking T. Blondi from Tanya at FearNotTarantulas, the packing was great, the spider was exactly the size she said it was. They had great pre-sales info as well.

Will definitely buy again!

Pros
  • captive-bred stock
  • You can pick your own freebie.
I had been eying the Theraphosinae sp. "Panama" slings they had for sale, but I couldn't quite justify spending that amount of money. There was a 20% "tarantula appreciation day" sale, so I pulled the trigger. I selected Kochiana brunnipes as my freebie, because I like dwarf tarantulas.

I was a little disappointed that they couldn't ship to my house -- the nearest FedEx center is about 30-45 minutes away -- but I understand they want to avoid a situation where spiders are left unattended in the heat. (The local heat and humidity are oppressive in the summer.)

When I returned home from FedEx today, I unboxed my slings. The packaging was very good -- amply padded and still cool. The unpacking instructions were a nice touch, although I personally did not need them, as I am an experienced keeper.

The slings were lively, and they promptly began exploring their new homes. Currently, both are feasting on diced mealworm.
Great dealer - fair prices, large stock, and communicative!

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.
