Thanks

POSITIVE. I dont know quite where to begin. After over five years in the hobby and sending out many male T's to their death (breeding loans) I actually got something back. I sent John two Holothele "NDS" males to John and he not only got a sack, he got two. He picked up the shipping for my half of the slings, and he sent me six, yes six freebies of different species. John's communication was spot on, and he was a joy to deal with. I will def. do business with him again. Thanks again John.:clap: :clap: :clap:

I cant say enough good things

John is a stellar person with awesome stock and is more then willing to walk you through every spider on his table if you let him. His enthusiasm and passion for the hobby is infectious. My only regret is that I never have enough money to spend at his table at the Taylor show.

Yup!!!

John and I traded slings for slings and he gave me an overcount of healthy little farts. I am sure we will do biz in the future and I can recomend him to anyone that wants what he has.

Thanks John!!!

I had never ordered online until this order and it was a great 1st experience! Besides getting sale prices, I got a discount for joining his forum. I ordered 3 spiders originally and I ended up recieving 10 (2 spiders he doubled and 5 freebies)! I got overnight shipping for the cheapest price I have ever seen, and his packing was top notch. They survived a trip through 100 degree temperatures and the idiotic Fed-Ex driver who put the package in my mailbox. His sling sizes are true and not exaggerated. Apple is honest and knowledgable. My little ones are healthy and feeding now.

Another A++++ Postive Deal with John

Me and my buddy purchased some wonderful animals from Mr. Apple at the Taylor Reptile show. Picked up some 4 baby scolopendras and a couple of pairs of scorpions and a vineragoon. Great animals at great prices! I have been dealing with John for awhile now and his love for the hobby and knowledge keep me coming back.

Keep up the great work John!

My son and I bought some critters from John at the Taylor show. Very good prices and John was awesome to talk to for about an hour about his collection and last trip down south. I appreciate John's $10 (3/$20) sale on some rare species. I am also looking forward to doing a breeding project with my son and the Green Huntsman my son bought. I know I will buy from him several times again.

I don't mean my son and the spider are the 2 subjects, obviously - even though it reads like that. My son bought the female Huntsman and I will buy a male for us to breed them.

Well if you change your mind and breed your son to the huntsman let me know. I would purchase some of the offspring : )

Excellent trade!

POSITIVE!

I just completed a nice trade with John today. It's our first time doing business together. Several years ago, John and I had a beef on the internet over something stupid mainly caused by internet communications. That type of situation is a major problem in how people can't understand a person's tone of voice, attitude and general demeanor. We both put that behind us and did a nice trade and the one lesson to learn here is people should talk on the phone and not rely on emails and chats on the net.

John and I are both very enthusiastic and passionate about our hobby and we have much to talk about concerning tarantulas and other invertebrates. Concerning this particular trade, his communication and packing was excellent and the quality of the inverts traded was superb. I highly recommend John for those seeking nice trades or purchases from him. A+ seller and passionate hobbyist at heart!

I did a trade with John, at the reptile show in Taylor. He is a good man and knows a helluva lot about spiders and creepy crawlies. Looking forward to the next show to see what he has to offer.

Just did a trade with John that has left me speechless. He has got to be one of the most generous breeder/suppliers out there... I won't go on about what a softhearted family man he is.....but.....:)
Thanks for the help and the support, John. You are a genuine GOOD EGG.

Gratitude and Respect,
