Pros - Smart guy
Cons - None
AAA+++ Steve has a great reputation and his T's are healthy as possible. He is quick to offer his knowledge and experience. All around a good guy to deal with. Easy to communicate with and a pleasure to purchase from.
He is a really understanding person. I placed an order for 5 of his tarantulas. Since it was a cold winter he was unable to ship and offered to hold. He gave me updates on them constantly, sadly one passed during a molt (male) and he let me know instantly. In my personal life, I'm gonna be moving to a place where I can't keep Ts and he was really understanding and seemed genuinely sorry that I have to leave the hobby, rather than being upset of losing an order. He seems like a really good guy and given that he is still in the hobby when I return I see myself ordering from him again!
Thanks Shane good luck!
Pros - Great packing, awesome communication, all around cool to work with
I purchased a male versi, male avicularia avicularia and female pamphobeteus platyomma, all came in great shape, the versicolor attempted to molt in his shipping container but was fine and molted great, i defenitely look forward to doing another transaction with him soon.
Pros - Exactly as described.
Worked with me on meeting for pick up.
Packaged perfectly for me to transport her home safely.
Provided molt history and last day of feeding.
Steven Doud is an amazing seller to work with. I was able to communicate with him easily. The G. Pulchra is exactly as he described and he made sure she was safe during transportation, even though we met to pick her up. Arranging a date/ time/ location for pickup was a simple process. He was happy to explain any questions I had. He provided a molt history and her last feed date.
Really nice, great guy that clearly takes pride in all the fine details for each transaction. I could not be happier. I’m looking forward to purchasing from him again.
Thank you Steven!
Thanks Candace! Hope you enjoy watching the little girl grow.
Pros - Great to deal with! Good communication before and after shipment.
Cons - None!

Pros - Everything
Cons - nothing
Ordered a Xenesthis intermedia female from Steve. Shipped on monday, but the post office messed up and I didn't get the package till Wednesday (totally P.O. fault, nothing to do with Steve). But thanks to the excellent packing job, and his inclusion of a long lasting heat pack, the spider was totally fine. Excellent communication throughout the anxiety inducing P.O. issues. Definitely would purchase more from him.
Pros - Great communication. Tarantulas are in great shape.
Purchased tarantulas on Saturday. Shipped Monday and delivered healthy on Tuesday. Great communication throughout. Definitely would do business with again.
Pros - Great price, great shipping, great communication, great everything. Highly recommended
Purchased a female Bumba Cabocla and could not be more pleased with my purchase. He made made sure everything went accordingly through the whole process. Received her healthy and without any problems. Would make future purchases without hesitation. A+
Thank you very much enjoy the lady.
Pros - Local dealer, extremely knowledgeable, ready contact in case of questions, provides molt records.
Cons - None to speak of.
I came across Steve's for sale ad and contacted him. By the next day we'd set up an appointment to meet at his place. He also offered local delivery for half payment up front. He's a pleasure to do business with and I look forward to buying from him again in the future.
Pros - Prompt communication, friendly, awesome animals!
Steve approached me via email after spotting a FB post in which I stated I was searching for Euathlus truculentus slings and/or juveniles, offering a sexed pair for purchase. He also provided a link to his reviews in the initial email.
Quickly upon my interest, Steve provided photos of the tarantulas in question. I'm well aware of the mess the Euathlus genus can be, but as the specimens photographed were dead ringers for the sold-as E. truculentus I own, I chose to proceed with the purchase. Very glad I did!
We shipped immediately as temperatures were safe, and utilized FedEx 2-Day. The box arrived exactly at the time promised, well-secured and undamaged, and the tarantulas inside alive and well. They were extremely well-packed, separated comfortably from the temperature pack and very calm when rehoused. The measurements I was provided were accurate and the tarantulas were as photographed, healthy, and active. Steve even included a free C. versicolor spiderling, which chose to take a tiny trip around my hand as it was unpacked.
I was impressed to begin with by the overwhelmingly positive reviews found here, and I would not hesitate to purchase from Steve again.
Thanks so much!
Glad you love the little scamps
