"Gave male insted of fem. Easy to work with initaly"
May 8, 2017
Would you purchase from again?:
Pros - Good packaging
Cons - Misidentified gender, refused to give a refund unless I pay return shipping
Good guy to work with initially. I asked him for females and he happily gave some pictures. The B. smithi molted right before it got shipped over, so I told him to send the molt over as well, which he did. He was happy to wait a week for the exoskeleton to harden as I requested. Oh, he also gave me a good discount
However, when it arrived, I tried to sex the molt and found no flap on the abdomen. I did a ventral ID as well. Posted both pics online, which everyone identified as a male. Eli insisted it was a female, and did not do anything to rectify the mistake. He did allow me to have a refund given that I pay the shipping. Hell no. I'm not going to pay $30 for another trip.
Overall, it's ok to buy slings from him but don't trust his sexing.
