Communication - Very open to messages , Great Pricing, Great Selection
Was looking for P. sp. 'all green' and Joe had them and at a great price! Also, cannot thank him enough, sent me an X. intermedia that I've been eyeing even though I didn't have enough money at the time (set up a payment plan). Great packaging, one of the best I've seen, the animals literally just walked right out and were very lively. Great communication, it was my first time having a box held at the Fedex location and I must have been a bit annoying with the questions, but Joe answered them all and was not annoyed at all!
I had been looking to purchase the species Phormictopus sp.green full green for a while and no one had one so when I seen that he did I immediately went to purchase one. Everything was great the communication the shipping I would definitely order from him again
-Arrived fast, and the slings were nice and healthy
-Joe is always fast to comminicate
I've dealt with Joe a few times in the past already, and have never been let down. He has a fantastic selection of rare species that are always in excellent health. Not long ago, I purchased a few Megaphobema mesomelas slings that all are nice and healthy. As with all my other transactions in the past, I never had to worry about any spiders in the order as he takes great care of everything. Don't hesitate to jump on whatever he has before it disappears.
I bought an MM from Joe and it was a great to encounter such a responsible seller. He texted me several times about shipping options and then gave me a picture of the shipping label, and other information I needed. Even offered to answer question about M. balfouri reproduction. Great seller. Will definetely buy from him again, once I get some money hahaha.
Patient, met me in person, great stock of less-familiar ts as well as deep knowledge of arachnoculture
Lives farther from me than I thought he did...
I had the privilege of meeting with Mr. Rossi to buy some slings. I got to our agreed upon meeting place late due to traffic and my ignorance. Joe was cool about it--at least I hope he was....
Yes...beautiful animals at a better-than-fair price. But they were less important than his wealth of knowledge about, well, everybody and everything in arachnoculture. We talked until our meeting spot closed, and I came away with some fine slings and an education--as well as serious scuttlebutt--from Joe's centuries in the exotherm world.
He's a good and honest guy.
His ts are top-notch.
He knows everything and he shares what he knows.
Imagine a walking arachnoboards with a better sense of humor and none of the neckbeard elitism.
Unfortunately, I can not review Joe's prices because I have not yet purchased from him. So please don't take my low stars on his prices as a bad thing. I'm required to fill that in.
I received a p everetti male from Joe yesterday. This is a very rare male(quite possibly the only one in the US) so I greatly appreciate Joe loaning me his male. Hopefully we can be the first to produce this species in the country.
Joe's packaging was great the male arrived safe and was very calm. I certainly look forward to possibly purchasing from him in the future!
Great communication, shipping was excellent, healthy spiders
Joe is absolutely wonderful to work with. He has great communication , his shipping is perfect and the spiders are healthy and active.
Joe was willing to work with me on my order and was patient and kind during the whole process. Would not hesitate to buy from him again!
Purchased a spider from Joe and as always great packaging good communication and always great to have a conversation with. You can't go wrong with Joe. Just don't piss him off and you will get your spiders in one piece. He! He! Thanks Joe.
I will keep this short and to the point. Bought a 4" female Aphonopelma steindachneri (formerly A reversum) from Joe, and like the previous two purchases from him, I am pleased with this transaction. Price was good, communication was good, packaging was good, and there were no delays in shipping. I recommended buying from Mr Rossi.
Packed well with heat pack and insulation due to the cold.
Joe sent me a 7.5" P. Regalis and a 6" P. Metallica. There was some concern due to the cold both where he is (California) and where I am (Florida) but he timed everything right so the T's arrived perfectly fine. And both are GORGEOUS. I would definitely buy from them again.
Nice packaging- vials arrived with visible humidity, heat pack still warm
Thanks again Joe for another great group of specimens! Joe brings in the rare species which I am thrilled to be able to add to the collection. Communication is clear and prompt. Pictures sent of any requested specimens. Prices reasonable, even for the rare ones. No complaints on packaging as everyone always arrives alive and well. Ready for my next purchase!
Wonderful clear communication, great variety of choices, healthy and beautiful Tarantula!
Out of 1-10, I would give Joe a 100!
I purchased a beautiful G. Pulchra from him, he has been super friendly and patient with my million and one questions, and it was such a pleasure seeing his gorgeous collection. I love his clear and thorough communication, educating me about everything I needed to know, I feel so privileged to have met him! He is so knowledgeable and I am in love with my new companion Thanks so much Joe!!!
