Did you know that we offer many complete packages? They include the spiderling, habitat (no re-housing for at least 2-3 months), substrate, foliage, a spiderling care guide, feeders for 2 weeks, and a 30 day live guarantee. Our packages take all the stress out of purchasing a new spiderling! fearnottarantulas.com/product-category/complete-packages/ 🕷️🕷️🕷️🕷️🕷️ Here is to stress-free spidering! 🥂🥂🥂 ... See MoreSee Less
Hi there!I've got a quick question about some orders. I wanted to order two of these beginner packages and that'd put two habitats in my order. And so I would qualify for a freebie spider and I wanted to get that there pumpkin patch fella, but I'd have to order another habitat. How's this gonna work, I thought I saw something about a limit on shipping habitats...
These are cute but i dont think i ca. Ever get slings again... theyre so small and my Pumpkin Patch just died cause he was so little and wouldnt eat even flightless fruit flies </3 no fault to Fear Not BTW. He was completely fine when he came here. No way to know... 🙁
I so wanted to do the last bunch- was it ever revealed what they were?
Ok... I know I have 2 of 4, one is OW and right out... so... looks like I'm going with the true mystery!
OW terrestrial...very tempted. 😊
What’s the shipping period? It’s 111° here so I might have to wait until late fall to order a mystery.
Is any the mystery T species docile and not defensive
My temps here in TX are too high or I would order! Hope you will do again in the Fall! Looks like so much fun ♡
Where are the descriptions?
I didnt get one last time and Damian's turned out to be a pulchra 🤦♂️ I'm gonna have to participate this time...Myles, is your royal arboreal a T. seladonia? 'Cause that arboreal is royal alright - it's a crown jewel 😂 but in all seriousness, will these guys be $50 again?
Got Holly's pick and it is ADORABLE! I can't wait for the reveal 🙂
I got Rachel's splendid spider and I like it I think I know what it is and if I'm right. I would have never been able to afford this species
Question about the price. Is it $50 flat or $50+shipping??
"Holly's Oh So Shiny" seems tempting for some odd reason. 🤣
The disadvantage to living in the middle of nowhere - too hot to ship to my home and the nearest shipping center is over an hour away 🙁
Y’all are going to do a heavy face palm once Shalissa Rae is revealed! Only two more days to order her!
What day are you going to reveal the mystery t’s ?
We ordered Rachel's splendid spider! Super excited!!
I highly recommend the Rachael’s Seriously Splendid Spider! You can’t go wrong with this incredibly beautiful old world!!
Just received Holly's Oh so Shiny today! So excited for the reveal!
I wish I’d been ready for old worlds in time! Looking forward to the reveal!
Wellllll now.... I know that many of you have this challenge! You know who you are.... the ones using other peoples PayPal accounts to pay, the ones who ask me to ship to a friends house.... amongst other little tricks.🤣🤣 ... See MoreSee Less
Whoops! I never posted this on FB! Here is the latest episode in which I talk about how to convince a mate to let you have a tarantula. I have to admit, I don't have a lot of personal experience with ...
I made my husband love tarantulas by giving them names, talking about them and “humanizing” them. It also helps he doesn’t have a fear of spiders. Plus, he collects baseball cards (and all things baseball) so he can’t really complain. 😉
Oh god, they all look the same.
1. Pamphobeteus ecuador ii
2. Pamphobeteus platyomma
3. Pamphobeteus machala
Commented on picture.
1. sp. Ecuador II 2. Platyomma. 3. machala
1 - Sp. Ecuador II. 2 - ultramarinus. 3 - machala
Also commented on picture.
Tigris, platyomma, machala
Geez. Pamphos are hard to tell
Tigris, cascada, and mascara
1 machala 2 ecuador 3 platyomma
I commented on the picture also.
Ok, the answers are: 1. Machala (they are bluer and a bit fuzzier spiderlings) 2. Platyomma (usually the chunkiest), and 3. Tigris. Take a look at the Fear Not website and you will see that those are the only 3 Pamphobeteus we have in stock. 🕷️🕷️ If you got them correct in that order, please email me at [email protected] . The answers can be confirmed by any of the 6 Fear Not staff. We separated these spiderlings last week. 😎😎
Darn it. Mixed up 2 and 3. So close 😖
Dang it! I missed #3
We really appreciate the participation and want to give everyone who made a guess something. Just use coupon code "pampho" at checkout to receive 25% off your entire purchase of $150 and above (excluding shipping). The last day to use the code is 1 July. Only those who guessed please. 😎😎😎
I'm still hecka starstruck seeing y'alls pics and videos. Lol...I know its probably silly...but its so great to see how my babies got to me. My first four (2 B. albo, a G. pulcripes and an A. genic) and my 2 versicolors all came from y'all. Thanks for sharing 😄😁💙 And for caring.
Sweet! Can’t wait to see my new G. Pulchra on Wednesday!
My first time buying from you guys 🙂
One of those are probably mine too. So excited
Get my new babies next week, so excited!!
The dream team!!!!!
Thank you very much! ☺
My babies came today and everyone looks SO fabulous. Thank you so much!
I miss u and Isaac. Tell him I said hi.
With all due respect, I'd love to be a customer of yours but why are your shipping prices $30-$40 higher than other reputable dealers? Prices for the Ts themselves is very fair and comparable but I sadly get stopped at paying $55 to ship to my door when I could pay $15 elsewhere and the T comes just as protected. Maybe I am misunderstanding something.
LOVED THIS IDEA AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT TIME!!!!!!! 🕷🖤
Awesome guys 🖤
I’m in love!!!!
Really cool 🙂
I just placed my first order with you guys, very excited!
Keep up the cool stuff you do.
OMG I am so excited that Rachel's & Brandon's were two on my wish list!!!
And I had Damien's guessed!
I guessed right with Myles! Is it lowland or highland though?
Welp, I have 2 Nhandu Chromatus slings now 🤣 I ordered them at the same time but Im not disappointed because they appear to be completely different personalities already so far! Maybe I'll have a male and a female 🤗 this was TONS of fun tho!
Oh I guessed right on Myles’ and Damien’s! Please do another next month, my school loans will have come in so I can order!😂😍
I was completely wrong. 👀 I look forward to the next one.
Was it possible to get a mystery spider in-store as well? Please do it again! I missed it this time 😓
Christine Torres !!!
Please do another one!!!!! I love my P. Sub! Its a fun surprise to find out whet these beautiful mysteries are!!! Do it!!!!! 😀
I got 2 right 😀 go me the mysterious brown I had NO idea but I'm so happy with my decisions!
I can't wait for the next round!
Also, can you do an archive of mystery T descriptions on the website? I'd love to be able to go back and read them.
Think I just spoiled my mystery spider’ by watching
Scolopendra dehaani - Vietnam Giant Centipede **captive bred! These are such cute babies! We only have a few left! 👈👈https://fearnottarantulas.com/product/scolopendra-dehaani-vietnam-giant-centipede-captive-bred/ ... See MoreSee Less
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!! 😍😍
Get and breed some Heteropoda lunula!
I'm really looking for an Euathalus sp Red. Such a cute dwarf species. Darn Chile for closing your borders to exporting tarantulas! 🙁 Do you have any of those or know someone that does?
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.

You guys are awesome, people need to learn to read the fine print. Keep up the good work you guys! ❤️
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. 😊😊
But but but i thought you were magical like that
That customer apparently does not take into account the safety for the T either. I understand why it wouldn't ship until a certain day and respect that. Number one priority is safety.
