Pros - Packaging, selection, communication, knowledge.
Cons - Absolutely none!
We just completed a purchase with Dustin for a few different scorpions, Babycurus jacksoni (regular AND chocolate morphs), Hottentotta jayakari and Tityus stigmurus.
We are very, very happy with the entire transaction. Dustin was very concerned about temperatures, both in his neck of the woods and in ours. Often people just want to ship an order and make some money, and Dustin's willingness to wait for warmer temps shows that he truly cares about the scorpions he breeds. The fact that he breeds these himself is also a HUGE plus in our book - who better to buy from and ask questions of than the breeder himself?
The scorpions that arrived were all very healthy - great colors, healthy size (not over or under fed), and generally fantastic.
Dustin's communication is awesome, and he was tracking the package himself to make sure it arrived on time.
Overall, we are VERY pleased to recommend Dustin for your scorpion needs, and we will ABSOLUTELY be purchasing from him again.
Thank you for the incredibly kind words and the lengthly review Erik! I know it was a long wait but I'm glad you're happy with the transaction! :D
Pros - Very good communication, general and specific knowledge, packing and shipping, and a kind and considerate approach to the hobby and in interactions
Cons - None at all!
I moved from New Zealand to the U.S. for university and I wanted to get back into the scorpion hobby. I had not even moved to the U.S. yet, but I contacted Dustin and he was immediately helpful. I inquired about a few Tityus spp. I was interested in and he offered a deal for a group of ten, plus two freebies of T. stigmurus. He was very kind and knowledgeable in our discussions and is a great guy with whom to work. He responded quickly, and packaging and shipping was very well done. I was surprised to hear from my family that the parcel had arrived on the same day I had, and it was a wonderful treat after a long trip. It is clear that Dustin truly cares about his work within the hobby and about sharing the joy of the hobby with others. Dustin was concerned and careful about shipping in the cold weather in the U.S., which indicates his sincerity and professionalism. All the scorpions arrived safely and soundly and are doing well - several have even moulted. I would not hesitate (and am eager) to work with him in the future!
Pros - Always amazing to work with. One of my favorite dealers
Cons - None
Dustin is alway a pleasure to deal with. Friendly and helpful as always. Have purchased fromantic him multiple times and will continue to do so.
Pros - Great communication and everything I purchased was exactly-as described in his ad.
Cons - NONE!!!
Bought a large order of scorpions from Dustin and he was very patient when I needed him to wait a few days for the funds to arrive. Everything arrived well packed and in excellent condition. Dustin has a repeat customer in me.
Pros - Everything
Great prices, freindly service, nice selection of arachnids. I ordered a 5i B.jacksoni chocolate morph and 2i T.stigmurus. Both arived alive and kickin. The B.jacksoni in particular is quite a stunner, picturses dont do it justice. He gave me a deal on the two of them together and shipped them out exactly when he said he would. I will be buying from him again.
Pros - Healthy scorpions, great packaging, great communication
Cons - Nothing

Great seller, great packaging, great quality, great everything! Ordered a Liocheles australsiae and a Centruriodes gracilis and both arrived perfectly fine with my local weather being in the 90's! Definitely recommended!

Weirdly enough this is the first transaction I have done with Dustin. Made a trade for some scorpions. Everything was fantastic. Dustin is a true asset for the hobby and I would not hesitate to put my name on the line for him.
