Dealer Reviews item created by Elytra and Antenna, Jan 17, 2016
Pros - One of the best in the hobby.
Cons - None
Bought some Isopods from him. They arrived alive and a few extras. He is one of the best in the hobby and one of the easiest to do business with
Pros - Excellent selection of uncommon/rare arthropods, great packing, good communication and healthy, high quality specimens
Cons - None!
Bought a small group of Deropeltis paulinoi from Orin and am very very happy with what I got. Great communication throughout the transaction, packing was excellent and two of the roaches even molted during shipping! Was a little nervous when I saw the molts because they would be soft, but not a tarsi was out of place on those individuals. I've bought a couple times from Orin in the past and will be very happy to continue purchasing from him in the future (maybe some rare amblypygids next time too!). Highly recommended seller, definitely check out his future FS lists!
Pros - Great communication and information
Watched the weather to ship at ideal time at reasonable rate
I purchased five young yellow-spotted pill millipedes (Glomeris pustulata) and have been very happy with them! They are beautiful and seem to be in good health. For being immature, they are already a good size and I look forward to seeing how they look as adults.
It is always a pleasure to do business with you -- thank you!
Pros - Healthy and lively specimens, has a large selection to choose from, great prices and fast communication
Cons - none c;
I ordered about 6 different species of isopods and some rainbow millipedes from them. There was a package delay on usps's part when the items were shipped, but luckily everything arrived safely, though luckily (aside from expected moralities of the smaller species) unharmed.
I chose this dealer as the prices they had were such good deals, as the isos I wanted were often double of what e&e wanted for them.
I also got some jelly in the package, which was a good treat !
Definitely will be purchasing some more items when I have the funds.
Pros - Good communication
Ordered a set of Zebra pillbugs on Monday and received by Thursday. They arrived in great condition, lively and I was very satisfied. Would buy again!
Pros - Perfect packaging. Evryone made it! Bright colors!
First trade on the boards. I learned some things from this one. Thank you for havibg patience! I took notes from their grest packaging. Mine will be sent out like a pro from now on.
Pros - Smooth and easy communication; great packaging; fast shipping
Everything as described and healthy on arrival. He communicated with me back and forth to choose the best date and method to ship. Animals arrived in great shape and I'll definitely be watching his for-sale lists in the future. Thank you!
Pros - Excellent communication, willing to hold animals for you, great shipping and beautiful animals!
Cons - none
I purchased a few millipedes from Elytra and Antenna on Feb 2 but unfortunately had some horrible weather for a few weeks so it was not safe to ship the animals. They were incredibly nice and willing to hold the 'pedes until temps were up to safe levels to ship. Excellent communication during the entire process and ended up receiving my 'pedes safe and sound. Has some really awesome animals, would definitely buy from again in the future. =)
Pros - Excellent specimen selections, great communication, great packaging, very helpful with inquiries.
Cons - None.
I recently purchase a book, several sp. of roaches and 1 pair of D. diadema from Orin. Everything about the transaction was great. I highly recommend Orin. He has beautiful specimens from his collection. Also very professional and helpful.
Pros - Quick and secure shipping, Good prices, and Generosity
Cons - 0
I made an order of two Apeuthes sp. and a group of E.decipiens - he very kindly sexed the millies for me and sent larger specimens than what were on offer along with including two free beetle jellies and a copy of the latest issue of Invertebrates Magazine!!! There was just one small problem, instead of Eurycotis decipiens, I received Dorylaea orini.
I let him know about the mixup and when everything was said and done, I ended up getting to keep the orini and received a second shipment containing the decipiens and a very cute M.brachycerus that I ended up ordering afterwords.
I applaud Orin's generosity throughout the process and definitely plan on purchasing more inverts from him in the near future!
