Prompt communication and waited to ship until the weather was good.
Withheld two stars on packaging. There weren't very thick paper towels used to cushion the tarantula and she ended up outside of the paper towels. I understand sometimes tarantulas can get on the outside no matter how tightly you wrap them, but in this case I think the lack of good paper towel wrapping contributed to this.
Overall great transaction. The tarantula is beautiful and as described. She ate the day after shipping and is very healthy. Would purchase from this seller again.
Great packaging, fast shipping, and fantastic communication
I had a group of slings I wanted to offer up and seeing what he had to offer I talked to him about a trade. I shipped first since I was waiting on other slings even though he wanted to ship the ones he had for me on same date. I told him it was unnecessary and I waited until all would be shipped at once. Everything arrived perfectly from the pokies to the tiger rumps. Definitely doing future trades and purchases with inlandsea without hesitation.
Great selection, good communication, healthy tarantulas
A great selection of T’s offered at reasonable prices and my slings arrived in perfect condition. Seller was easy to work with and coordinate shipping with weather and my availability. Thank you for a smooth transaction!
Great communication and customer service, great packing, healthy slings
Purchased a P. muticus sling and P. murinus sling from Michael a couple days ago. He had great communication throughout, shipped quickly and packaged them perfectly! They arrived earlier today in perfect condition and healthy! I will definitely order from Inland Sea Exotics again. Thank you for the great transaction Michael!
what can I say the pictures below can't :D I wish I had ordered more lol
Great experience for a first time Tarantula pet owner I will definitely be ordering a lot more. I had the idea I would just get only these 4 but.....yeah I got to get more now, I just need room and cash 1st lol
Good prices, great selections, communicated thoroughly and quickly, everything came well packaged
Bought 4 specimens that all arrived quite well. I'm overall very satisfied with this purchase! I would definitely purchase from Inland Sea again, and will keep an eye on what is offered for sale in the future.
His Ts are healthy, and he worked with me so much, even though it was hotter than hades' crotch where I'm at when he shipped. I honestly have yet to come across a more accommodating dealer. I would 100% recommend
Just completed a sale with Michael - sold him my recent sac of over 300 B. vagans. If you're looking to sell or purchase, he is a great guy to do business with. He is quick to respond to your questions and equally as quick to pay! He was very helpful with how to count and package my slings for safe shipping, since this was my first experience doing this. He also offers a fair price for your slings. If considering doing business with him, put your mind at ease and do it - you won't be disappointed!
Excellent prices for some very nice slings. Packaged well, 2 day ship from FL to IL.
I will be going here for future T purchases. Slings packaged very well in drinking straws, safe and sound. Excellent communication from the seller, was prompt and patient with my questions. The slings look good, healthy and energetic. Still doing great! This was my first sling purchase and I am happy to say it was a pleasant experience!
Prompt responses by email, shipped quickly, packed well
I ordered a 1" GBB and a 1/4" Mexican Red Knee. The seller got back to me quickly with an estimate of shipping costs. Payment was easy via PayPal. The package shipped Monday and arrived Wednesday with both spiders packed in plugged up drinking straws inside a deli cup. I would recommend this seller and will probably buy from them again.
Very easy to deal with, great packing, healthy Ts, good communication!
I traded one of my MMs for 3 little slings. I got a Chromatopelma cyaneopubescebs, Hapalopus sp. Columbia, and a Psalmopoeus cambridgei! Both sides of the trade arrived well. They are goregous and healthy slings! Super happy with the trade.
Easy to communicate with. Seller was fast to get me a shipping estimate and then a Paypal invoice after I emailed in my order for 3 different T slings.
3 slings arrived in nice packaging:
1" B. albopilosum
1" L. parahybana
3/4" A. avicularia
All of them arrived in good shape through the 3-day shipping option. The B. albo was the biggest of the bunch, followed by the A. avic. They're all in good shape and eating pinheads. Seller was so quick to communicate with shipping estimate and paypal invoice. Shipping was 3-day USPS from FL to MN. They shipped out on a Monday and arrived on Thursday. Was happy that the temps we mild and they arrived totally perfect.
Michael answered all questions I had as a first time online buyer, and had great prices and a good deal on shipping. Both spiders arrived alive and are both very active. Packing was very clever but not hard to figure out and was very secure. 10/10 wonderful seller. Would recommend to other first-time-shippers.
