I saw that Chase had recently produced some Avicularia rufa, which I've been after for some time. I inquired about purchasing some and he promptly got back to me to make the deal. He even took the time to find me the best deal he could on shipping which I very much appreciate. I Ended up getting 5 Avicularia rufa and 2 freebie Caribena versicolor. Great transaction overall and would buy from again .
Chase is a standup AB member and breeder. On this particular transaction he knows I travel for work a lot, and he knew I was waiting YEARS for one his breedings to produce a sac. However once one of his females produced slings, I could not take delivery for a month, then winter arrives!!! Well Chase waited over 6 months due to winter and my work schedule to provide me the species I had been patiently waiting for over these past few years.
Flighty MMs with voracity. Knowledge shared through great communication.
Thanks to Chad, I began and completed a good rotational group of MM diversipes (in one transaction). The guy knows his Avicularia/Aviculariinae. Other than coming across his name on the boards, I mostly knew it through those who’d confer with him. Although he may not know it, Chad’s input weighed into a few Avic related decisions, one of which may have even prevented a possible hybrid. Palpal structures aside, males often prove difficult to distinguish once matured. He may not share this opinion though.
Although our initial trade fell through, he’d already got my attention. He was willing to work with me, to make sure I’d got what I needed. I’m grateful for this, as well as his infatuation and knowledge of these remarkable Ts.
Quick response to messages, super easy to work with, excellent quality animals.
Purchased two Ts and had them shipped to a friend.
CEC was awesome and even accommodated the need to hold off on shipping for a week because of an unexpected work conflict.
Definitely suggest this seller to others and I won't hesitate to do business with him again.
Willing to work with buyer
Willing to offer advice
I purchased 4 A. sp. amazonica (manaus) from this user. He was willing to work with my budget and cut me a bit of a deal. He couldn't get the slings shipped on the agreed upon date, but he sent them the next day with two freebies included. Everything came alive and healthy.
I agree that many MMs of Avic spp. can be very difficult to identify and MMs of different morphtypes and color forms within a species are pretty much impossible to distinguish...
P.S. My name is Chase... Chad (advan) is my brother and he couldn't care less about Avics. Lol
