About Us


Buddha Bugs is a family-owned business based in Texas. It was founded in 2020 by Nick and Ziqian to provide high-quality captive-bred tarantulas and isopods to the local community. Although we are relatively new to the commercial market, we have 27 years of combined knowledge and experience working with various reptiles and invertebrates.

We only sell captive-bred animals, some of which we produce at Buddha Bugs. The rest of our animals come from reputable breeders in the US or are legally and safely imported from Europe. By caring for them every week, we ensure that our spiders and isopods receive the proper care they need. This includes misting, feeding, cleaning, and rehousing if necessary. All our spiders are well-fed and live in properly sized enclosures with correct husbandry.

At Buddha Bugs, we prioritize the health of our animals and customer satisfaction above everything else. To ensure the animals' safe arrival, we put in extra work preparing them for shipping. Every order is shipped in an insulated box with a heat pack/cold pack and/or cryopaks to maintain safe temperatures inside the box. We also pack the box carefully to prevent the animals from shifting during transit and injuring themselves.

If you have any questions or concerns about your new animals before placing an order, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can click the "Chat with us" button or message us on our social media, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
