Communication was fast and very helpful and knowledgeable. Tarantulas were packaged amazing, And all arrived very healthy looking. He gave me such a great deal on everything that I had bought aswell. Definitely will be going back.
Pricing was straightforward, and Todd’s communication was excellent. I had already placed my order, but when a tarantula he knew I would be interested in was available, he let me know and gave me a really great deal on it. I also appreciate that he created a discount for returning packaging, so shipping vials and styrofoam don’t end up in landfills. When my box arrived, he made behavioral notes on the individual containers so I could take extra precautions, if necessary. I would absolutely buy from him again. Fantastic selection and great pricing. His whole process was really consistent and that’s reassuring when you’re buying from a seller for the first time. His level of experience is definitely reflected in the way he does business.
Couldn’t be happier with this purchase. One of the 3 Ts I ordered molted and they were quick to email me and inform me of shipping change. Communication is huge for me with sellers. The 3 arrived well packaged and looked healthy. Will buy from this seller again. Great experience!
I can't say enough good things about these guys, Martin and Amanda are wonderful people and provide excellent quality animals for extremely fair prices. The animals came very carefully packaged within eighteen hours of being shipped, and are extremely healthy. They prioritize delivering healthy animals and providing customers with excellent service, and were great about communicating everything to do with the order. All of my animals have since eaten for me and are exploring their enclosures. The variety of tarantulas they try to keep in stock is huge, and they try to get in new/weird species whenever possible. Prices are all excellent, probably 1/2-1/3 that of anything you'll see at an pet store, and they also offer seasonal discounts and bulk purchase deals like 5 for $25 or 3 for $90 that can reduce the prices even further. The animals were packaged inside rolled damp paper towels in vials, which were then placed in a thick insulated box with plenty of padding and a heat pack that stayed very warm for over 24 hours after the package arrived. They were very interested in making sure the animals were healthy after I received them, and asked that I contact them if absolutely ANYTHING seemed worrisome. All of the animals I received are healthy, and began exploring their enclosures within 24 hours of being housed. They all ate within 48 hours of being housed, and are now acting like normal, healthy spiderlings.
10/10 across the board, I would absolutely recommend this dealer to anyone looking to buy tarantulas or other invertebrates in Canada.
After reading all the positive reviews on Joe, I decided to finally pull the trigger on a few Ts he had in his stock that I couldn't find anywhere else. The communication during the process was nothing short of amazing. Far as shipping, everything arrived in perfect health and the spoods were bigger than expected. I will defintely be doing more business with Joe in the future.
*GREAT communication (he answered every last one of my questions)
*Fast shipping (had my T shipped out early the following morning after purchasing)
GhOst was very pleasant to do business with. He answered all of my questions immediately. His packaging was the BEST I've ever seen....honestly, even better than some of the well known tarantula breeders online. Don't hesitate to do business with him, I highly recommend. I received a healthy, alert, and mild tempered C. darlingi female that I couldn't be happier with!
The prices were very good and he gave me a freebie for driving 100 miles to pickup the speciments.
I highly recommend Joe! I just signed up for an account on Arachnoboards yesterday around 1-2 AM. I saw his post and I contacted him immediately due to the prices he was selling his Ts for. When I woke up in the morning, he already responded and we had planned to meetup. He's located in Temecula and I live in Reseda so it's really far. He told me that he would be willing to meetup in Menifee which is 30 mins away from him just to save 30 minutes of my time and I gladly accepted the offer. It's still far but 30 mins is 30 mins. LOL! When I got to the meeting place, he then showed me the Ts I bought from him (Theraphosa stirmi & Neoholothele incei gold). After checking, he gave me a freebie (Neoholothele incei olive) for the effort of driving 100 miles (this is 1 way and another 100 on the way home). I was surprised and so thankful! It's definitely worth the drive and would definitely buy another T in the future from him! Buy from Joe guys! Not to mention since I just started last November getting into the hobby, I have tons of questions for him and he answered them very patiently. You won't be disappointed!
Can't think of anything to list as a con, so all pros
Great service, never had better communications with seller, takes care of his animals, Had an animal to be shipped, molted the day before , he let me know and held up for a week so the animal would arrive live and good condition, A true professional. If i had more then 2 thumbs, they would be up. Recommend Highly
Phenomenal seller, quality inverts and excellent packaging!
Would you purchase from again?
One of the best private sellers that I know of!!!
Updated me on everything, communication was TOP-NOTCH
And COOL freebies
I recommend Darryl to everyone! He's a professional breeder and you couldn't ask for a better seller... and I've bought from MANY other companies, private sellers, etc. Darryl is easily top 3 of the best you can find!
I purchased 15 gold N. incei slings. All my questions were answered promptly. Purchasing was very easy, and the packaging of the slings was top notch. Would definitely purchase from them again in the future.
Really love this shirt! The color (I got Azalea) is extremely vibrant and the design is well done. The only con of this shirt for me is that the sleeves run big but I do have pretty small arms. The rest of the shirt fits great.
