Tim was fantastic to deal with. He has spiders no one else has. He was very professional and courteous. Just a pleasure to work with. Spiders arrived healthy and well packaged. I’ll definitely buy more aphonopelma from him in the future!
Bought a Scolopendra aztecorum from Tim, and was thrilled to get a gorgeous, healthy animal. Easy to get info and pictures, get a particular shipping day set, communicate with in general etc etc. Great stuff!
I ordered several different species of Diplocentrus scorplings, all at below market prices. I opted for overnight shipping even though I’m only a state away to ensure safe delivery. Shipping price was very fair. Scorplings were packed very safely in a styrofoam lined box. Each container was clearly marked with species and quantity - with a pleasant surprise of several freebies! Many more scorplings than I ordered. All were transferred to their new living quarters to settle in. The following day I dropped in some flightless fruit flies, and the little guys starting promptly catching and eating. I also put in some prekilled crickets which were consumed. All are showing that Tim takes care of his stock - very healthy animals. I’m looking forward to my next purchase from him.
Purchasing from Tim was an excellent experience. He had some less common Aphonopelma I had to jump on, some of which were even captive bred. Everyone arrived safely, thanks to Tim coordinating around a cold snap we received in my area immediately after purchasing. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on his stock.
Second time buying, just as happy as the first time!

I reached out to Tim again to see if he had any more Paloma group dwarfs or Aphonopelma gabeli still in stock, since he has the good stuff and my last order with him was so pleasant. Although dwarf species that I didn't already have were unavailable, he did have some amazing specimens from the Marxi species group, as well as Aphonopelma gabeli at a very good price. I've wanted A gabeli for ages, so I started with that and compulsively added A peloncillo, A catalina, and after a slight nudge, A madera (because why not).
Tim shipped out my order yesterday as he said he would, and all specimens arrived today, packed well and very healthy. They are all gorgeous! I've housed them and will feed them later today after work.
I made a purchase for the first time from Tim and I'm ashamed of the fact that I waited this long to do so. Anyway. His communication was superb, even when he had other things that were vastly more important, he still took time to make sure the purchase went smoothly.
There was an unfortunate death of one specimen I had originally ordered, which was NO fault of his own, and Tim was nice enough to fill me in on the situation and gave me two options, a refund, or something else from the price list, I went for another species obviously. If you have a passion for US Aphonopelmas, Tim is the guy you should be going to, as he has quite a variety.
Now for the packing and quality: everything arrived alive and well, so that right there should be proof that his packing was very good. The individual specimens were all feisty and active.
Would I order from Tim again? Absolutely, without hesitation.
I ordered some scorpions from Triprion (although it was tough to decide what to select from his huge variety) and they shipped quickly. He was nice enough to send me sexed pairs, all of which were professionally packed and healthy. I would highly recommend this seller and wouldn’t hesitate to order again!
Great communication, awesome selection, great prices
Bought five pedes, got five plus two extra! I've owned a variety of species for a few years nown buying from a variety of sellers. Tim is an absolutely a pleasure to buy from, awesome specimens. Packaging was great, communication was perfect. He really cares about his animals and their wellbeing. I absolutely will be buying from him again, I recommend him fully.
Tim was a pleasure to deal with. I was blown away by his selection and prices. I figured it was a long shot that he’d have 20+ of a particular species I was looking for but he came through. His communication was quick and concise and he watched the weather at my location very closely to come up with a plan as far as a shipping date was concerned. Looking forward to buying from Tim again. Thanks!
Prices are incredible for what Tim offers, he responds to every question I shot at him and was very respectful and kind.
Sadly one of my tarantulas died during shipping which I believe was due to the T molting during the transit. The death of the tarantula was NOT AT ALL, due to Tim's mishandling of the shipping or packing and I will definitely buy from Tim again in the future.
Great, transparent dealer who has INCREDIBLY GREAT PRICES. Tim replied to questions upon questions with great respect and kindness. He is direct with what he offers and his prices are honestly unbeatable.
I can't say enough as to how pleased I am with this purchase. I am thrilled to have the verts I bought and I think the prices were very good. He delayed shipping until the weather was a bit cooler, which I really appreciate. Everything was well packaged. Great guy to purchase from and I definitely will be buying from him again. Thanks Tim!!
