Sometimes we have to look online to obtain our tarantulas. I have a couple of places that I have ordered from that I highly recommend. Don’t get me wrong, you can get tarantulas at local stores but certain tarantulas are harder to come by so you have to look to the internet to find them. It helps to know who is a great place to buy from. I have 3 I personal trust. My tarantulas arrived alive and in good health and are thriving. I’ve done the online shopping at least 4 times.
First one is Ken the Bug Guy. Very awesome. He is on the west coast. He has a vast selection. I just got my Regal Jumping Spider from him yesterday and she is doing wonderfully. I know several people that order from him. I’ve gotten a total of 6 tarantulas from him. My spider bro has gotten the same I do believe. We generally order together since we opt for overnight shipping. I do recommend overnight shipping. He guarantees live arrivals. If they aren’t alive you can contact him for a replacement.
Second is Fear Not Tarantulas. They are on the east coast. We’ve done only 1 order from them. Overnight of course. We each got orange baboon tarantulas and pink zebra beautys. The PZBs are difficult to come by so we opted to go with them. They came in alive and still thriving. My OBT is getting larger. My PZB is still a wee one but they are dwarf tarantulas. I recommend them as well.
Third is J & T Reptiles and Exotics. We’ve done 1 online order with them but as they are in Florida we see them at Repticon 3 times a year in Tampa. Great people to talk to. I would say 8 of my tarantulas are from them. All are doing wonderfully.
