I purchased 6 Caribbean hermit crabs and 1 Opistophthalmus glabrifrons and they arrived in excellent condition. They were expertly packaged and delivered the next day after the determined shipping date. Very quick response time and excellent communication. I would definitely recommend his specimens from this purchase and I definitely plan on ordering from him again.

Pros
  • Joe was flexible with my schedule and very accommodating. I love an hour from our meeting point and could just drop everything and go. I met him at a reptile shop where the owner was both knowledge and kind. Spent about an hour there, that was a plus.
  • Joe had a Brazilian Blue (hard to find) and the price was fair.
Cons
  • None
I purchased a Brazilian blue from Joe this morning and I am very pleased with the transaction. Because of my tight schedule and some medical needs of my children, I couldn't meet him on the day I made contact. Joe was willing to work with me and accepted a down payment to hold the tarantula I wanted. When we did meet up, he was actually there before I was, so I didn't have to wait and we met at a really cool reptile shop. I also bought a small snake to go in my palidarium. I would purchase from Joe again just for the same experience.

Ty is an exceptional seller with great knowledge of everything he sells. He’s very responsive and willing to answer any questions. I purchased a Scolopendra heros, a Hadrurus spadix, a Hottentotta hottentotta, an Adroctonus amoreuxi and was even surprised with an awesome freeby I’ve been wanting for awhile. His packaging was very professional and all of the specimen arrived safely. His prices are very fair and I’ll definitely be purchasing from him again in the near future.

This is my second order from Inland Sea. They are were super great to work with my purchase of 2 O. Violaceopes and 1 LP. The tarantulas were packaged so well that they easily survived a 4-day delay from the carrier. I was so worried they would be DOA due to the carriers delay, but they were all alive and very healthy. Inland sea is highly recommended!

Pros
  • Responds quickly and is a good honest guy to buy from.
Cons
  • None
I purchased 3 T's from John. He responded very quickly to my messages. His prices were great. He shipped my package out quickly and it was well packed. Unfortunately one of the T's died in transit. I do not know why, as they were well packed and it was a mature T. One of those things I guess. John made it right promptly refunded the cost of the DOA.
I don't blame him at all and he stood by his LAG. I can't ask for anything more.
I absolutely would buy from him again and would be happy to do it!
Thanks John!!

  • Quick to reply, quick to ship, great variety. Trustworthy seller.
This is the second time we have bought from Orin, first time getting a box just for me. Orin was excellent! I have had no luck getting anybody else to contact me back and Orin really came through for me. I would definitely recommend E and A to others!

  • Eh....?
Ok so I purchased 6 slings on april 30th and requested them to be shipped out on monday so I could be at home tuesday to unbox. I had chosen usps overnight, originally and when I was sent the label info, it was for 2 day shipping. I had messaged and let him know it got switched and he was nice enough to switch me to fedex overnight at no additional cost to me. Tuesday morning arrives and my package arrived about 2 hours earlier than the tracking had estimated, which was awesome. I open it and the inside was a tad cold, everything was packed down fine though. The container with the slings was on top, packed under crunched up papers was the heat pack, which was nice and warm still (not sure why the box was cold). I open up the little container and the 6 slings were in color coded straws taped together with a label for each set.i bought 3 LPs and 3 dwarf baboons all at 1/4". The LPs were alive and well but all 3 of the baboons were unfortunately DOA. I message him and let him know, he apologized about it and instantly gave me a refund. I wasnt mad or upset because I know accidents happen and even told him that. I will order from him again and will recommend his services in the future as well. I've ordered from a few different places online and people on here and his communication is absolutely excellent! Very quick to get back to you and VERY nice about everything. Once again, thank you!!!

I have purchased spiderlings at least 6 times over the last few years from Inland Sea Exotics. Each transaction has been marked by exceptional communication, excellent pricing, and very thoughtful flexibility in both scheduling meet-ups and/or timing shipping. I have ordered with both 2 day shipping (as we both are located in Florida, this turns out to be overnight often) and local pickup when I have the day to spend traveling, Packaging for pickup has been excellent in that their arrival container is a perfect enclosure for the near future, and shipping packaging has always been top notch. In the very few, rare, instances where there was a DOA or concern, Inland Sea has been very helpful and accommodating in rectifying the situation. They are my #1 choice when considering new additions!

I ordered several millipedes and a starter culture of isopods. All specimens were packaged in a sturdy box, and they all arrived alive and well. The seller is timely in his responses. I would definitely order from him again.

Pros
  • This is my first pet tarantula and i was extremely happy. I had a hard time trying to find a GBB this time of year, and he had a sling for only 60 bucks! Super affordable!
  • Excellent communication! Stayed in touch with me the entire time, even though I'm sure i bothered him quite a bit.
  • Great packaging! Box lined with styrofoam, packed with packing peanuts, tarantula vile wrapped in brown paper with some breathing holes in the vile, T wrapped inside. T was 100% safe
Cons
  • I do not have any cons with this seller. Everything went far better than my expectations!
Amazing seller, as stated in my pros/cons. I ordered a C. Cyaneopubescens as a 1.5 sling. It was in excellent condition, extremely gorgeous, was easy to get into its enclosure, and it immediately began exploring for where to web. It was extremely quick and was packaged excellently. I would (and most likely will) purchase from this seller in future months. I can share a photo of the little friend I got too! Its name is Nimhe
