We all love baby pictures, right? Well, these babies anyways! Brachypelma albopilosum (“Nicaraguan” Curly Hair) We have curlies everywhere! These babies were bred right here at Fear Not, so we can offer special pricing. Holly, Rachael, and Tanya went a little crazy breeding them ... so take advantage of these very special prices that will expire May 26th! ... See MoreSee Less
We are happy to report that one of our own 10" female Theraphosa stirmi will be a permanent part of the exhibit! We are hoping to raise up a Poecilotheria communal for them also. Many times when people see the great variations of tarantulas they become interested and have a greater appreciation for these very cool creatures. 😎😎 ... See MoreSee Less
How long did it take for you guys to raise her to this size? I got a sling from you guys a few months ago and it hasn't really grown much. Would you say they have a similar growth to Homoeomma/Euathlus sp red?
"Mystery Spider" The Fear Not team have been trying to get me to offer “Mystery” species for months. Since we have had several requests for this, here it is! 🧐🧐🧐🧐
Each team member has made a choice completely on their own and written a description. From this I have learned they can write and rhyme pretty darn well! I think they need to write a Fear Not rap song …. Hmmmmm ….. 🎵🎵🎵🎶🎤
We will offer the “Mystery” species for four weeks starting today, April 24th.
To make this more fun, I have agreed to give the team member whose species gets the most orders after the 4 weeks $200.00! So you may see them lobbying for you to purchase their tarantula. 🕷️🕸️🕷️🕸️
What a fun idea! The personable peach sounds the most intriguing 🙂
I have to add them to my cart to see the descriptions. Is this correct or is my browser just being difficult?
I want them all!
Is there a chance I could order one and pick it up at Pet Paradise?
For sure getting in on this!!! Super cool idea 🙂
Andrew Lanier 😭
This sounds pretty fun
Awe I hate having to choose. Might have to get more then one.
Shoot. If I had any money at all I'd be tempted to get every single one. I love surprises.
Vikki Marie I guess I’m getting more spoods🤷🏻♀️
I love this!
Yay this is awesome !
Jennifer Dixon you like surprises?
Greg Egendoerfer II
This is so great. My friend and I both placed orders yesterday and then...at 2am...I ordered two more! 😭 Your site is awesome and I hope you do this as an annual thing because it’s seriously the coolest!
I got Brandon’s Brown, Rachel’s Righteous, and Myle’s MVP.
(I also got Avic Purpurea and P Sazimai...my husband will kill me! 🤣)
Ok, how did 1 T turn into 4?? I was just going to get 1 mystery T.
Im gonna try this in a week or so! This will be my second T....Whatever it is, its goinf to be gnarly, I know it!
That was a very exciting experience! Combined my two favorite hobbies into one. Just make sure you have your bitcoin in a wallet compatible with bitpay and it is quick, easy and painless. I used the BRD (bread) wallet with no issues.
That feel when you have no cryptocurrency but have this empty coin sitting in your hands.
Its still nice to look at. On these physical coins, how does one put the currency into it.
Im unsure what your asking. Are you saying you have one of the novelty bitcoin coins?
I had asked you a few weeks ago via email if you'd accept Litecoin!! Think you'd be up to it now?
We have had many requests for packages other than just for "Beginners", so we have been adding some. We have many "Complete Arboreal Packages" listed and are working on getting some terrestrials on there as well. 🕷️🕸️🕷️🕸️🕷️🕸️ www.fearnottarantulas.com... See MoreSee Less

Do you offer small groups of sac mates for pokie slings? Im sure people would buy package deals on sac mates for communal if you don't already, me included haha
When I saw you guys at Tinley you had some keychains and pins. Different varieties of those would be super cool. And just any kind of promotional merchandise in general. I'd definitely rock a shirt or bag. Lots of people have asked about my keychain in fact. Stickers or magnets would be cool too. Other than that carrying bada** things like huntsman spiders is really awesome too. Super excited for those. Always wanted one ever since I was little.
If you started selling some tarantula related merchandise, i think you'd get a huge crowd. Im constantly looking for tarantula jewelry, purses, etc. The focus group would cater to people who not only have tarantulas, but also those who dont..just an idea. Ill continue to be a faithful customer not matter what;) Look forward to seeing you in August in Daytona:)
Trap doors please
I'd love to possibly see mystery boxes from you guys 🙂 not sure if that's something you'd like to do or not.
Perhaps add more search categories such as dwarf, new world, and old world. It would help narrow down what people are looking for a little faster.
I'd like to see them with grafted mini guns, or possibly flamethrowers. Also, if we could look into nuclear radiation that'd be pretty sweet.... like "8 legged freaks" style scenarios. Personally I think it's a relatively untapped market with a ton of earning potential. Get back with me on that, I'd be happy to invest in the venture.
Will you guy ever sell sand spiders? I would love to purchase one!!!
Will you be getting any Sicarius sp?
I also like the idea of some Fear Not Tarantulas shirts and tarantula shirts in general. I also think some cool posters or high def framed pictures would be awesome. I also think you should start accepting crypto currency. Its on the verge of mass adoption, especially with the recent changes to paypals terms and conditions. Not to mention there are many sites that list buisnesses that accept crypto...so thatd be some free advertising to an unreached demographic. Not to be crass, but pornhub (23rd largest website on the internet) just launched a campaign announcing they accept cryptocurrency...and that industry seems to lead the way in innovation...it standardized super 8 film, adopted vhs which killed betamax, and adopted blu-ray which killed HD DVD. Please let me buy tarantulas with bitcoin...lol.
I also think it would be cool if you could team up with Toms Big Spiders and have care videos on YouTube linked to the species you havr for sale. So when i see a new species i may want to buy and click to see how much it is and photos, theres a youtube video on that page that goes over husbandry, care, and general info.
Hit up some tarantula youtubers and do more colabs like you did with Tom. That guy in Croatia, Dark Den...has a lot of subscribers in the US...a plug from him will help spread the word.
Would love a mystery box!
I'm an artist and own a tarantula, by far the coolest of my pets... my tarantula artwork always draws interest, but it takes a specific type of client to buy. You have the Tarantula client base already 🙂
I'm about to try encasing the last molt in 2 part epoxy and making something from that for myself... I'm betting that things of that nature would be something folks would purchase from you. |
I would sport a T-shirt.
MYSTERY BOXES... so I will have each of the Fear Not team come up with their own mystery species each month. The only thing we will say about it is if it's terrestrial or arboreal.
Love it as is
Maybe start selling jumping spiders and more species of tailess whip scorpions:)
Pics of really cool tank setups and how to would be nice, videos on spider handling- especially for kids or beginners, maybe some more infographic clips on exotic or unusual species, add some humor perhaps?
Jenny Roberts any ideas?
With edited hats on them or maybe some comic strips saying what they could be thinking about 😂
UPDATE! We have been working on many of the fantastic suggestions. Richard Stewart, Bitpay is now enabled! 😉To all those who suggested a MYSTERY spider ... they will be posted today! 👀👀🔍🔎 We have added several packages that include everything - habitat, feeders, and a 30 day live guarantee. AND we are working on the rest! Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!! 😍😍
It does not happen often, but every few months someone will order and expect delivery the next day no matter what. We have a customer who is very unhappy with us because he ordered at 10:00 PM last night and we did not ship to him today. He said that since he paid for overnight shipping, we should have shipped his order the next day. 🛫🛬🛬🛫🛬🛫🛬🛫🛬🛫🛬🛫🛬🛫
We want to avoid unpleasant situations as much as possible and have posted on our "Shop" page that "overnight" does not mean we will ship the very next day. It simply means when we do ship, it will be overnight. 🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛🌛
We can only ship a certain number of orders out each day. Orders that are placed by Thursday or Friday are guaranteed to go out Monday or Tuesday as long as the spider ordered is healthy and the weather is good. If an order comes in late on a Tuesday, it may not go out until the following Monday. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
We take great pride in our customer service and believe that as long as there is good communication and expectations are clear, our customers will see that we are dedicated to ensuring orders are received safely.
We never ship an order out until we receive confirmation from our customer that the date of delivery works with their schedule.
If you took the time to read this, we appreciate it. Use the code "overnight" and receive 10% off your purchase! expires 4/22. ... See MoreSee Less
You guys are awesome, people need to learn to read the fine print. Keep up the good work you guys! ❤️
If one orders at 10 PM, it's pretty unreasonable to think that anyone is working 24-hours to oack and ship live orders
When I visited your website it was very easy to navigate and I saw your shipping policy. This person obviously wasn’t paying attention. Lol
Other people’s kids 🤦🏻♀️
Can't please everyone, some people don't use common sense. I myself and happy with you guys with the little ones my wife ordered from you .
What a noob
I have ordered slings from you before with no issues. I love your website and your inventory, I cannot say I've ever had a bad experience with my orders. They came when expected alive and healthy. People just need to pay attention to the fine print because your shop is amazing
I've worked enough in customer service long enough to know that the mantra "The customer is always right!" is oftentimes very, very wrong.
You and your website are very transparent about how shipping works - you just can't fix stupid, dear. : )
As a business owner myself, I can say we all have to deal with the occasional pain in the butt customer who just doesn't get it and don't bother to read or understand the policy on how things work. I thing y'all rock and had a great experience with my ordering process and my new Ts! 🙂
I've had several people make purchases Sunday evening and get pissed the animals didn't show up on their doorstep Monday morning
omg, I couldn't be more pleased with the customer service I received- that was one of my happiest days when my baby arrived
You are probably the absolute best I've ever had the pleasure to deal with.
100% Trust worthy, great with giving answers to questions, even if the particular T wasn't purchased from you.
I know your an awesome hobbiest that heartly loves what you guys do.
Keep up the good work guys.
Your customers love you.
So if I place an overnight order at 10pm on Saturday night, I won’t get it Monday morning!?!?!? Ah, the joys of customer service...BTW love your site and the critters I’ve gotten from you 🙂
You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all the people all of the time.
What you have posted on your site is excellent. Some people just don't use common sense and don't read.
Thank you all for your support. The encouraging words are appreciated. We always are up for suggestions as well. 😊😊

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

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 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

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 😂😂😂
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.

Ordered mine yesterday as soon as I got the email! Can not wait!!
