Pros
  • Good prices
  • Healthy Ts
Cons
  • A little confusion in communication
I purchased a female A. Chalcodes from this seller 12/1/2020 and did not hear back for about a week. I sent an email out on 12/8/2020 and the seller responded within the hour and indicated that they had been sending me emails about the weather and how that impacted shipping. I think what happened is that their emails may have been put into my spam folder or just did not reach me (not the seller's fault). The seller sent out the T on that day and I received her today. She is beautiful, active, and visibly very well fed. Very happy!

Pros
  • Packaging
Cons
  • Health of the specimen
  • Poor Communication
I have purchased from Ken The Bug Guy many times over the years. In the past I have always had great service and received healthy specimens.
Unfortunately, the most recent purchase I made was not good. The animal was clearly in very poor condition, exhibiting obvious signs that it was in rough shape and at the end of its life. Yet it was sent anyway. Additionally, communication was very poor.
I am not sure what happened to the quality control, but I do not plan on making any more purchases from this vendor.

Yes
Pros
  • Tarantula arrived quickly and showed no signs of stress
Cons
  • NONE!!!!!
I purchased a male Arizona blonde to (hopefully) pair up with my female next season before the winter stasis. I could not be happier with this purchase! The male arrived safely showing 0 signs of stress or trauma and was ready to eat less than 48 hours after arrival. He's not mature enough to breed this season, but that is fine with me because I have more time to spend with this pleasantly dispositioned T. Thank you again Ken, I can tell that you take good care of your Ts and pride yourself in them.
