Great selection of rare animals for a good price. Super helpful and patient in answering all my questions. Spiders came in perfect condition, packed extremely well. If you’re thinking about buying from him you should. I can’t recommend him enough!
Allllll the pros! Joe has been consistently great, and always has a great selection
This is my second time buying from Joe and he’s been really great with communication, makes himself available for any questions, ships fast, and is all around pleasant to deal with. His packaging and selection are also exceptional. I will definitely buy from him again.
This was my first purchase from Joe and I would gladly order from him again. He's got a great selection and as all the other reviews say, he's very friendly, knowledgable, and an excellent communicator. I would recommend him to anybody for their next order!
He has an excellent review from me. A true professional amongst many.
None to speak of
Joe is a courties, and very helpful person. His spiders are well kept and healthy. His response time is very good. He has done what he said he was going to do. All in all I would buy from him again and will buy again.
Mr. Rossi was amazingly prompt and helpful, not only helping me find a FedEx location, but also sending out my package same day. I received it today, and both slings are perfectly fine and healthy! I super appreciate his patience with me, as this was my first time ordering spiders. I'll definitely be buying from him in the future.
Joe was with me every step of the way, constant communication and updates. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Great service, Great selection, Great Prices. I Purchased 3 slings, a Caribena versicolor, a Ephebopus cyanognathus, and a Ephebopus rufescens. they were all in tip top shape when I got them home. Will Purchase From again as sooon as my wife let's me
I'm always nervous buying from a seller for the first time, but Joe made it a very simple process with great communication and fast turnaround. His available list is incredible and I was able to find a species I've been looking for over a year! Colorado can have some gnarly weather this time of year, but the box arrived in great condition and the heat pack was still warm. He'll get my business again for sure. Thanks!
unable to teleport spiders directly to my home with magic
I told myself that I would not buy any more spiders for a while, but I saw my friend Laila review Joe and I got an itch.
Anyway, I saw that he had a species that I've had my eye on for a while and another species that I adore but I haven't seen available often, so I reached out to Joe to ask about them. Joe was nice as usual and happy to show the specimens to me and check on them to make sure they were all in good shape. I sent him money and arranged to meet up with him this past weekend.
We exchanged goods and services in a parking lot like usual, which feels hilariously like a drug handoff. It was nice to see him and chat for a while before I headed back home, though.
My babies are healthy and adorable! Joe always shows you the specimens before you take them and makes sure that you see they are healthy, which I appreciate. I can't wait to watch these little guys grow!
I’m back! The 100 miles away customer who bought T. stirmi and N. incei from Joe. This time I bought 2 Pokies! Poecilotheria metallica and rufilata. They’re both great sizes, specially the rufilata. This time I didn’t get any freebie but he was able to get me a really good deal on both T’s, not to mention, he gave me the T’s on a temporary plastic container that I can store both T’s temporarily til they add up some size. Poecilotheria rufilata picture attached.
The pro's list says it all: Joe Rossi is a fabulous tarantula seller. His selection is amazing, and his prices are totally reasonable. He's super easy to talk to, and work with. Packaging is great, and shipping has been perfect the three times I bought a variety of different species.
I'll definitely be stalling his updated lists, whenever he updates them. You can't go wrong buying from Joe!
I purchased a Poecilotheria rufilata and a Tityus stigmurus, and he offered me a freebie Tliltocatl albopilosus which I happily accepted, and all three of them were packed excellently and arrived safely, I will most likely buy from him again at some point in the future.
He was happy to discuss rare species and answer questions. Once we finalized, we arranged a good day to arrive. Everything went perfectly. The packaging was immaculate with a clever pill box to hold the slings. Top notch seller.
This was the second time I had ordered from Joe and I was very pleased with everything! He stayed in contact throughout the whole process. He gave me a great deal too. Sent me pictures of the tarantulas and sizes and the label. I had wanted to add another tarantula to my order and that went really easy! Shipping was very fast and packaged very well. Heat pack was included and still hot when I opened the boxAll slings arrived healthy and alive. I even got a freebie that I didn't have. If you're debating on ordering from him, don't! Just go for it because you won't be disappointed. This will not be my last time ordering from him too.
I’ve bought and traded 20+ T’s with Joe over the past six years and never had a problem. He’s always honest and up front about the transaction, follows through on what is promised, and he’s got people skills so he can communicate clearly through text, email, etc. My transactions have always been in person, so I have no experience with packing/shipping, but I have no reason to believe those transactions would be any different. Can’t give this dealer a higher recommendation—no reason to hesitate buying from him.
