We had a great time meeting many of the customers we normally ship to today! Great to put a face to the name. It isn't over yet! We still have many species of awesome tarantulas - come see us tomorrow at Tinley Park in Chicgo! ... See MoreSee Less
Well, Isaac and I are almost there after a long drive! We have a vehicle FULL of tarantulas and we do not want to pack them back up, so come see us and many of the other Fear Not team (some flying and some driving) at Tinley in Chicago this weekend! Great deals on over a hundred species is promised!🕷🕷🕸🕸🐍 ... See MoreSee Less
Come to Texas! Chicago is to far for some of us! Lol
Got my T from you guys yesterday in the mail. Thanks!
Many people know, but for those who don't, Isaac is my son. He is autistic and has s movement problem so he moves slower. Isaac enjoys traveling to expos with us and actually looks forward to long car rides! He doesn't say much, but he understands, reads and writes. When someone has a disability it is easy to not realize what they CAN do. He responds slow though so if you say hi to him there is an awkward 10 to 15 seconds before he responds. He is truly a joy. 💚❤💖
Can't wait to stop and see what you have!
Did you bring any P. Platyomma
Any Brazilian pinkbloom
Going to miss you guys at the Richmond show this weekend.
Glad i grabbed my Platyomma last year before everyone jumped on the band wagon lol, Are u guys bringning any pokie slings? I live like 4 hours away but this might be a roadtrip that's worth my while lol
Your car has an awesome collection!
I need one! Got any blue cobalts on deck?
I'll see you there for sure.
Our son, Alex, has high functioning autism and loves critters, but especially the red-knee tarantula. He watches your page and is a huge fan!
I have always wanted to go to this reptile show, but I just can't afford it
I'm jealous we don't have any reptile conventions in Arkansas 😞
Have fun enjoy will be there in october
Keep on truckin guys no need to come this way!!
ayyy I want my spidee again
Do y’all ever come to NC?!
Got us any T. Stirma?
WTF! Lemme know you hit anywhere near Philly. You're online has me drooling to add to my companions. Cost of petrol vs decent show is way negotiable. I'm particular in my selection though.
Ptsd and veteran. My companions are lost squad members. Love them all. As far as naming.
I used to use him as my main source of information about tarantula keeping maybe 10 or maybe even 15 years ago when I got a Rose Hair from a friend, I can't remember... time starts to blur now that I'm 30!! A few weeks ago I started getting the itch to get back into arachnid keeping and I was just THRILLED to see that Tom has kept at it and grown while over the past few years. And if he recommends you and your team, well I know where I'm going to be purchasing all of my tarantulas online in the future!
Join us at the North American Reptile Breeders Conference at Tinley Park, Chicago for some spectacular deals on tarantulas. We will have sexed pairs, juveniles and over 100 species available! Tell Brandon how cool he is and get something extra! 😎😎 ... See MoreSee Less
Kochiana brunnipes Tarantula (Dwarf Pink Leg) spiderlings. The smallest spiderlings we have ever worked with!

We have the import in hand! There was a flight delay and Fish & Wildlife inspected it, but all that is over and now to start housing! The Grammostola Pulchras (Brazilian Black) are amazing!

We love when our nursery starts filling up! We have our first Kochiana brunnipes sac pulled and it is full of lots of tiny spiderlings. We also pulled a Psalmopoeus cambridgei (Trinidad chevron) sac, and our Neoholothele incei Gold spiderlings were all out ready for a photo shoot! Caribena versicolor (Martinique pinktoe) and Monocentropus balfouri (Socotra Island Blue Baboon) sacs are also soon to be pulled. ... See MoreSee Less
We just received this email from a customer who ordered last night and thought we would take this opportunity to go over our shipping policies. ✈️✈️🛩️✈️✈️✈️🛫🛬
Orders ship Monday through Wednesday. There are many reasons for this and one of them is the safety of the animals. Any delays on shipments after that could cause them to be held up through the entire weekend, which would cause unneeded stress to the spiderlings and possible deaths. 😖😖😖
We do not ship for delivery on the weekends. When we attempted this on two occasions, it did not go well and we will not take that chance again. Delays for overnight shipments seem to be an issue and it is not worth the risk. This is something we have heard many times from other dealers as well. ⏳⏳⏳⏳⏳⏳⏳
Fear Not covers your purchase in cases of carrier delays. Most others do not, so if they ship at times when the risk for delays is higher, it is the customer and the animal that looses out.
Threatening a "harsh" review will certainly not motivate us to go against the shipping policies we have in place that is for the safety of these creatures.🕷️🕷️🕷️🕷️🕷️
Please ensure that you understand the shipping policies before ordering. We always do our best to accommodate schedules and circumstances without risking the health of the spiderlings.💙💚💛🖤💜
I'll wait 2 more days for healthy, stress-free spiders and sales folks 👍
I don’t find these policies odd at all. This tells me that you truly care about your tarantulas. I had to wait a couple of weeks for mine to ship because of delays in TN and I didn’t mind one bit because my tarantula arrived healthy and safe.
Your tarantulas are of high quality and this is exactly what I would expect from a reputable business. 🤓👍🏼🕷
I mean, they are more than welcome to drive/fly to VB and pick up, right?
I’m pretty sure that policy is clearly stated right at the very top of the shop page. They might need to work on their reading skills instead of their reviewing skills. 🙄 Kudos to you guys for caring about the safety and health of your tarantulas than the almighty dollar!
Well said guys. I have to add that them stating that every other site ships on weekends is a blatant lie, as I’ve ordered from two other reputable dealers and they have the exact same shipping policy as you. And I do hope that they took more care in learning about the T’s they purchased than they did in reading your shipping policy which is clearly stated on your website.
If someone would really prioritize their convenience over the well-being of the animals, probably just as well they don't get them.
If anything there is cause for an excellent review due to the care and compassion for the animals!
What???? I LOVE that you all are responsible and don't ship in weekends. I don't buy from anyone that ships then!
Given the self important tone of the email and the passive aggressive threat of a "harsh" review, if it were my shop I'd refund their money and tell them I didn't need their business. But I suspect you guys are much nicer than I am. 😈😄
The message above came After we refunded her. She was likely trying to use the 'I'll cancel through my bank" thing to get me to ship for a weekend delivery.
Sorry to disappoint you Rebecca Buckley! 😂 My emailed response to her is below. Thank you all for chiming in!
This "odd practice" is pretty much standard for shipping live animals. Nothing odd about it. It's not some piece of clothing or a toy that's fine when it sits over the weekend in the depot because of a delay. This must be their first time ordering a critter. 🤔
she is wrong MOST reputable breeders will not ship on the weekend
We are taking orders at for Grammostola pulchra at fearnottarantulas.com for shipping starting Feb. 19th.

When you say habitat do you mean the container and substrate etc or just container? Just curious either way it’s an awesome deal!
Does this deal only last for today @fearnottarantula?
Kyng Blazian want me to get you one 😂😂😂
Yay!!! Just placed my order 👍😝
Any pics of the included set up?
I would like to see the setup as well.
You will have your choice of either the round or square one. The round one is nearly 4" tall and the square is a little over 3". Leaves may vary. 😊 Thes spiderlings are not very fast growers, so this habitat will do nicely for them for at least three months.
Jenasi J Turk
I just got mine! Yay!
Ordered mine yesterday as soon as I got the email! Can not wait!!
Ok, well.... I saw this post my friend shared and just ordered 3 tarantulas from you. 😂😂😂 I am so excited to get them. <3
My wife and I just bought our first spider, little white knee sling we named Maya. It's strange but we're realizing that she has little quirks I never expected from an insect. She has foods she like and food's she dislikes. I never really expected that an insect could have a taste preference. This little eight legged furball has developed some very endearing qualities.
Dootin Branch another communal option
i had no idea this species was communal!
Communal set ups are so cool! I’ve got a successful o.b.t communal with 5 subadults, it’s so fun to watch them share burrows 🙂
Does this include an enclosure for them as well or just the group of 5 spiderlings?
How big of set up would I need? I’ve been wanting a communal babies!
We appreciate the unboxing video from Norvis Eight legged Critters! It reminded me to let everyone know they can remove our labels easily to use for themselves. We use removable labels for that purpose. This also shows how we use insulation to block heat packs. This is done very individually based on many factors including the species in the box, temperatures in Memphis, TN (our hub), the temperature at the destination, and the time of delivery, Thanks again for the video! 👍👍Hope you guys enjoy and a big thanks to Tanya and the Fear Not Tarantulas crew!! ...

SHIPPING ALERT: We just received an email from FedEx alerting us to service delays at our hub in Memphis, TN. Most all of our packages go through Memphis, so we watch their weather closely. Overnight temperatures in the teens and single digits coupled with flight delays makes shipping live creatures too risky. 🌬️🌬️We will be shipping a very limited number of orders out next week. All orders placed this week will not be shipped until the week of the 22nd. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we know you want us to take good care of your spiderlings and make sure they arrive alive and healthy! If you have any questions at all about this, please email us at [email protected]... See MoreSee Less
You may have heard that the East Coast has experienced an unusual winter event over the last couple of days. Our area is not accustomed to having the amount of snow and ice that came our way and all roads other than interstates are still quite icy. 🌬️🌀🌬️🌀 This has caused FedEx service alerts in 11 states along the east coast. For that reason we will not be shipping Monday the 8th or Tuesday the 9th. We are already pretty backed up on orders going out due to the holidays, but we know from experience that shipping at this time would just be too risky. We appreciate your patience and understanding. 😊
On another note, we woke up to a house with no power Friday. Ice and snow had taken it's toll on power lines. We have a generator but it would not start for us, and as it got later and the power had still not been restored, we started to get concerned for the many tarantulas in the spider room upstairs as the temperature was going down in the house. I want to publicly thank Rachael Pan and her husband for driving a distance with their very cool 4 wheel drive truck to help us get to Home Depot. It is wonderful to have a team that is willing to go the 'extra mile' to ensure the safety of these creatures! 💖💖💖 ... See MoreSee Less
I’m so glad the power is back, and all the spiders are safe!
You can do it!
Btw 7 m.balfori for 300 let's do it! In 3-7months!!!!
Glad to hear you got the power back on! This winter is brutal for so many areas! We are -22 this morning here in southern New Hampshire! Thankfully our power is on (perks of living right near the power station), but we are still running the wood stove and a couple electric heaters in addition to our regular heat just to keep things warm enough for us and the critters today.
Glad you are all okay. This has been a crazy weather week.

Greetings Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc... I'm in the market for a sexed female Singapore blue...can y'all help....and it would be amazing if y'all set up a vendors table at the herps Exotics expo in New Orleans
Just a question with regard to breeding - since the newly hatched slings are so tiny - do you ever have any that escape? And if so - are you always able to know what kind they are?
You should have a beginner package that includes an Eupalastrus campestratus since they’re the calmest, slow growing T. 😊 They’re great!
Can I havea P. Mettallica
Do you guys carry chaco gold knees?
Mine escaped and I was so sad because I had it for 6 months
We are now including feeders with our beginner packages. You will receive enough feeders for at least two weeks. This makes our packages the most complete available and will eliminate any concerns about not having the correct food size available.😊
Monocentropus balfouri (Socotra Island Blue Baboon) communal groups are back in stock! We have very well started spiderlings that are 1" + in groups of 5 (4 plus 1 free) for $250. M. balfouri are certainly one of the most communal species and it is such a treat to watch them interact as they grow together. A communal setup takes spidering to a whole new level!

My husband just bought me a gift certificate for my birthday today so this perfect timing!! ❤️
OmG. Love overload. I’ll be placing my order in the morning. Oh, how wish I had the funds for that T. blondi!!! I need to make a payment plan for myself so the next time I find them, I can shell it out. Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc, please excuse me for not digging into this further prior to asking but is there a husbandry benefit to keeping M. balfouri in a communal group rather than solitary? I was planning on getting just one, but if that’s not recommended I’d rather wait than try to introduce new spiders at a later time. Thank you!
Love Love 💘!
Update the site....lol.

Hi I want one

We put the purpurea out of stock for the moment because they are selling quite quickly. When we know the exact numbers coming in on Monday we will put them back in stock. We hope to know by tomorrow so ... Fear Not! 👌👌
Will they be available at your store in VA Beach?
Malorie Martinez look how beautiful they aree
Bradlee Raven Hines
We just put the purpurea back in stock. Our exporter let us know that we will be getting less than half the number we thought, so quantities are very limited. 💜💜💜
The gbb sling you sold me in Daytona Beach is doing great couldn't ask for a better first tarantula
I need help identifying the tarantula we have, but I have no way to upload a picture to your sight! It was caught here in north east Texas. When it molts, it's pure black, but as its exo hardens, it's apodeme turns brown and legs remain black. Any idea what kind it is?
Any idea when your A. purpurea will be back in stock? Thank you
Tanya, is there any way to pay for one of these but hold off on shipping until the purpurea come in?
Is there somewhere I can find a list of the different species u carry?

We have been getting a lot of breeding done here at Fear Not - including a few Theraphosa stirmi (Burgundy Goliath Birdeater). If the female appears small, she isn't. That is our giant male. He is about 1/3 larger than our other two mature males. Thanks to Rachael Pan, we had three or four pairs at a time on the breeding table. The male was offered to us by Charles Dworchak ...

But they can put fights, and all kinds of other stupid crap on and it's ok.
Facebook is starting to suck.
My buddy put a video of his daughter dancing to a song up and they removed it because of the song playing.
Which was nothing inappropriate at all.
It was certainly inaccurately reported, but the appealing process for Youtube is not customer friendly and there is no way to reach the decision makers to find out if the appeal has been decided on. It could have even been someone who just doesn't like tarantulas.
But a guy can livestream himself running from the cops, people being shot and killed, beaten, child abuse? Facebook is fucking stupid thats why I hardly get on anymore
This is YouTube who has restricted our channel. We will be using Facebook to livestream🤗🤗 when we get it configured this weekend.
Well that is infuriating. I'm seeing censorship (disguised as "you've violated our terms of service") happen more and more even with completely harmless and inoffensive content like this. Some busybody complains and they take it down without investigation. Or an algorithm flags it for some nonsensical reason and suddenly you're shut down. Too many people have come to rely on platforms like Facebook and YouTube, and now those corporations get to filter and/or monetize your content however they please.
YouTube in undergoing lots of changes. Not all for the better.
Was Myles in the shot ? Cause streaming anything with Myles is inappropriate 🤣
We actually have gotten this on our unboxing videos of tarantulas 😮 Usually YouTube will fix the issue within a few days to a week without us needing to do anything.
