Another easy pick-up purchase with Joe. I picked up my first Xenesthis species from him this last Saturday and just like last time the process was super smooth and easy. Before I even met up with him in person we were in contact over the phone and I was able to see a photo of exactly what I was going to be picking up, then again in person I was able to see the tarantula up close and personal before closing the deal. the T was happy and healthy and was a breeze to house and seems to be settled and is eating so there's not much more I could ask for. I 100% recommend buying from him, I know I'll find myself buying from him again in the future
This is the second time I have purchased a tarantula from Joe, and it was another great transaction. The spider arrived quickly and was packaged well. This particular transaction shows the care that Joe puts toward customer service. I contacted him a couple weeks back about a rare species, but he indicated he thought he had them all sold. Some time went by and, after a couple of the spiders of that species did not sell, he contacted me to see if I was still interested.
I met with Joe to purchase a sling today, as he offers in-person pickups as well. The whole transaction was really smooth and Joe was super nice to work with. I had been scouring the internet with my list of specific dwarf/true spider species I was looking for, one of which is pretty rare in the US, and Joe’s listing had most of them! As this is my first invert, I had so many questions and Joe patiently answered them all. I’m really excited about my new spiders. Thank you Joe!
Messaged Joe on Friday afternoon with a list of slings I was interested in. He was out of a couple so he suggested some alienates that were great, and within 90 minutes we had a deal done and the slings shipped Monday morning.
Too easy - Joe is awesome to do business with. Anyone that has specific questions can feel free to message me directly.
Super helpful and responsive; awesome transaction!!

I messaged Joe on AB on Friday morning and he responded within an hour with his cell # and said to text because it would be easier to communicate. I texted him and gave him a list of specific species I was looking for, plus a few general types and asked for suggestions within my price range. Joe responded immediately with pricing and suggested some amazing options for the others. I wasn't too excited about one of the suggestions and asked if he'd recommend anything else, and he replied back immediately with the perfect species for my request. All in all, I purchased 5 amazing slings from Joe by midafternoon on Friday. Payment was easy using Paypal. Joe messaged me on Sunday afternoon with tracking and pics of the exact slings he would be shipping for my order, and he shipped on Monday and texted to confirm it had gone out. By Tuesday morning my package had arrived and was ready for pickup and Joe texted me and let me know (although I'd already gotten it). He and I exchanged a few texts while I was unboxing the shipment to make sure they were all in good shape - which they were. Nice and alert and ready to explore their new homes!
Couldn't be happier with Joe and the experience I had with him. Will definitely be buying from him again soon!!
I bought three slings a week ago from Joe, namely Acanthoscurria maga, A. sp balcozna, and A. natalensis. I've been looking far and wide for these exotic T's and he happened to not only have them but be close to my location as well. All three are doing good, I haven't had an issue since I picked them up. I highly recommend buying from joe if you want a reliable and trustworthy source to buy your T's from, especially if you're already near him in California.
Yet another transaction that went off flawlessly. Easy communication and lots of rare options. Packaging came in great and the heat pack was still warm. I fully intend to purchase again and would recommend anyone to take a look.
I have been dealing with Joe for a few years now, and every transaction has been incredible!! You can’t go wrong dealing with Joe! He will always find a way to make you happy! Thanks for delivering my package personally to my work!! Thanks Again!
This is my first purchase from Joe but certainly won’t be my last. He is so easy to work with and great at answering my questions. My T’s were packaged very securely and when it looked like one had some jet-lag, Joe was great about checking in on her to make sure she recovered well, which she did. He made it a great experience and the T’s are awesome!
Met up with Joe this past Saturday for another transaction. Joe is a true professional! He’s quick to answer questions and very friendly overall. He will go out of his way to make you happy! This is what’s keeps me coming back to him! Thanks again Joe!
I want to give a big thanks and shout out to Joe for making my first online T purchase seemless. Joe provided me with exact pictures of the T's that I purchased and provided me with amazing communication throughout the whole process. The packing was great, and was still warm from the heat packs. My T's arrived on time and they looked great. Oh and Joe was the only one I could find that had both T's that I wanted in stock!!! Will definitely purchase again!!
