    David and I completed a trade recently, with my grubby mitts getting ahold of a purty T. gigas chickie pie. He packed well, and there was no question when the box was supposed to arrive. Additionally, he accomodated my rather hectic schedule of late and ensured I received her only when ready.
    I'd gladly buy from, trade with, or sell to ;) again. Good stuff!

    David & I had a trade a month or so ago, he had a male GBB that I have been looking for for months. I traded him a T. gigas female. Transaction was very smooth, great communication, all around great deal for both sides. Look forward to dealing with him again. Highly recommend. :clap: :clap: :clap:

    I had made a purchase from David in the past, so when I saw that he was selling a pede that I've been wanting, I jumped on it. Of course, this deal went as smoothly as the first. David's communication, packing, and animals are first rate. Always a pleasure to do business with!

    Just did a trade with Mr Beard and everything was GTG. Packing was excellent and everything ended up perfect. Even though the USPS was way late and had us worried,(my end of the trade was lost for over 2 days) it all worked out great in the end:)

    This trader/seller is on top of things and trustworthy, highly recommended.

    I purchased a Chaco from David earlier this week and had a flawless transaction. He was prompt in answering my inquiry about shipping the tarantula by Priority mail and agreed to ship it this way instead of express. He had great communication throughout the transaction and checked to see how the Chaco and the freebie C. gracilas were doing after they arrived! Both inverts arrived in great health and were well packed.
    I would highly recomend David for your tarantula and scorpion purchases!

    David is a great person to deal with for the following reasons:

    1. Great communication start to finish.
    2. Great packing job. Not just good...GREAT, the best I have ever seen. You just have to see it to believe it.
    3. Nice prices.
    4. Delivered the goods as promised...a healthy female A. minatrix.
    5. Threw in a freebie, totally unnecessary, but appreciated.

    Deal with confidence. David has my highest recommendation without any reservations. :) {D :clap:

    I ordered a 3" in female E. pachypus from David (another late post, sorry( seems to be a pattern does it not??)), everything went great. The communication, shipping, and T was great. I wrestled with the spider for fifteen minutes trying to get its paper towel away from her lol. Thanks David for a great spider!! I will try to do business again.

    Just received my animals in trade from David and I couldnt be happier. I sent David my P miranda and H maculata (with a little bit of cash) and he hooked me up with C cyaneopubescens, N chromatus, E eutuman, A geniculata, and a small herd of discoids to get me started in the roach world. Packing was fantastic. Shipment arrived as planned. Everyone was healthy and happy.. thanks so much David, you can bet we will be back to do more business ( like when my regalis gets a bit bigger!!)

    Once again, David has come through with excellent communication, packing, and beautiful healthy Ts. This is not the first time I've done business with David and it certainly won't be the last. I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend him as a truly excellent source of top-notch quality Ts.

    I had a very positive experience working with Dave. I placed an inquiry about an individual he was offering and received an immediate reply. Within minutes I was on my way to purchasing the tarantula from him and then was plaqued with a severe dial up problem and a string of unbelievable paypal account issues. It seemed like somebody was trying to put the kaibosh on the transaction but eventually I made it work and I'm pleased to say Dave maintained good natured supportive correspondence with me throughout. He literally sent the darling out to the me the very next day and I received a well packaged, very healthy Pulchra the following afternoon.
