    Pros - Everything was packed very well.
    The tarantulas were lively and ready to bolt.
    Communication
    Cons - None at all
    I've ordered from Steve before, so the fact I ordered from him again should make it obvious that I will buy from him again.

    A few weeks ago Steve posted a thread about his breeding success on another forum, one of the species mentioned is Heterothele gabonensis, and that happened to be a species on my want list for a while, so I asked to be notified if the breeding/hatching was successful, as I would buy 10. So a few days later I get a message asking how many I would buy, as numbers were a bit limited. As I said before, I would order 10 (which I did). It was a bit of a wait as they were molting.

    Fast forward to today 10-16-19 and they have arrived. Packing was excellent it was a different way of packing than I was used to, but what matters is the condition of the slings, which of course was excellent and and there was more than10 in there. Communication was very good. Text, PM, etc... doesn't matter what form of communication because Steve makes sure to keep buyers up to date.

    I will buy from Steve again without hesitation.

    Pros - great care with all aspects of transaction
    Cons - none
    Purchased a group of Psalmopoeus spp. from Steve. Just before packing to ship, his spidey senses kicked in as he suspected that one was about to molt. Sure enough, a fresh irminia popped out of her old exuvia and he responsibly delayed shipping. His care for the T's well-being was paralleled in all other aspects of handling the transaction. Excellent communication with updates, great packing, and a very healthy set of Ts. Thanks Steve, will definitely keep an eye out for your postings!!

    I traded my MM to Steve for a B. klaasi, and also purchased a B. albopilosum. They arrived exactly when he said they would, and were packed safely. He even included another sling for free that he himself had bred last year. Good experience overall.

    Thanks Steve!

    Pros - Steve remembered me and reached out months after my initial inquiry which is so rare. Many dealers would just forget.
    He is very responsive and answered all of my questions in a timely manner.
    The tarantula arrived on time and packaged very well.
    His prices are very fair.
    Cons - None
    I ordered a female A. rufa and was very satisfied with my entire experience. I will definitely be ordering more in the future and would recommend Steve to anyone looking for a tarantula.

    I made a transaction with Steven and it was amazing. Everything was way above par. I just love dealing with members that are above and beyond with everything. We talked and shared pics of T's for a week. I'm super happy with the prices, packaging, and specimens.

    Steven is just an A+ guy. I'd buy from again anyday!

    Pros - Healthy spiders
    Great packaging
    Fast shipment
    Cons - None
    Picked up a Euathlus sp. Blue Femur and a couple Brachypelma sabulosum slings, both species I've been trying to locate for a while. I sent Steve a message and got a response quickly, I sent payment and the spiders were shipped the next day. I got them today and they look great! Very well packaged and he even threw in another sabulosum sling as a freebie. Very happy with the new additions!

    Thanks again!

    Purchased a MM L.nigerrimum from Steve, easy transaction, quick to respond, and great communication. Packaging of the T was excellent! A little shipping delay kept the T in shipping for a week, He arrived alive and fiesty! Hope to do business with Steve in the future, Excellent dealer!

    I was able to pick the tarantula up myself so no shipping fees. The molt was available for examination. He was very informative, not just about the tarantula I bought but about other tarantulas as well. I really appreciate the service and I'll definitely be buying from him again.

    Pros - Great communication, Iridopelma hirsutum Freebie!, perfectly healthy specimens, took the time to show me his collection, overall an awesome person!
    Cons - None!
    Steve answered a WTB ad I posted here. I was able to meet him locally and see the T's before I made my purchase. All of his T's are very well taken care of, and Steve is very knowledgeable about all of them. I will absolutely be buying from him again, VERY soon!

    Thanks again Steve!
