Jessica is the sweetest person ever and is always extremely helpful. She’s knowledgeable and has very good taste in spiders and products
She arrived fat and healthy!
I hope one is a female lol
I just got my two babies in and I couldn’t be happier. Very fast shipment. They came wonderfully packaged. The one was already molted and was very eager to eat it’s fruit flys. The other one is a little shy and cautious, but also very entertaining watching he/she explore. Would highly recommend buy from Marshall arachnids.
They arrived very quickly, smooth transaction. Well packaged she arrived ready to interact
I bought my orchid mantis at the show in Taylor MI on 6/11. The enclosure she was in was included and had moss ribbon that she loved to hang from. Ophelia molted about 2 weeks after I brought her home, ate & drank well, and was always bright, alert, and healthy.
Sadly, 3 days ago she started acting abnormally. I reached out to Marshall Arachnids and they responded in less than 12 hours. The owner spent a lot of time on the phone with me, trying to figure out what was happening. He took his time, was very thorough, I never felt rushed, and he made sure I didn't have any additional questions before we hung up. He also welcomed me to reach out again if I needed to.
Unfortunately, Ophelia didn't make it (which was because of something I did, NOT Marshall). They really went above and beyond trying to help me.
They are an amazing shop and really care about their insects/arachnids.
I also bought a Regal Jumping Spider from them and he/she is doing very well.
I'll be getting a new Orchid Mantis from them soon.
They arrived alive, which in itself is an accomplishment with the temperatures we were having where I live. They are showing already very distinctive and different personalities and getting more comfortable exploring. Will definitely get more in the future.
We ordered ours from Marshall’s arachnids, their customer service was top notch. The P Metallica’s are not easy to find. We ordered 2 and they are little characters and fun to take care of. Definitely healthy and vigorous eaters with a bit of a feisty side as spiderlings. We will enjoy watching them grow.
My C. versicolor slings came active and perfect! They were packed in an awesome insulated box with a cool pack. They stuck to their policy of not shipping direct when the temperature was too hot, but to a FedEx facility for safe keeping. The communication was just about real time, so nothing could or would go wrong. My new favorite on-line arachnid store!!!
After choosing a arrival date they shiped it out the day before, arrived as a L4 female . They also included a realy nice enclosure for her. I named her tofu and I’ve had her for 10 days, she hasent had her first molt yet but I still put her into her bigger enclosure. I always have to take her out of her enclosure and but her on to my bed, then I release a fruit flie onto my bed and let her hunt it down. I do this twise every other day and it works fine. It loves fruit flies but can even eat 1/2 inch crickets. I was very carefull when feding her crickets tho as they could of hurt her. Anyways I recommend this 10/10
I got it today and it was sooooooo energetic i fed it a few fruit flys bc i thought it might be a little hungry. I love it so much there name is dracula im not sure if its M/F yet. I love my new praying mantis i recomend 10/10 to get a mantis from here it was well packaged and no damages on the box. It arived around 12pm which is earlyyy for mail for me. I will def buy a mantis here again!
the order was packaged really good and was made safe for the spiderlings. I really like this shop and definitely will order again from them. Both babies have also recently molted:)

I named my d. diamantinensis “Tiny Mouth.” This beautiful, will web you a blanket faster than grandma, dwarf species has be known to be referred to a “mini” GBB. My own GBB is named Ripley and has an Alien theme in her enclosure, so naturally I couldn’t resist calling this gem “Tiny Mouth!” The T showed up healthy and packed extremely well with care. This shop always has a great variety of products, Ts and enclosures on Etsy! Thanks again!!!
