    I sold a tarantula to Carl at a reptile show. I had not realized that it had matured (male Chilobrachys lack tibial hooks). Carl ended up needing a male for his females so I gave it to him 60% off. The transaction went smoothly and he was a great guy to deal with. I'd definitely do business with him again (and hopefully I wont make any more mistakes:o_O:). Thanks again, Carl!

    I just got a female B. smithi from Carlton. His packing and communication were great; he always responded quickly. He shipped right on time and stayed in touch through the whole process. His pricing was really fair as well.

    I would definitely recommend him to anyone reading this!

  8. A pleasure to do business with! Carlton is very reliable and a true asset to the hobby :)
    He truly cares about the animals and only shipped when the weather was perfect. His packing was impeccable - I have no doubt that I probably could have kicked the package across the room and everything would be fine - probably some of the best packing I have seen and coupled with a still cool ice pack there's no possible way for the slings to.arrive anything but alive.
    I traded a unsexed B.smithi and a few other slings in return for some fimbriatus slings and when I received the package I was pleasantly surprised! There was a gorgeous A.metallica AND A.urticans - both species which i wanted! They we're decently sized as well - at least 3rd instar - as he doesn't have them for sale I believe he gave them out of his personal collection! All just because I had to wait a bit for a heat wave! Carlton - if you ever need anything please hit me up, I owe you!
