    Hello!
    I want to ask for European dealers who can ship Ts to other countries. I know some, but not a lot. So, I would like to ask anyone who sees this tread to list the dealers that they know. I think this could turn out quite helpful for a lot of people. I'm starting with these tree:

    Thanks! Are you satisfied? Have you had any dead arrivals? Have you ordered small slings? In what parts of the year have you bought from them? I'm from Bulgaria and I know of people who have bought tarantulas from other countries but some weren't so lucky. For example, I know a person who bought a Theraphosa female which died several weeks after that. Have you had Ts dying like that?

    @pokie99 I bought 3 in one shipment from Spiders World (2 x 1st instar and 1x 6th instar) all arrived fit and healthy and are still doing well 3 months on. From Spiders Online I've had 2 shipments (all 1st - 3rd instar) and again all arrived fit and healthy.

    I've not had a dead on arrival yet, thank goodness, although I had one from a UK supplier died within a few hours through no fault of the seller and it was replaced very quickly.

    Some will but US customs are very strict so it would be your risk if they were stopped..
