    Pros - Tarantula as advertised, great communication, fast/prompt shipping, awesome packing!
    Cons - Absolutely none!
    First off it was a pleasure doing business with John2097.
    Facts:
    1) Great correspondence/communication from the get go.
    2) Tarantula was shipped and arrived as discussed (e.g.: prompt shipping), seller offered modes/options.
    3) Superb packing of the tarantula itself and the innards of the box and the included heat pack.
    4) And the kicker.........
    A freebie C.kaeng krachan was included, ironically a species of tarantula that I've been looking to purchase since getting heavy into Chilobrachys of late. Huge shout out to John, Thanks!
    A definite recommend!

    My P. sazimai hooked out and I decided to try to find him a girlfriend. John was very helpful in setting up the breeding trade and offered a generous number of slings in exchange. Great communication and everything went smoothly.

    I am wishing him and my boy luck!

    Pros - Best prices around! Packaging was excellent and the spiders were in great shape despite the cold temps.
    Cons - None
    Traded my MM for a few of John’s slings. It’s nice to see someone focused more on the hobby than making money. Definitely looking forward to buying from John again!

    Pros - Communicative, generous, informative, helpful, and professional. Packaging perfect. Slings are all full of youthful vigor!
    Cons - none
    John reached out to me a few times about my mature male Acanthoscurria geniculata, as he has a freshly molted mature female and was looking to breed her.

    My A gen was probably one of my top 3 favorite spiders, so I was reluctant to send him through the mail, but John was very nice and patient with me through my waffling and made a very generous offer for the exchange after my local breeding plans fell through.

    After some soul-searching, I agreed to send my boy off to John to do man-spider stuff with his lady spider. The transaction was very smooth: I watched some videos on packaging for cooler temps and was happy that my boy arrived safe and sound, while John sent me a generous number of slings for my collection in exchange. They all arrived today, were well-packed, and are all alive and feisty.

    John's communication has been great through the whole transaction. I hope my boy can hold up his end of the deal over there and we all end up with a bunch of fresh A genics some time next year :)

    John has always given me the best possible service, his prices are always pleasantly surprising, his communication is great, and he does business just the way I like. He ships very quickly after you've ordered and ships well, the packaging is always tight and temperature controlled great, I.e. heat pack. This was not my first order and will not be my last.
