My first tarantulas! There might possibly be some way I could be happier or more satisfied but to be entirely honest I don't know what that could be. Swift's is definitely my go-to for everything at this point.

I originally ordered a P. sazimai female from John2097, she went into a "death curl" prior to shipping. John let me know this, and was kind enough to offer a sexed female B. klassi or my money back as an alternative. I opted for the B. klassi, and also chose to add to my order a h sp Columbia large 1''. Both arrived alive and are seemingly doing well. THANK YOU JOHN!

First time ordering and everything went great! Extra care was taken in the packaging to assure the health of the tarantula in case of delays with the delivery and she arrived in great condition. Well worth the 10 minutes it took to unbox everything!!

I purchased 6 scorpions at a very good purchase. I was worried with the shipping since it was a one day late ( no fault of the seller), but they came all alive. Overall, I would buy from this seller again, I want to reiterate the scorpions are sold at a very good and the seller is very honest. Thank You.

Pros
  • EXCELLENT communicator, EXCELLENT packaging, EXCELLENT PRICES
Cons
  • None
I've done business before with this person and there's never been an issue. He's on of the best out there. Always very fair prices, perfect shipping/packaging.

On this particular order the tiny slings had not quite molted yet. Average dealers would drop them in a vial and ship. Seller always makes sure Ts are not going to molt, and feeds after a molt to make sure all is OK.

Due to weather and molting it took a few weeks to get here- seller always gave me updates.

This is one of my "trusted sellers" from the classifieds. Will continue to buy again and again.

Very communicative seller! I asked for pictures, which were quickly sent. Very flexible with shipping times, as I needed to delay for a couple of weeks. Both of my large specimens arrived well packaged and in perfect health. Would buy from again!
