    Just had an amazing interaction with Ben aka "x Mr Awesome x". He had a 2"ish unsexed GBB juvie for sale. I must say I was a little less than favorable in this purchase, I placed a small hold on the T and then wasnt able to come up with the money at time arranged due to complications with paypal. He worked with me and I eventually got everything squared away and just this morning as promised my beautiful little GBB arrived, packed like a pro and very much alive. the little bugger climbed right out of the packing cup and on to my hand.

    A+++ service from Ben....i will definitely do business again with him and i highly suggest you do too!

    thanks man!

    Ben Peterson is a wonderful man to do business with. He is an honest person and very easy to work with. I have done business with Ben over the last eight months and he has more than earned a positive review. He has always shipped on schedule and keeps open communication at all times. This last time around I received a Poecilotheria pederseni and an Aphonoplema crinirufum, both females. The A. crinirufum was a spectacular specimen, in particular, a perfect specimen to breed! Anytime Ben sells a tarantula, or anything for that matter, know that it will be in very good condition and will meet or exceed your expectations. Crows Arachnids endorses this person as a good businessman and an excellent asset to the Arachnocommunity we all thrive in!

    The streak continues...

    Ben is not only very good to do business with but an all around cool guy. He kept me posted through the entire transaction. His inverts are top notch, he obviously takes good care of his critters before shipping them out. Hes made it almost overly apparent on several occasions that he loves this hobby just as much as the people he trades/sells to. I'd recommend Ben to anyone and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again.

    Couldn't get more positive!!

    Transaction was a long drawn out process over the time span of 5 months, which was 100% my fault. Ben was very understanding and patient with the fact that my mind changed every two minutes about what I wanted from him. Also, he gave me a kick @$$ deal on a couple of slings. T's were very well packed and protected from the elements. Buy something from this guy and you will surely be one happy customer! :D

    "Mr. Awesome"... you are AWESOME!!!

    I definitely recommend Ben and will do business with with him again in the future.

    thanks again, Ben :)!
