    Pros - Outstanding packaging
    Good prices
    Cares for the wellbeing of the animals
    Cons - Minor delays in communication
    I ordered five Sicarius Thomisoides and a few Selenops radiatus from Tom. The shipping date we originally agreed on didnt work as they all went into premolt around that time. Not wanting to risk injury to the spiders, Tom delayed shipment for a few days until they had all molted. When they did arrive, I was pleased to find an incredibly well protected package with insulating, reflective styrofoam. Each specimen had been carefully packaged in a small vial with soft tissue; the Selenops had theirs slightly moistened. I had also received not only the free S. thomisoides but also three extra free S. radiatus besides the one I had paid for! They are all active and healthy. Most of the Sicarius immediately buried themselves and the Selenops explored every inch of their enclosure. Tom took a little longer than some other dealers to respond to certain emails and texts but this was a trivial issue. This was an overall satisfying experience and I'm very privileged to own my very own sand spiders courtesy of Tom Patterson.

    Picked up two gorgeous specimens locally from Tom for a great price, and they make great additions to my collection! I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again since he communicated well and the tarantulas I picked up are exactly as described!

    Pros - super secure packing, healthy animals, generous extras
    Purchased an AF B. emilia, a couple Alipes sp. and a number of slings from Tom. All animals were in excellent condition, and were packed with precision to keep them that way :) Good pricing, bonuses, clear communication - will readily purchase some philth again.

    Pros - Extremely responsive via email, great selection of spiders, very low prices, ships immediately with perfect professional packaging... can't say enough good things, basically.
    Cons - n/a
    Ordered several tarantulas from Tom. He was extremely responsive via email even though it's around the holidays, and we quickly worked something out. He has an amazing and unique selection of spiders, very low prices, and shipped immediately with perfect professional packaging. Even threw in a couple of nice freebies for me! Everything arrived fat and happy despite shipping cross country in the middle of winter. Can't say enough good things... everyone should aspire to buy/sell/trade like this.

    Bought a centipede from this seller. Fully intact, very beautiful specimen. He took the time to take many pictures before I bought it. All around good guy.

    Purchased a female on a Thursday and she was shipped right out the very next Tuesday (only because Monday was a holiday). Highly recommend buying from Tom. Top-notch quality spiders with absolute trouble-free transactions. The man definitely knows his stuff and will not screw you around. Thanks, Tom!

    Pros - Quick and informative communication. Great prices. Flexible with scheduling
    Cons - None
    Hey guys, my order from Tom just came in today. I ordered sunday night and he shipped them out the next day. I ordered a group of 5 Heteropoda lunula slings. He was very polite and answered any question I had about the spiders, as this is my first time keeping huntsmen spiders. His packaging was great. The spiders were secure and comfortable. And to make an already flawless transaction even better, he thru in some freebies. And extra H. lunula, 3 H. pingtungensis slings and 3 Barylestis scutatus slings. Yeah, 7 free slings! What an amazing deal!!!! I will definitely be ordering more from him very soon. Awesome experience.
