    Saw some Phonutria for sale late at night and emailed him expecting a reply in the morning but he got right back to me, super hard animals to find and were a great price! Ate crickets immediately when I unpacked them, very satisfied!

    Todd brings in some great stuff from Peru when available, top notch specimens. He was flexible and really made my holiday season with a gorgeous S. gigantea white legs....simply stunning. Communication and shipping confirmation was also very good, he left nothing to chance.

    Pros - The quality and state of the animal
    Great communication
    Information of the animal
    Cons - Price
    Packing and handling fee
    Shipping cost
    I bought an adult female Singapore Blue from Todd Gearheart. The animal arrived alive and well. The state of the animal appeared to be great. She was picked up in the morning and took a big dubia roach in the evening. Very active and skittish. The skittish part is expected from a healthy Singapore Blue. During the process of purchase, the communication had been great. Todd was very patient to answer many of my questions and was willing to share the information he knew. The prices are a little bit higher than that from other cellers. But it is well justified by good service and high quality animals. My only complaint is the $55 shipping cost which is a little too much higher than that most dealers in the US offer and the additional $7.50 Packing & Handling fee which would normally be included in the shipping cost. But, overall, it was an excellent experience. And I would buy from him again since he occasionally has very rare specimens available for sale.
