Pros
  • Great variety of inverts. Fairly quick replies. Prices are reasonable. Inverts come in healthy and well fed.
I’ve bought a couple times from him and every time they came in good health. I really do like that he has pretty good variety of spider species. Below is a Harmicon I bought from him a while back.

Yes
Pros
  • Quick Shipment Rare Pets
Cons
  • Minor scuff on the centipede, but otherwise fine.
I ordered a scolopendra gigantea black from Tom and it was quick to receive him. He sent it the following week and gave me some freebies. Animals arrived perfectly fine.

The scolopendra gigantea had a missing forcipule but it's not so much a worry as they grow back. I assume he just missed it while packing.

No complaints otherwise.

Pros
  • Outstanding packaging Good prices Cares for the wellbeing of the animals
Cons
  • Minor delays in communication
I ordered five Sicarius Thomisoides and a few Selenops radiatus from Tom. The shipping date we originally agreed on didnt work as they all went into premolt around that time. Not wanting to risk injury to the spiders, Tom delayed shipment for a few days until they had all molted. When they did arrive, I was pleased to find an incredibly well protected package with insulating, reflective styrofoam. Each specimen had been carefully packaged in a small vial with soft tissue; the Selenops had theirs slightly moistened. I had also received not only the free S. thomisoides but also three extra free S. radiatus besides the one I had paid for! They are all active and healthy. Most of the Sicarius immediately buried themselves and the Selenops explored every inch of their enclosure. Tom took a little longer than some other dealers to respond to certain emails and texts but this was a trivial issue. This was an overall satisfying experience and I'm very privileged to own my very own sand spiders courtesy of Tom Patterson.
