    Gorgeous little peacock spider!
    Everything was packed perfectly, and even a gel pack was included in the packaging to make sure he arrived safely.
    He is quick, but also very tame, and is not afraid to jump on and spend some time with you.

    Nothing is better than watching him wave his little legs around while exploring!
    Thank you so much again bug frenzy, definitely my favourite seller, and highly recommend!
