I recently decided to purchase my first tarantula and, after plenty of research, decided get a G.pulchra from Tom. Delivery was extremely fast and my tarantula arrived in great condition. Unfortunately, I recieved the incorrect species. I emailed Tom and recieved a response in minutes. Not only did he send out my G.pulchra the next day, he also offered to send a housing set up for the T I had already recieved, as well as care tips since I was not familiar with the species. My T arrived today in perfect condition!

Overall I had an extremely positive experience being a first time T owner and I highly recommend this breeder for any first time buyers. The prices are reasonable and I can without a doubt say his animals are well taken care of. Should I be in the market for another T in the future I will definitely be purchasing from Tom!

Everything arrived perfectly healthy! Super fast delivery. Very responsive. Tom has great reviews and Hardcore Arachnids does not not disappoint. All of the spiders I ordered were in great shape and I got some bonus stickers. Tom uses the good paper towels and offers free reading material with the newspaper packing. 10/10 will order again.

Pros
  • Great selection of Tarantulas
  • Crazy Fast Shipping
  • Slings came packed with substrate, easy rehouse!
Cons
  • None!
I've heard a lot of great things about Tom Patterson over the years and had been eyeing the shop for the last few months before finally making a purchase.

In particular A.Simoensi was in stock, which I haven't seen up for sale anywhere else. Love these guys and didn't want to miss my chance. I had my eye on a couple of other tarantulas but waited too long and they went out of stock so I pulled the trigger yesterday morning.

The tiny 1/4'' slings came packed already hiding in a burrow in some substrate, with some moss packed over the entrance. They vial was already an appropriate size for the slings, and already being in a nice burrow meant all I had to do for unpacking was remove the moss, and offer a bit of water. I appreciate that not having to rehouse them into a new vial as they are very tiny and fragile at this size.

Feel super fortunate to get my hands on a pair of these before they were gone. I was also pleasantly surprised to have these in my hands the very next day after putting in the order.

Thanks Tom, would purchase again! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled to see if you get more B.Klassi in stock. ;)

Thank you so much Tom!
