Hi! I just wanted to compliment all of you on your fantastic customer service. I ordered four slings from you, and all arrived safely and in perfect condition today. All are sitting happily in their new homes. Believe it or not, the one that gave me the most trouble during the rehouse was the g. pulchra! No aggressive behavior at all, but the little baby took a flying leap out of the vial onto my arm and was bound and determined to stay there. Some gentle negotiations were required. I expected the c. fimbriatus to be the trouble maker of the group but that one went the smoothest. 😂. Anyway thank you all so much for guiding me through shipping etc. I will certainly be ordering from you again and spreading the good word on your excellent service. Thanks again!

Absolutely stunning naturalistic decor with an inviting atmosphere. The staff here are so helpful and friendly. They happily answered any question I had and shared tons of helpful info. Fear Not is genuinely the most generous shop as well. I’ve gotten so many awesome spiders as freebies with my purchases.
Caleb Repko recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. July 17, 2023
Best customer service I've ever had from a specialty shop. It is also a beautiful store that is good enough to justify the visit by itself, with a large selection of beautiful Tarantulas. I will absolutely be back and recommend it to anyone looking for a Tarantula, local or otherwise.

I haven't had a chance to post but I just wanted to say how amazing our visit to Fear Not Tarantulas was. George was so great to talk too as well as the staff. He showed us around answering any questions we had and was great with our son. We ended up with 4 slings that I'm sure my wife has already posted here. If you're reading this George you'll be happy to know the Lucas The Spider plushy you gave our son has become his new comfort object.
If you're ever in the VA beach area you NEED to stop at Fear Not

After a few days with my T and beetles I can write a more detailed review! FNT responded really fast and I am really happy with my GBB sling. The smooth beetles I got as a freebie are very fun to watch, and are a great contrast to the tarantulas that we cannot always hold. I will be placing a second larger order in the near future! The sling was moving amazingly and started exploring the second I lifted the moss cap. The packaging was very secure and everything was easy to open. The sling and beetles were packed very comfortably in the moss. I was pleased to see them all in such perfect health. When I offered the GBB food it took it and ate it first try! I am very new to this hobby and this was my first experience with an online breeder, Let alone ordering living things. I was skeptical because I am not super knowledgeable about the hobby yet. For my first sling this has been a very easy process, a process I originally thought was going to be very difficult and risky. I am really happy that I went to FNT and not an alternative! I feel secure knowing they are always available to help! 🕷️11/10 buying again! ❤️

I have yet to go into the actual store for it’s 18 hours away, but I will tell you I do hope we can make that trip. The customer service is always top notch while dealing with them online through emails. I am so excited to meet everyone and have that amazing customer service in person. My last order I had to have it shipped to the “local” FedEx pick up center for the day time temps exceeded the safe ranges. My local FedEx is 50 minutes both ways. I was worried if something were wrong I’d be over the Two hour window to indicate any issues. (All in driving) I was told I would get extended time and to be safe on my travels. I, of course, had absolutely no issues and my spiders were all perfect and are all still doing well! All my Tarantulas come from this place! I have 17 and only 2 are not from fear not. My future ones will definitely be from here, as well! Hands down the best place 💕☺️

I bought some tarantulas from them a few years back, I realized I never gave them the good reviews they deserve. they were great with communicating, the slings I bought were healthy and grew up to be gorgeous spiders. I have vouched for them to many people and hope to buy from them again in the future.

I have always received great customer service from Fear Not with my shipping orders and I thought that my experience with them couldn't possibly get any better. I was wrong. After years of wanting to visit I was finally able to and it was everything I could have hoped for. The store is clean and well organized but it's their staff that puts the experience over the top. They are so friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to talk to. It's really no wonder why they're the best in the business.

I got my delivery date mixed up with another order I had in transit at the time and ended up picking up a day late as a result. Despite this, all of my spiders arrived safe and sound. They were perfectly packed and appear to be healthy and well fed. I added starter packs for two which are wonderful. I don’t know if they sell their enclosures separately or not but I’d absolutely buy more of them if they’re available. They’re crystal clear and included substrate, a plastic plant, cork, and appropriately sized feeders. They also included some set up and care information with clear instructions including information on their guarantee and how to be sure not to void it.
I highly recommend them to anyone looking for tarantulas- they have an excellent selection, the ordering process is simple, communication is great, prices are fantastic, and their freebie offers are generous. They are just a wonderful company all around and I couldn’t be happier with my order.

I just received my first shipment from Fear not, and it will definitely not be my last. They were very professional from beginning until I had my tarantulas shipped.

Setting up delivery was a little tricky but they were very patient and worked it out with me. I received my order today and was beyond pleased. All arrived healthy and alive. Was very impressed with the size of most of them. The only disappointment I had was that I wish I could've ordered more. Will definitely be back for more.

Stopped in this place to check it out and left with these two arachnid friends. It’s rare to find a store this good. The staff here was super nice and helpful to my kids. The animals also looked well cared for. The other notable thing is that this place is not just a pet store, they have educational information around the shop and even a microscope to look at the moltings. This place is definitely worth a stop for sure!

My name is Magali and I recently purchased my first two Tarantulas from here and I cannot thank them enough for not only providing me with information but were very kind and friendly. Definitely recommend visiting if you're interested in adopting your first tarantula.
Michael Hammaker May 22, 2023
Such a pleasant and helpful shop! I was interested in getting a millipede after looking at their website, and I decided to go to this store in person. The staff was friendly and helpful. I was shown to some millipedes and was offered a few full terrarium set ups. When I explained I only needed a single millipede and some supplies, the staff made sure all my needs were met. In addition I was given some educational materials on tarantulas and some helpful tips on the millipede. I will be back when I need supplies or decide its time to get another new pet.

I've only been in the hobby for about 6 months. I've been wanting to visit Fear Not for a couple months. But living in WV makes it about a 4 and a half hour trip, one way. My wife and I were going to the Georgia Aquarium for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and decided to stop at Fear Not on our way home from Atlanta. The night before leaving Atlanta we found on their website that they were closed on Thursday and Fridays. So we left Atlanta at 3:45am to get to their shop before they closed on Wednesday. Finally after a 9 hour drive we arrived to find they had just recently changed their hours and are now closed on Wednesdays as well. Being tired and upset from driving 9 hours to get there to only find they were closed, my wife decided to call to see if we could make an online order and just pick them up instead of them shipping them. They answered and actually opened the store for us to come in and shop. We left with 5 new tarantulas and some beetles. Along with alot of free shirts and other stuff. They are great people and we will definitely shop here again and possibly even visit again.

I've purchased from a reptile show in the past and online orders. today I've added to my online order which put me above the promo where they offer free shipping. I love this company, the shipping was already paid for so I just left it be. a short while later I saw a refund from them and I was bummed (thought, oh my order was denied or something happened) sp I opened the message and they refunded my original shipping charges. I did not ask for it, but their team was just on top of their orders. these guys are amazing and I love them! every experience I've had is positive and all my pets have done fabulous. seriously, such a great company!

The staff is amazing—friendly and thorough, and everything went smoothly. It’s been 1 1/2 years for our in-house purchase (both babies doing great!), and just shy of a year for our other baby (also doing great!) Thanks for great experiences and for all that you do.

I highly recommend this company for all my Tarantula needs. Always remember kids... you measure your Tarantula using leg span.... not their body. You go from the very front leg.. to the very back opposite leg.
also.... don't threaten to "show up" at the shop because of an issue. their customer service is excellent.. if they're is an actual issue.. they'll resolve it.

They're policies are clearly posted and easy to understand. They offer you all the information and tools you need to be successful with your T.

Our new arachnid babies (Gooty Sapphire and Brazillian Dwarf Pink Leg) arrived healthy, happy, and already getting acclimated to their enclosures. Chhinnamasta (the sapphire) is very docile and easy at handling. I'm remis to handle Jaguar (dwarf pink leg) for the time being, given her small fragile stature, but she too is spritely. Fear Not pampers their arthropods, and it is evident; we will be purchasing again. ^-^

I got them from the latest mystery event and I have to say it was well worth it, I can’t wait to watch them grow. Would definitely recommend and I will use in the future
Zachary Hoffmann recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Feb 25 2022
First time ever ordering Tarantulas online, and I am more than impressed! I ordered four slings, and they all arrived perfectly fine! The packaging was immaculate for shipping especially into cold weather areas like Wisconsin where I'm from. Will Definitely Order Again!
Crystal Cobb recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Feb 14 2022
I order a Spiderling from them and I received it and they did a great job with packaging and the best day it it a death curl and I contacted them and they are replacing it. I am so happy with their customer service and I can’t wait to get my tarantula they are so great
Jennifer Fisher recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Feb 13 2022
They refunded the extra I paid to have it shipped home, because the temp, dipped with out me asking. They sent me an email with the address of the closest hub and a date and time, and asked if it would work for me. T arrived snug in container with a heat pack separated from the T so it wouldn’t cook. I plan on purchasing from here again

Desirée Bryant recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Jan 27 2022
Ordered from their website without realizing I lived an hour or less from their shop! I was able to pick up my babies instead and I’m glad I did. Their location is absolutely beautiful. The shop is absolutely amazing and I ended up coming home with my two babies plus one more, I just couldn’t help myself. They’re amazing!
Erik Auclair recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Jan 27 2022
The shipping process was absolutely incredible. I've never dealt with a company that waited to ship until YOU were good with the details. It made me worry that much less with having cold temperatures. I will definitely be ordering from FNT again.

Wonderful people who genuinely care about the animals they sell. I've purchased from FNT twice online and both times found myself impressed by their professionalism, the care they took in making sure my babies got to me safely, and their willingness to answer any questions or concerns I may have had. Highly recommend, especially for those who may be nervous about purchasing a tarantula online and having it shipped.

I purchased my first tarantula’s from FNT in December of last year and it went off without a hitch. I ordered another batch a couple of months later, again, without a hitch. I live in Florida and went to Maryland to visit my friend for Thanksgiving. On my trip back to Florida I added a trip to the FNT store in Virginia Beach to purchase 5 more T slings and a juvenile GBB. The people there were FREAKING AWESOME! The store is so clean and their displays were phenomenal. It was well worth the additional 5 hours added to my trip. FNT is an A+ business and establishment that I would recommend to anyone. Thank you FNT for helping me with my new hobby, you guys rock!!

Wonderful, sweet, informative people. Packages arrive quickly, safely and on time. They offer different shipping options to fit your needs, and take extra precautions in all weather to make sure your babies arrive safely. Make sure to read any disclaimers or pop ups they have on the page, it will always be a detailed explanation of shipping and the schedule. Will continue to come back time and time again to keep growing my collection. So far I have 6, 3 being from these lovely people! Highly would recommend for beginners to the most experienced! I love my babies so much and Fear Not!

I live in the laurel highlands of the Appalachian mountains in PA. We are currently getting only single digits. We've ordered multiple times with fear not. And once the truck got stuck on the highway in Tennessee. But they gave updates and it was only a day late and all the Ts were healthy and alive. Fear Not is, in my opinion, the most reputable seller there is on the east coast!

Our second grader had been doing research and really wanted a tarantula for Christmas. She was so pleased with her tliltocatl schroederi spiderling! As first-timers, we were thankful for the “complete package” option. Used Fear Not based on a recommendation from a friend. Great experience with shipping to the Midwest (well-packed with heat pack) and instructions. Thank you!

My very first time ordering from them and it was a smooth experience for me. I first ordered 5 slings then decided to sss another one on and had no issues at all. All my babies arrived safe nit one single issue with any of them.
On a side not having been in the hobby for a long time I know sizes are approximate and not actual so take that into consideration. I only had one that seemed a little small but as I said it was an approximate size so no big deal. I also got one that was longer than listed should I complain about that? na I like Fear Not!!

I love ordering from Fear Not. Out of all the vendors I have ordered from, they are the most consistent and transparent. They offer a freebie with each order, and my most recent had an additional spiderling in it on top of the freebie. All the Ts arrived safe and comfortable as always and the whole process is very smooth. Thank you Fear Not! 😁

I recently got into the hobby of keeping Tarantulas. I got my first T in June and decided to try my hands at keeping slings. I heard amazing reviews from Fear Not. So, I figured let’s try it! I have to say I was blown away at how they keep in contact with you on your order. Even after it was shipped out I knew when it left the facility. I appreciate this so much! My slings came all healthy and ready! I waited a few days and both ate well and are doing spooder things! All in all a great experience and hands down We will definitely be ordering again. 10/10 customer service
Thanks so much for the great work!

Sam Ryan recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Aug 31 2021
Communications were speedy and they always answered any questions I had. Fear not cares about their animals and will not ship to door if it's too hot or cold. I never mind the 30 minute drive to my FedEx distribution center to pick up my tarantulas. They know their stuff and they are quick to rectify any mistakes. amazing.
Bradley Hall doesn't recommend Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Aug 20 2021
Canceled order, little to no communication via email... Read all shipping policies thoroughly and was told even after paying for FEDEX address delivery to a commercial address that they couldn't ship in temps over 75?!?!? Lots of tarantula species experience temps far beyond this for longer periods of time than 24 hours in an 'insulated' box. Seller offered the tarantulas I purchased at a 50% discount then canceled my order and used the same tarantulas for another promotion online!!! Website says "Tarantulas Shipped to your door" when it should say "Tarantulas shipped to a FedEx near you..." I even requested that he hold the packages BC my nearest FedEx pick-up center is a 45 min drive ONE WAY! No response just a canceled order. Held my money for over 2 weeks and couldn't even respond quickly or reasonably.... Buyer beware
Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc
Greetings Mr. Hall
I’m very glad to go through each of your concerns below, but there are quite a lot of misconceptions in your review that are important to rectify.
1. We DO ship when temperatures are over 75, but only to a FedEx facility that accepts live animals. Everyone who ships animals has certain guidelines based on the animal they ship. We have these guidelines posted on our website in many places that cannot be missed. If someone does not agree with the guidelines we use, they are welcome to find another retailer who has different ones. We know tarantulas experience higher temperatures in the wild, however, they do not experience temperatures of over 100 while packed in a small vial in a box. We also know that a FedEx truck can get too hot for the safe transportation of spiderlings very quickly. (see the chart below) This is especially true for those who have an approximate delivery time later in the day. Our DOA rate is well below what is average, and we know to keep it that way it can cause some inconvenience for our customers. We have many customers who drive an hour or more, one way, to pick up their live animal delivery.
2. We have over 500 of the species you ordered, so no, we did not have to cancel your order to use them for another promotion. It actually is a lot of fun for us to have sales such as the one you took advantage of so people can get these animals at great prices. Your order was canceled because you refused to pick up your order at a FedEx center after going back and forth with our shipping coordinator, which brings us to the third point …
3. We use a ticketing system for email so we are able to see all communication. I see we responded to every one of your emails the same day or the next if it was late at night. We sent shipping details to you the day after you ordered, on the first of August, but as it clearly states in that email, we do not ship orders out until we receive a reply back letting us know those arrangements work for them. This is another thing we do for the safety of the animals as well as for the convenience of our customers so they are not caught off guard by the deliver of live animals. In your case, we had to change from home delivery to delivery to a FedEx station because you chose home delivery at checkout even though it indicates we cannot ship to a home when temperatures are over 75.
We have a pop-up that is activated when a customer puts something in their cart. In order for the pop up to close, it has to be clicked on. We make it clear what our shipping schedule is so there is the opportunity to not purchase if the shipping schedule is not good for the customer. I have included a screenshot of that pop up below.
I have also included a screenshot of what customers see at checkout when choosing a shipping method. We clearly state what our guidelines are when they are choosing home delivery or delivery to a FedEx center. Though it indicates 70 is the cut off, we go to 75 as long as other conditions are good.
I gotta say Mr. Hall, it is kind of strange to receive a bad review from a customer complaining about the policies we have that are very clearly stated and seen by all customers before they even purchase. If a customer has made it clear they are not willing to abide by the guidelines we have in place to ship living creatures safely, yes, we will cancel their order, but there was certainly much communication before that happened. We are glad to work with customers who appreciate the precautions we take to keep the animals we ship safe.

We visited from out of state. Couldn’t be more happy with the experience. At first you’re a little disappointed with the selection. I believe everyone probably walks in , hopping everything they have on display is for sale.
But that’s simply just not the case. I think the real collectors, really appreciate what this place is. It’s ultimately what you wish your own Tarantula room looks like. It’s one of the finest collections on display. You can come in and experience this collection with a highly attentive, knowledgeable staff. Then have the ability to take home a piece of it. It is brilliant! I wish only they had a lounge or just anything that forces me to stay in there longer. I’d like to thank the staff and the owner for taking the time to really make our visit special. We can’t wait to return
Mack Adams recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. July 25 2021
So this is probably going to be a long post....reader beware.
So my wife and I drove up to VB to visit FNT from NC for my birthday.
Let me just start with I absolutely cannot rave enough about them. Oh. My. God. From when I walked in the door until I walked out of the door was by far the best experience in any store I've ever had. Their customer service is top notch. Their selection is top notch. Their knowledge is top notch. I asked for advice on several species and all of my questions were answered fully. I could tell they genuinely care about the hobby and the newbies, like myself, coming into it. 20/10 would recommend and will absolutely make the trip back.
They even had a birthday bag for me when I got there full of awesome goodies, including a Hapalopus sp. Colombia, which was on my wishlist!
It ended up being an amazing experience all around and even though I went up with the thought of coming home with my first two tarantulas, I came home with my first four. I purchased two, got a freebie for the purchase and then the birthday freebie 😁 they sure know how get you hooked in the hobby and wanting more 🤣
My wife was not overly thrilled about what she thought was going to be 1 turning into 4. But holy crap I think I'm starting to convert her. I heard her get up this morning to go to the bathroom and heard her stop off at my office for a minute. She was checking in on the new babies 😭
Needless to say, go there. Right now. It's an amazing place, full of absolutely amazing people and I cannot wait to go back.
Samuel Ossa recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. July 11 2021
This is the best tarantula dealer in the U.S.A
They have a huge variety of beautiful healthy tarantulas and they regularly make group projects and special deals such as mystery tarantulas. Currently, they created the Brachy bunch. Where you can get 5 brachypelma and 3 tlitocatl! Only for $219! At Fear not, the tarantulas are the priority, and they will never ship when the spider is close to a molt or if it is too hot or cold. At their location here In Virginia Beach, they have excellent customer service. Thry have all thr correct prices. Not overpriced, and not insanely underpriced either. When I bought my first old world, I was greeted and asked what I was looking for. I told her I was looking for an H. gigas as my first old world. We had a nice coberstaion about what our favorite tarantulas and she said her personal favorite old worlds, which are thr H. pulchripes and the
M. balfouri. Amazing. I left with a
B. albiceps, thr H. gigas,, and an adorable K. Brunnipes. Which just ate a fruit fly last night. All of the people working there love their job and are all friends with each other. I'm going to buy that Brachy bunch now because I just can't resist.
Best, place, ever.

Just received my GBB sling from “Fear not”. What a hearty little thing. Been home 12 hours and already webbing up the place. Packaged well. Communication top notch. And everything went smooth. Well except when I unpackaged him he was chilling right by the lid so I just barely opened it, held it in the new enclosure with tongs while I pulled the lid off. And she ran right up the tongs as I, extremely calmly, lol, turned the tongs around and got her to walk onto some corkbark. She’s home now and cozying in. An all around GREAT experience. Thank you Fear not!

Jon Rothweiler recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. March 9 2021·
All around a perfect experience. I was big into the hobby in Highschool, left for the marine corps and left all my Ts to my zoology teacher. Went years without owning a spider. Eventually got a g rosea that I had for 8 years. He passed recently and it was weird not having a spider. I did some online shopping and stumbled across Fear Not. I was immediately impressed. You can tell they care about what they do and have a true passion for it and what to share that passion with others. I ordered 3 slings through them. Everything went exactly as it was supposed to. They showed up healthy and beautiful. I’ll order more when I can convince the wife. She was iffy on 3. She’ll come around 😉
Ja Huff recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc.March 7 2021
We have ordered 75+ Ts from Fear Not. Not one DOA. Customer service is amazing and they put the animals first. I continue to use them for my main source of Ts. Awesome selections of unique species as well.
Brittany Kurtzman recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. March 2 2021
I ordered a P. Metallica from this store and received an OBT for free. Both spiders arrived beautiful, energetic, and healthy. Their Live Arrival Guarantee is the best I've ever seen offered.

Sooo, let’s just say.. My mother ordered something from Fear Not Tarantula ... I didn’t even know she knew how to run a pc.. but it was my bday this past week and she knew I was excited about going to a expo to find a couple of species.. apparently my mom took notes and went to the website and bought a female a GBB.. i told her yesterday morning about the female GBBs on the site. I was confused because there has to be someone helping her because I got a email.. about the order on but on my work email xD... i through it was a mistake..so thanks everyone... or whoever is helping her. I’m blessed and shocked. But the freebie is something I had no idea about.. long story short 2 people have bought me a species and both times it wasn’t the correct species. So I ended up with a T no one knows what it is and a Hentzi...but neither where brachypelma... super upset soooo apparently she said she got one in like sure you did mom lol.. neither T was bought from Fear Not.. just gifts from Petco...picture added of mystery T xD
Crys M Santi recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Jan 25 2021 ·
the best part about that place is their knowledge about the species that they carry. ingot there right when they were about to feed the Ts and even while she was feeding them she was very willing to show us and tell us about the ts...
all of them looked very healthy and in very good enclosures and saw a few eat very well.
I walked out with 3 and will never get a T anywhere else
thank you fear not tarantulas

Renee Zeveroux Roach recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc.Jan 13 2021
I am new to Tarantulas and was very worried about getting slings. So much so in fact that I canceled my first order in fear that I wasn’t ready. Easiest process ever. And they sent super helpful links to prepare me for future slings! I decided we were ready to add babies to our family and I am beside myself with the care and quality of my new slings. The habitats came with detailed instructions and everything I needed to keep my babies happy and healthy while they transition and grow. All three showed up alive and well and all very active. I am very pleased with my entire experience and will be ordering again after these slings grow! I highly recommend this company and will encourage family and friends to order through them! Thank you for making everything easy and for all the helpful information you provide! My daughters and I could not be happier!

This company is simply amazing. I had to do a last min address change to a different state as we were doing the shipping confirmation. Just a few hours later, my tarantula was at FedEx, waiting to be picked up. I don't know how they did it, but wow. You guys are awesome, and so is my O. philippinus. THANK YOU!
Bethany Langve recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Dec 3, 2020
The communication from Fear Not Tarantulas is incredible! I was very thankful they communicated with my regarding shipping from before my tarantulas shipped until after I received them. My 4 tarantulas arrived expertly packed and safe. The included unpacking instructions were very helpful for a first time online orderer. After a week all my tarantulas are all doing exceptionally well and I couldn’t be happier. I will be ordering from Fear Not again!
Erika Rippy recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Dec 1, 2020
I went into the store today to purchase a T but wasn’t sure what I wanted to add to my collection. The sales associate was so incredibly helpful (I wish I got his name name.) He even interacted with my younger children and answered all 582 questions from them. 😂 I couldn’t be any happier with my purchase and with my overall experience. Each enclosure looked very clean and you could tell they really care here. I’m so excited I found you guys and we will definitely be back soon!
Patrick Wahleithner recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Nov 25, 2020
This was my first T, and it went so smooth from purchase to delivery. My Gooty Sapphire arrived healthy, and energetic. I would recommend anyone looking to go through Fear Not Tarantula. Thank you for the great experience, and the beautiful T.
Alex Jae Emerson recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Nov 20, 2020
Healthy, active tarantulas! I have bought 8 of them and they are all still doing well. When I had questions about a tarantula I purchase that I couldn't find any information on and they helped me out. They're so nice and have amazing customer service. Hopefully one day I can visit the physical location.
Note: I wish there was a 'favorite' button on the site so I could have like a wish list on the site since I will probably only be buying from FNT from now on
Jared Ferguson recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Nov 19, 2020

experience was amazing, we purchased two complete setups and got a freebie as well. I’ve never felt so confident going into a new animal, and FNT is fully to thank. They were there every step of the way and made sure we knew exactly what would happen in the shipping process. Spiders arrived alive , healthy, and active and are all settling well into their new homes! Having such small slings is terrifying but knowing i have access to an amazing set of people if I ever had questions helps ease all my anxiety’s! Thank you Fear not!
Gage Smith recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Nov 12, 2020
Purchased a Grammostola iheringi (Entre Rios) complete package from them. After confirming I agreed and understood shipping policy my tarantula shipped out a few days later on 11/10, and arrived 11/11. everything was well packed, insulated and live and accounted for. The tarantula was the size in the description, and I'm extremely happy.
Kristen Lawrance recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Nov 11, 2020
After a bad experience ordering tarantulas from another online service I swore I wouldn't do it again, but I'm SO glad I did! The entire process was super simple and I don't think I've received better communication from anyone I've ordered anything from ever. The tarantulas arrived very well packaged and all healthy. I was updated by both Fear Not and FedEx every time my package moved. Wonderful experience and I highly recommend them!
Francis Macadat recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. Nov 7, 2020
Yes I Do. Friendly staff. Great displays of the adult form of the animals that you can purchase of slings. They have enclosures that are pre-packed for your new animal to go home with. Affordable pricing for the animals on sale. I would suggest to come in and check them out!

It’s my first time ordering tarantulas onlinr and especially without knowing the company too well. I have to say though, the experience with FNT was amazing! Kept me updated with shipping and what was to happen next, a cute little prompt of how to set them up, and they were neatly and safely secured so no damage would happen on their journey to me. I’ll definitely be ordering from them again in the future!

Mom to a tarantula loving son. Tanya was amazing at talking me through the unboxing as my son was still in school and I didn’t want to keep them in their transport containers longer than need be. Great company and wonderful people to work with.
Marleah Koi Cabano recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. December 3, 2019 at 9:59 PM
Best customer service, hands down! That alone will have me coming back, and I haven’t even gotten my first Ts from them yet. Long story short – ordered 1 spider. Hubby surprisingly talked me into getting a 2nd one 10 mins later, so ordered my 2nd. Next day I realized there was a minor error on the dates, I knew what they meant, but wanted to confirm. BJ was extremely helpful and made sure I was refunded the 2nd shipping charge since they will be shipped together. To be honest, I didn’t even think about the shipping! Haha, I am happy he caught it! Thank you again, BJ, and FNT staff! Can’t wait for my Ts to get here!?

I got two slings, chromatopelma cyaneopubescens and tliltocatl vagans formerly brachypelma vagans, and they arrived in perfect shape and both are doing great! Temps were too high in my region and they reached out and helped me get them here safely. 10/10
Cody Chronister recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc.November 5, 2019 ·
As a first time keeper I have been very impressed with Tanya and the rest of the staff at FNT. The sling arrived well packed and was immediately showing signs of life. The provided enclosure was perfect and the sling went right in. The included feeders are the perfect size and I should have some nice take downs soon. The thing that stood out to me the most was how concerned they are about their slings. From the start everything was about making sure the sling arrived healthy and alive. They quickly remediated a shipping issue even if it meant an inconvenience because to them the tarantula comes first. I will definitely be coming back to them as I expand my collection.
Alexis Roldan-Santiago recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. October 30, 2019 ·

Karl Reiser recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. August 2, 2019 ·
I have been raising and breeding Tarantulas for over 10 yrs. I have been skimming Fear Not’s available list since they came online. I have specifically watching for Brachylpelma Schroederi to show up somewhere in the states. I have been really hesitant to purchase Ts from anybody in the summertime because I live in Vegas. The temperatures are so hot. When the B Schroederi showed up , I had to purchase, summer or not. Fear Not was very accommodating, the communication was beyond excellent, packaging was very good, and the delivery to Fed ex hub was timely. My Ts showed up in great health. I truly could not have been happier. This experience has earned them a lot of future business.Thanks to Fear Not and their staff!
Angela Schiel Ferguson recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. July 27, 2019 ·

I ordered two slings after having issues with another breeder.
I had to have a friend place the order as they were a gift to keep them secret. fear not was great about making sure I was the person picking up even though someone else paid.
they were packed so SO well! clearly labeled box. large lime colored sticker point to which way they needed to face. came with habitat recommendations of set up even though I did not buy a kit for my slings. also had some other great info. personally wrote a thank you to my friend and I for ordering. also one sling had it’s most recent molt labeled on its enclosure which I personally was so happy to get.
thanks again! can not wait to order in the future!

I would highly recommend Fear Not Tarantulas. Their customer Service is awesome. Unlike some places, the safety of the tarantulas come before anything else. they won’t send a tarantula that is about to molt in the mail. The Fear Not team is quick to answer questions and concerns. They are one of my favorite businesses to shop from. Packing is on point. Tarantulas are healthy and look great. One of the great things is they still have LAG even during carrier delays. I’d give them 1 million stars out of 10.🙂

Great customer service, good tracking info, apiderlings were very active as soon as I unpacked them. My 1/2 inch hysterocrates gigas ate 2 fruit flies as soon as I put him in his enclosure. The 1 1/2 inch lasiodora parahybana is lining part of the enclosure already with silk. Both active and looking really good.
The staff at Fear Not is awesome. There is definitely a lot of care that goes into the packaging and shipping of your future pet

One of the best business experiences I’ve ever had not just in dealing with tarantulas but anywhere with anything. Tanya is a friendly person who genuinely cares and gets how business should be run. My GBB spiderlings arrived safe and energetic across the country and through below freezing weather. Their packaging is the best in the business.
Kara Ashlea Bell recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. January 13 · 2019
Fantastic customer service and a great selection! When my Theraphosa blondi was recieved dead because of a shipping error, Tanya did not hesitate to replace it as soon as possible. Both times my spiders were packaged very well. I love my new babies and will recommend Fear Not to anyone!
Lori J. Renaldi recommends Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. January 9 · 2019
I ordered 3 slings:

More often than not, a majority of my appreciation for a business is based in the customer experience. If you’re looking for selection, Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc. is one of the top invert distributors in the country, but what Tanya and her team do exceptionally well is provide an individualized, remarkable experience for their customer.
I appreciate the way that the Fear Not team has reach out to me during purchases to ensure my buying experience was a great one. That’s what every customer wants when they buy something – a feeling of mutual appreciate – that removes the transactional nature of buying.
Consider saving and buying a big order. Freebies are included starting $75, currently, (H. Gigas) and the higher purchase amount feebies are incredible!
Thank you for everything Fear Not. I will be waiting for the next mystery boxes!

I wanted to get 2 but I only got one and now I see they are available again! I’m picking up another and a couple more! I’m going to keep coming back for more!

Can’t say enough great things about Fear Not. After reading a lot of reviews, I had incredibly high expectations, and they still managed to exceed those expectations. The web site is laid out incredibly well with great information so you can research if you need to before you buy. Communication throughout my order was great – not too much and not too little. I was very comfortable and confident. The packaging was great. All the tarantulas arrived healthy and are active and doing great! I also ordered a nice enclosure and there were no problems with that. If my wife allows me to live after this most recent purchase, I will definitely be ordering from Fear Not Tarantulas again. 100 million percent thrilled.

Picked up a Caribena versicolor sling (ok, actually 2 of them however one was for my friend) as well as a vinegroon from them at the Tinley park expo. Both inverts have been very healthy in the month and a half I’ve had them (my versicolor just molted this morning! Also my friend’s versicolor molted this past week or so! Both very healthy). I’ve never ordered online from fearnot but they’ll be one of the first places I check when I’m ready to add to my collection again.
I had a question about my vinegaroon (I wanted to be sure I knew the exact species) so i contacted the info email provided on this facebook page. I received a reply within an hour that my vinegaroon was Mastigoproctus giganteus. Very quick to reply to emails, I’m confident they’d reply promptly regarding online orders as well.

My husband and I bought a G. pulchra sling from Fear Not Tarantulas at the Tinley Park NARBC a few days ago and we are in love!! We have two other tarantulas but both are adults, so we were a little apprehensive about getting a sling because they’re just so tiny and seem so delicate. All of our questions were answered and we left feeling confident about how to care for our new little one! He/she has eaten two meals with us already and is doing great! We’re so excited to be able to watch it grow! The next time we’re looking for a new tarantula, we’d buy/order from Fear Not in a heartbeat!

Their selection of tarantulas offered is always great, and their packing method for animals is superb. As their excellent rating would suggest, you couldn’t do better than using Fear Not Tarantulas. Will definitely use again in the future!

I placed my 1st order with Fear Not a little over a month ago… I placed my order just before they announced a black Friday sale, so Tanya was very kind in accrediting the points to my acct to compensate for that which I would have saved had I waited for the sale…thus allowing me to get more T’s than I had anticipated on getting! It was an awesome thing to do, and she certainly didn’t have to. Aside from that, the prices & selections are great, customer service and communication is superb, and all of my T’s are beautiful, healthy, and great eaters! I will definitely be doing business with them in the future, and would recommend them to anyone in the market for a tarantula, new & seasoned keepers alike!

We should have written this review long before, but it has the experience of a few orders to back it up. My wife Joanna and I have ordered a total of 8 slings from Fear Not Tarantulas, all wonderfully healthy slings I may add.
Our first order was in June, being our first transaction purchasing tarantulas online we were apprehensive, but Tanya was great about communication and the confirmation and detailed emails with delivery information all made us feel very reassured.
Our second order was in August, and actually the weather was a bit too hot to send them out when we originally planned. Tanya was kind enough to personally call us on the phone and make detailed plans with us so we were able to receive them at the next most convenient time. Valuing the lives of their tarantulas over making a sale, and we appreciate that they care so much about each tarantula they have.
Our most recent order we received October 24th, we were lucky enough to obtain the slings we wanted. Every order with Fear Not Tarantulas has been completely professional and the communication is perfect. We never had any issues with FedEx delivery estimations, or any communication errors with anyone. We will always be returning to Fear Not Tarantulas for every new addition to our growing family

My first experience with tanya has definitely been great. Amazing communication, packaging and selection (similar to a lot of other vendors) but she definitely went above and beyond to help me land some species ive been after forever.
Shes very patient and willing to help. I can tell she genuinely cares for her inverts and not just a profit…which is hard to come by these days.
We definitely need more sellers like her in the hobby, and for that id recommend her to anybody
I appreciate everything tanya and have a feeling you and i will be doing a lot more business in the future

I was lucky enough to get a G. Pulchra from Fear Not Tarantulas. Tanya was very helpful in getting my order just right. I also received a free H. colombia with my order! Both T’s arrived in excellent condition. They were packed with great care and both were healthy and exactly what I expected. I will most certainly recommend Fear Not Tarantulas and will be purchasing more T’s from them!

Received 4 new T’s today. Packing was perfect. Tarantulas are healthy and as advertised. I highly recommend Tonya at Fearnottarantuals.

Highly recommend, they know what they’re doing, they communicate with customers really well, and of course the safety of the Ts is their #1 priority, and it shows. Good people, great service.
Shout out to Tanya for helping me with a problem I had with my account due to ordering some Ts before and after creating an account. She was awesome and represents the business well.

Got a P. Metallica at Daytona and it’s doing great. Growing very fast and molting perfectly. Extremely happy with the little one.
