I've purchased 5 from her so far and she knows arachnids and insects like no one else I've talked to. Might be the entomology degree. She was more than helpful with giving me excellent husbandry advice for the 4 I purchased from her today. Absolutely great source for a first time buyer or a seasoned T owner.
This is the second time I have bought from Kiffnie and both times have been an absolute delight. It's a great experience to buy from an expert like her... amazing to know that I have a female, even at thumbnail size! Her packing of my T albo was the best I've ever seen. Spider was in a tiny vial with stuffing, which was wrapped in paper toweling, in a tupperware, which was itself placed in a small foam cooler and packed in with brown paper. That shipping feels like it could have survived apocalypse. She also included a vial with a couple small crix (nice bonus!) and the previous molt mounted to a dish, that was used for sexing.
Communication was perfect, shipping was fast as soon as weather allowed, and pricing more than reasonable. She is absolutely my seller of choice.
Kiffnie was very polite and prompt with her service, answering as quickly as possible. There was a little trouble with FedEx delivering on time as it is getting close to the holidays and due to COVID, but I have no doubt that Kiffnie would've tried to resolve the issue if it ever escalate to more than a slight delay. I was able to pick up the T's from the local shipping center the same day they were supposed to come so it was only a 7-8 hour delay rather than an extra 24 hours. The T's came with a petri dish with their previous molts taped to their containers. The T's looked responsive and healthy.
Ultimately, I would most definitely purchase from Kiffnie again.
So happy I came across this seller. They are able to sex very small molts, so the cost is greatly reduced. The females cost the same as buying 2 unsexed slings and you aren't guaranteed a female. I really appreciate the molts sent with each girl, you can see the little spermatheca. I will absolutely be buying from this seller again and I couldn't be happier!
Molt shipped with tarantula as evidence that the t is female
great shipping and packaging
Kiffnie was cordial and answered all my questions and concerns. The packaging for the Ts was exceptional, and the Ts I received were in perfect health. This was my first time ordering off the Arachnoboards classifieds and I'm glad I did, and would recommend this seller to anyone.
Kiffnie is great! I bought a 2" female B. hamorii from her. Kiffnie communicated with me throughout the process, including after the package arrived. The T came inside a cup of wet paper towel inside styrofoam with crushed brown paper surrounding that. I knew the molt was included but I was surprised to have all four of the last molts mounted on a plastic dish with a top. Very great deal for the price! Would definitely order again!
It’s a sexed female tarantula. She provides the molts she used to sex your tarantula.
She is second to none when it comes to sexing tarantulas. We have an extensive collection a lot of which we bought from Kiffnie as sexed females there’s no better feeling knowing you have a guarantee female when you make your purchase. This is Bonnie our new Bumba cabocla guarantee female tarantula.
Great communication, answered all my newbie questions!
She has a pretty good inventory, very patient, answered all my questions. Even went out of her way to meet with me in person.
She helped me out with packing up my new T's.
I definitely will do business with her again.
