Gottarantulas (Jason) had arranged with me to replace a couple of Curly Hair slings from a previous order that ended up not surviving. I at the time wanted to purchase 2 OBT slings at 1.5" to go with the shipment. I sent over $56 through PayPal. He stated he was out of town and would "likely" be able to ship them Monday when he returned home. Thinking he was an honest, legitimate seller, I ended up with an order of $156 with him. I wanted 7 of the OBT slings to go with the Curly Hairs that didn't survive the last trip. His ad here on Arachnoboards stated he had around 18 OBT's at the time. Shortly after sending the money, he took down his entire pricelist! I sent numerous messages to him with no response. He has appeared online and ignored my inquiries about my payments to him. I have filed a dispute with PayPal to try and recover the money that he took from me and he has ignored those requests. Avoid gottarantulas (Jason), unless you want this same thing to happen to you, possibly worse! I thought at first maybe his communication was just a bit faulty and needed improvement. No, this guy is a complete fraud!
The selection of Jason's tarantulas were a good variety to choose from. The sizes of the specimens I received were bigger than anticipated. He shipped on the day as he promised and the animals were well fed and appear very healthy. I noticed that I ordered from him years ago and I'm glad that I chose to buy from him as a return customer. Thumbs up!
We purchased multiple spiders and are very pleased with them all! There was a slight hiccup in communication about the timeframe for shipping, but it was apologized for and all worked out fine! The Ts arrived well packed, clearly labeled, and in perfect health! The prices were also awesome!
I got the most perfect P. smithi from Jason. Lol I forget when I actually bought her, but he held her for me until we both felt comfortable with the weather. His prices are on point also!
My new baby is literally perfect <3
Throughout the entire process Jason was very quick to respond which is always a plus. The three Psalmos that I bought were at probably the cheapest price point you could find on the net. Also the packing was top notch. All in all this was a great deal and I would recommend him to anyone looking for Tarantula's.
Very healthy spider!
I purchased a female B. albopilosum and couldn't be happier! The spider arrived in wonderful shape, packaged to perfection, and extremely healthy. Price was very reasonable and communication was great!
Positive review:. I’ve done few transaction with Jason in the past and all of them were fantastic. Keeps constant communication and honest guy to deal with. Know that you’re in good hand when dealing with him. Highly recommended.
I purchased a 1” Brachypelma albopilosum from Jason.
From the very beginning (messaging him) to the end (receiving and unboxing), whole transaction is satisfying.
1. Conversations were very willing & helping.
2. He even covered shipping charge for me. (Thank you again)
3. Great packing. (He even included a deli cup with ventilation holes & coco fibers in a ziplock bag)
4. Tarantula I received is very healthy and in great size!
Responsible and accountable
Some lapse in communication
I purchased 5 very well-priced Poecilotheria specimens from Jason and was very happy with the transaction overall. His packing is great, he is more than willing to make up for any issues on his side of things, and he is a very reputable person to make transactions with. There was a lapse in communication for a week or two after some shipping delays due to molts, but Jason got back to me as soon as he could to explain and offer up a shipping upgrade for free. I really appreciate working with him and look forward to doing more business in the future!
I purchased a lot of 5 B. albopilosum slings from Jason. The only real downside of the whole deal was that he was on vacation when I sent the payment and couldn't ship until he got home. But that's really not an issue. I would definitely recommend him and will definitely buy from him in the future.
Open to reasonable negotiations
Fantastic! Really happy with my 3" P Cambridgei who threat poses if I even touch his enclosure but won't bite the tongs, paint brush, or anything haha. He just cowards away. And the 2" C. Marshalli has beautiful patterns and for here acting very sluggish and fat but after I let it alone over night it made a burrow and webbed the top so hopefully it'll molt for me soon. Overall super happy with this purchase
