The only pet store I know of around here doesn't have a great selection. I am wondering if anyone knows of anywhere around Seattle, Washington that has a good selection.

Not many petstores have a selection, and even if they do, they very rarely know how to properly care for Ts. Try an online breeder. It sounds like a crazy idea at first, shipping spiders through the mail :) but the spiders I've gotten that way looked healthier after flying several hundred miles than than the one I brought home from a pet store.

also try the sale section of the boards. Id yellowpage search your area also and try to find speciality stores instead of chains. Some still wont be good, but there are decent stores out there, as well as many online dealers.

Petstores aren't the best way to go. THere are many members here on the boards and dealers selling Ts to anywhere in the US for much cheaper then any petstore.

A Place for Pets - Burien WA (had a few dandy's)
Fish Gallery and pets - Renton WA (pretty good selection)
Little Amazon - Seattle WA (on Aurora (99))
There is a place just south of Tacoma,I forget the name but they had a couple.

What are you looking for?:razz:

Not looking for much in particular, just trying to get a more open selection. I live quite close to A Place For Pets and that's where I got my G. Aureostriata. Two people who work there are really great for tarantula's being owner's themselves. Online breeders and dealers would be an option but it's hard to explain why it's not an option for me. Once again thank you all a lot.:p

That place mentionned on Aurora street (Hwy 99) usually has a decent selection...he keeps his T's horribly, and the place smells like urine, but the owner is foreign and you can usually talk him down in price... (and he's got the cheapest crickets around in my experience).

There's another guy who owns a shop kitty-korner from the Fred Meyer in Bellevue. He has some pretty good bargains and selection as well, but he's kind of a jerk. (not sure of the place's name, but i know he's in the book).

Denny's Pet World, in Kirkland also has a selection of T's... but they can be overpriced. They keep them well and the T's are quite healthy.
