    Pros - Price, selection, communication, health of the T's - in other words, everything!
    Cons - None
    We recently purchased a variety of tarantulas from John to add to our website. The T's all arrived straw-packed, which is something we see very, very often. However, I must say that this was the best straw-packing we've ever seen. Everyone was very, very healthy, sized as advertised (or larger), and we're happy as can be.
    John's communication was awesome - something that is occasionally lacking in the exotic pet industry, so when we get great customer service, we notice.
    The box they arrived in was also appropriately sized. FedEx charges more for larger boxes, so this was great to see!

    I am very happy with John's professionalism and with the care he took getting me these small spiderlings. It was all done quickly, no problems at all. I had some special shipping instructions he was happy to accommodate.

    Pros - Excellent packaging, fast shipping, got a freebie
    Cons - none
    I ordered a C. Elegans and H. Sanguiniceps from John. He was quick to respond to my questions and a quote on shipping. After sending payment John shipped the spiders promptly on the next business day. They arrived well packed in a box, with each spider in a clearly labeled straw. He also included an extra H. Incei which was a really nice surprise. I would recommend this seller and look forward to buying from him again in the future.

    Pros - Great deals
    Great communication
    Great packaging
    Fast shipping
    Cons - None
    John is a very kind and generous person. This has to be my best transaction with anyone so far. He has the best deals around and is willing to work with you. He would be the first person I would recommend to anyone in the hobby.

    I purchased a female from him only expecting her but nope he threw in a couple of slings that I was originally going to purchase from the start. His packaging of the T's made it really easy to rehouse them.

    Again thank you very much John, I appreciate it!

    Pros - Good prices on desirable species. Freebies!
    Cons - John doesn't keep a huge assortment, but the things he has are always good.
    I have purchased from John on three occasions and all of them have arrived alive and in perfect condition. I purchased some B. albiceps and a L. violaceopes and john threw in two freebies. He gave me a good deal on the slings. In the past, I purchased a communal of 10 N. incei and they all arrived alive as well. He communicates through FB messenger very effectively and has also consulted with me about questions related to the hobby that are not related to purchases which i think makes him a better choice than some others. His prices are always decent and better than most of the competition. John is someone I will always feel confident purchasing from and recommend to others.
