Mike's Basic Tarantula
A Basic Site for the Tarantula enthusiast
First, I am not a dealer. The following tarantula species for sale are from my personal collection. Seven I bought wild caught as juveniles; they are marked with a red asterisk (*). All the others were captive born and was raised by me from spiderlings. Second, all my spiders were raised with tender loving care.  They all have a personal name. Thirdly, the reason I am thinning out my collection is, I am interested more in the African species. Purchasing several or bulk is negotiable. E-mail me for questions and offers.

Thanks you for visiting my website.
