    Pros - Excellent and varied list of species for sale
    Top-notch communication
    Great prices
    Good shipping and packing
    Cons - None
    I responded to one of the ads Rowdy posted offering several species of scorpions. He was super responsive, answering me back within an hour. As I ordered late in the week, he was clear in explaining that my animals wouldn't ship until Monday or Tuesday, which I completely anticipated and understood. They were shipped out Monday morning and arrived safe and sound on Wednesday. In the interim, he answered a couple questions I had about one of the more obscure species I was ordering. All of the scorpions were lively and obviously well fed and cared for. Just an excellent experience all around. I've gone ahead and preordered some other animals from him, so I'm already ordering again. Great dealer!

    Pros - Extremely patient, I had to hold shipping for a week and everything still went smoothly. Great selection of scorpions. I can't even call the outage on 2 species a con because they were replaced with exceptional species and communication was ALWAYS a pleasure. Looking forward to these growing up and our next transaction.
    Cons - None whatsoever.
    Original plan was to just buy a few H. jayakari and because of this selection I ended up choosing 4 more (2 species) Because I had to hold shipping for a week I wasn't able to get the jayakari yet. Seller and I agreed the risk of molting during shipping wasn't worth it. He promptly offered to replace them with others and even replace the 3rd species that was about to molt with others. I trusted him to choose the species and I was far from disappointed! Originally supposed to get 6 total but instead I got 7 and all arrived healthy, active, and ready to defend themselves. Packaging was A++ with great labeling and proper insulation.

    This is my second shipment of healthy, sexed at impossibly small sizes, desirable, scorpion genera from buthidaebomb. He's knowledgeable and has a fantastic variety of offerings.

    Purchased a few Androctonus mauretanicus scorpions. The scorpions were healthy and well-packed, shipping was very fast. Rowdy kept great communication and was very helpful answering questions. I would not hesitate to purchase from this seller. Very happy customer :)

    Pros - Awesome communication, good prices, healthy animal, flexible.
    Rowdy is an awesome seller! Great communication through the entire process. Very quick to answer questions. He just made the entire process run so smoothly, from first communication all the way until the package was in my hands. I requested a delay in shipping twice (once due to scheduling, and a second time due to risky temperatures), and he was more than happy to accomodate!

    Very nice, secure packing job. My new A. australis is healthy and alert. I definitely plan to do more business with this seller!

    Pros - Selection, communication, packaging, fast shipping, pricing and hands down the best customer service in the hobby
    Cons - None
    Rowdy was awesome to deal with from the start. I was chatting on a thread with another member here about our "Holy Grails" when he informed me that he had some of mine coming in (Leiurus jordanensis) and gave me a chance to preorder them before they sold out. We got to talking and he was even able to get me a couple others that I had been searching for for a while. The whole transaction was smooth and easy. I ended up getting quite a few more specimens from him once I found out his amazing selection, and I already have another order in with him and I would highly recommend him to anyone

    Pros - Easy to deal with. Great communication. Knowledgeable. Very helpful
    Rowdy was awesome. Notified me he had a pair of Androctonus Australis hectors coming soon and gave me an opportunity to pre order. I was hesitant at first but he reassured me he would do his best to make the transaction as smooth as possible. And he kept every word of it. Took all the pre cautionary measures. Checked for temperature. Coordinating with me on shipping. Did everything to make it as convenient as possible

    Pros - communicates fast, excellent packing, healthy scorps
    Buying from Rowdy was very easy and the whole transaction went smoothly. He even went out of his way to squeeze in a little time to get them shipped out that same day I contacted him. Packing was perfect: thick styro box, scorps were in plastic tubes coated with paper towels. Those tubes were also in another plastic box with a heat pack and plenty of newspaper to cushion everything. Scorps arrived healthy!

    He is very knowledgeable and helpful!
