    There was a review thread for them on Fauna Classifieds.

    Im confused.

    Isnt the answer to an inquiry about a shop going to be a review in one form or another?

    I appreciated all the responses to this thread. Plan on doing business with Nerd at some point.

    Absolutely not, actually. A review is about a specific transaction. A response to an inquiry is more generic in nature, not referring to any specific transaction. It can also be character wise, about the individual person (owner, salesperson, etc.). A review can not be solely about the individual.

    For example:

    "How is so and so?" "Oh so and so are wonderful and super friendly. You will not be disappointed" <---- Acceptable reply to an inquiry.

    "How is so and so?" "Oh so and so sold me a P. metallica. They packed well and had great communication. I highly recommend them" < ---- NOT an acceptable reply to an inquiry.

    Hope that helped to clarify. :)

    For the record, I didn't want to post a review; I was trying to answer his question. I'll just PM next time, thanks!

    Zach, I had a really good experience with them.

    I've found their prices of practically everything to be over what I would buy it for. I think it's a slight case of buying a brand. They are the..front-runners of ball python morphs, and are quite well-known. I typically stick with small-time personal T breeders if I want a tarantula. Like the mom and pop shops over walmart, you know? :p

    A bit over priced with respect to their T selection, but Kevin and his operation (N.E.R.D.) are renowned in the reptile trade as an innovator, hugely knowledgeable and more upstanding person. i know of someone who has bought snakes from them. You could check out some of their YouTube videos to get a feel for them.
