    Pros - Great prices, affordable shipping, great packaging
    Cons - None
    I decided that for my birthday, I was going to get my first tarantulas. As a broke college student, I did a lot of shopping around and found that this shop had very reasonable prices-- especially on slings-- which is what I was after. Plus, he had a great live arrival policy and didn't require expensive overnight shipping.

    My T's (B. albopilosum and L. parahybana) arrived on time and extremely well packaged (I can reuse the fiberfill padding for my crotchet plushies!). He even threw in a free B. vagans. Great experience!

    Pros - Very beautiful, didnt have to purchase nymphs. Didnt have any significant antennae loss, extras were shipped.
    Cons - Some of them seemed to have a little too many mites than wanted, not really a con but I dont really like dealing with the mites at all as they can be quick to infest.
    Very good, communicated just fine. The extras were very appreciated. All of them were healthy and beautiful. One was kind of dying but I saved it but the other one couldn't be saved. It didnt matter because there were so many extras lol. I will definitely be a returning costumer. The mites weren't hard to manage.

    Pros - On time and healthy
    Cons - She had a bald butt
    This was my first dealing with an online vendor although I have had a few now. We also got a Brachypelma Vagans sling for free. Redrump now has her own 7x7x11 Jamie’s Tarantula enclosure and is eating like a champ. She is my wife’s favorite. Sara the Aphonopelma Chalcodes is my feisty girl. She was a vicious hair-kicker at first, but now is becoming sweet and settled in. Thanks Dave.

      Sorry about the bald butt, some T's just dont like being restricted. These ladies dont like it at all...

    Pros - Great communication, awesome prices, healthy inverts (100% live arrival) and I received freebies!!!
    Cons - None
    I reached out to Dave about a few species of hissers my daughter and I were interested in and after talking with Dave I decided to buy them. I received everything I ordered (G. oblongonata, G. portentosa, and E. javanica) happy and healthy no casualties + extras of what I had ordered + an entirely extra species (E. chopardi) with several individuals!!! I am VERY happy with my transaction with Dave and I really look forward to ordering from him again in the future.

    Pros - Healthy tarantulas with great packaging.
    Cons - None.
    I purchased three Brachypelma schroederi, and asked for Monday shipping to avoid possible weekend delay.

    Today, I recieved all three right on time, in very healthy condition, along with one freebie Brachypelma vagans.

    I have been looking for these slings for quite sometime, and I am just glad that I came across with this great dealer. Can’t be happier.

    Pros - Excellent service and sale.
    No-fuss purchase of a P. sazimai sling. The packaging was excellent and he threw in a B. vagans freebie! Both arrived in good health and I'd order from him again in a heartbeat.

    Pros - Communication, Price, Shipping, Packaging, Specimen Quality, Unexpected Freebie, Seller’s Honesty
    Cons - Absolutely None
    I inquired about a certain specimen Dave had for sale a while back desiring a female. Dave was immediately up front and advised he believed all of his specimens were probably male. Honesty like that is generally unexpected in sales, especially when it would have been absolutely honest for him to say, “Hey, it’s a sling. I don’t know”. This situation impressed me so much, I kept an eye on The Invert Shop until I was in the market to buy.

    When I wanted to snag my first Phormictopus specimen, a P. auratus, I saw Dave had some. The price was outstanding, so I ordered. I received tracking information that the sling was shipped the evening I ordered it. The sling arrived healthy, active, and larger than advertised. Additionally, I discovered a freebie B. vagans in the box. This was totally unexpected as I had not made a significant purchase as far as cost.

    This guy is tremendous! Buy stuff from him, I will again.

    Pros - Slings were larger than expected-included freebie Dubia Roaches and an extra sling-Great prices-outstanding packaging (triple boxed and 72 hr heat pack)
    Cons - Absolutely nothing
    Sent Dave an email with questions and received a response within 10 minutes. Dave shipped my order the very next day. Dave went out of his way to supply me with a variety of Dubia Roach sizes as my freebie. To my surprise he also included a 1 1/2” B. vegans sling as well. A species I did not own and considered ordering. I was concerned about the tarantulas because the temperatures were only in the 20’s the past few days. When they arrived they were triple boxed, insulated, had a 72 hr heat pack, and every tarantula and Dubia Roach was alive and well. I will definitely be purchasing from Dave and theinvertshop again.
