Born in Utah, as a young kid, I had a fascination with the animal world. Since age 5, I have kept as pets, reptiles, arachnids, insects, birds, fish, among others, and at age 12 worked for several pet stores. In 1984, I was lucky enough to work at Zooherp, Inc. in Sandy, Utah with one of the old time greats Louie Porras. After working many years with Louie, taking care of venomous and non-venomous reptiles and arachnids, I moved from Utah to Mississippi in 1994. Realizing I had a green thumb...

This was my first time ordering from Kelly after speaking to him for months and hearing fantastic things about Swift’s Inverts. Communication was incredible from start to finish and Kelly was more than happy to supplement my research with his own experiences keeping the animals I was purchasing. The prices are AMAZING and the package was shipped out very quickly and he kept me updated on timing and delivery. When I received my package it was extremely well packed, the heat pack was secured, and everyone was lively and healthy. Kelly also gave me some tips while setting up the enclosures. He also sent along some pinhead crickets to get me started. Incredible customer care and you can tell Kelly truly cares about the animals he’s working with, and talk about legacy! Don’t overlook Swift’s Inverts!

  • Quick to respond

This is my second purchase from Kelly Swift. The first time was back in the early 2000s having purchased an A. Geniculata, and an L. Parahybana as part of my second generation of tarantula keeping, He gave me an A. Anax as a freebie. All came in the "legendary packaging' he is known for and he was quick to respond to my inquiries. This time around I purchased a T. Albopilosum and a G. Pulchripes and got an L. Parahybana as my freebie. I received the same consistent service with the well packaged and informative literature enclosed as well as quick email communication to my inquries. Great service as always, Kelly!

Purchased from Swift for the first time several weeks ago. My order was shipped very quickly (paid on the weekend,shipping Monday). The package was delayed in shipping an additional day, but with the fantastic packaging all 5 spiders arrived safely.
Highly recommended. Will certainly be a repeat customer.
I never received an email response, but everything else was top notch

Pros
  • Great selection
  • Great packaging
  • Great freebies
Cons
  • I never really heard back
Purchased a Pseudhapalopus sp. Purple and Gold, a very exciting and uncommon find. Was also interested in a freebie and sent Kelly a message that I only really like to keep dwarf species and asked if he could do anything for me. A few days later I got my order confirmation and replied saying I would be interested in Kochiana brunnipes and would pay the differences, otherwise I would just be fine with Aphonopelma hentzi, the smallest of the freebie offerings. No response. Then a day after the package shipped I was pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of K. brunnipes and a vial of pinhead crickets. Really happy with my order, and even though I had a few days of wondering what would appear in my package, I really appreciate everything Kelly did here. Lifetime customer
