    Pros - Perfect packing job! USPS decided to give the package an extra couple days tour of the country and the packing saved them.
    Extras! Ordered 3 P. ornate and got 4 and all arrived safely despite the USPS.
    Great Communication from John.
    Cons - None. T's were a little chilled after the extended trip but came out OK.
    T's were of really nice size and price was great!

    Will not hesitate to buy from John2097 again. I'll just make sure I pay the extra for overnight shipping! I trust John, but not the USPS.

    Pros - Easy to deal with, good prices, and good quality, healthy animals
    Cons - Packaging was a little tight
    Some of the larger spiders were packed a little tight but other than that everything turned out great and was very healthy and fat upon arrival.

    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 :)
