    I ordered an A.Purpurea sling from Paul. I received the package the very next day in perfect condition. The heat pad was exceptionally warm especially considering its the middle of winter. If you're looking to buy ANY tarantulas I strongly suggest you go to Paul. He has answered all of my questions and been very helpful with the care tips of my new addition to my T family.

    **UPDATE** (Jan. 7th, 2012)

    Well the It has been about 5 days since i recieved my a purpurea from paul becker. IT's is now dead due to some weak batch he gave it to me from. Also Mr. becker stated the tarantula sling to be about a size of one inch. But it was more like .75 not it was merely 1cm guys. I've had 9 tarantulas since i've joined this hobby and i have never had one dead until today. all im saying is plz provide what you actually state in your advertisement. I went to paul to because prices were reasonable and sizes were decent. Now i know never to go there i might as well pay few dollars to extra. I've learned my lesson.

    First of all A.purpurea are born at half an inch, NOT 1 CENTIMETER .. the ones I have are about 6 months old.. As you may well know, the males grow faster than females.. True the spider I sent was a bit short, but he requested a female(3/4in). Also.. I brought in 50 of these spiders some months back and only 2 have died in the time I have had them.. Harris called me when he received them and was very happy..but here we are 5 days later and it's dead.. what does that tell you..? I don't think that this spider was weak.. I think he killed it on accident.. He tried to call me today and I was not available until 7 o'clock tonight and I promptly called him back.. after he left me a nasty message on the phone and was cussing at me... Harris.. this is not the way to resolve a problem.. Most people would have just waited for a call back before slamming someone.. ......When I called you back I said that I would give him a free A.purpurea......Even though it was 5 days after he received it , I still tried to make him happy.. I don't feel that this negative review about me is justified at all.. I spent plenty of time with him answering questions on the phone and e-mails before he purchased it.. and I did everything possible to teach him about to keep tarantulas..even the ones he did'nt get from me.. So thanks for slamming me without giving me a chance to fix the situation and your welcome for all the help I gave you over the past week.. SHEEEESSSHH!!!!

    I refunded the tarantula anyway...Here's the proof of refund..

    I ordered an adult female C. schioedtei and an I. hirsutum sling from Paul. They arrived right on time, fat, lively and well-packed. The sling was bigger than I expected and my schioedtei girl is a beauty! He threw in a freebie G. pulchripes too.

    He answered all of my emails immediately and went out of his way to ship my Ts. when I needed them. The quality of the animals I got is top-notch. I couldn't be more pleased.

    Very nice effortless (on my part) transaction and I am 100% satisfied with my order.

    I ordered from Paul a couple weeks ago everything was immaculate! Will def order again soon, his communication through the whole peocess was top notch!
  8. I ordered a B. Smithi sling from this guy and it came packed very well. The sling is doing great and is healthy. The prices on this mans website is very acceptable and you will not find a better deal elsewhere. He was also very good with communication and sent me emails and is quick to respond to all my questions.

    positive A++++

    Been out of the hobby for a number of years and just recently decided to get back in. After a bit of research and review reading I decided to go with Paul for my first order. I ordered an A. Versicolor and a P. Regalis. Both are spiderlings. Paul was awesome and prompt with email responses, my order was shipped out yesterday and arrived at my doorstep today. Both slings came out very active and healthy looking. Great first experience getting back in the hobby. Great prices too. I would do business with Paul again without hesitation.
  11. Perfect!! A++++

    I have ordered dozens of tarantulas over the last 10 years+ from Paul. I recently purchased a C. darlingi and a B. boehmei.
    Really healthy, beautiful specimens and both doing well.
    Paul has always been extremely helpful, professional and a pleasure to deal with.

    King Baboon and Singapore Blue

    I recently ordered and received a King Baboon and Singapore Blue from Paul. I have been buying from him the past three years as I have much respect for him and he enjoys talking tarantulas. I spoke with him numerous times via email and by phone as well. He was very helpful as always and shipped exactly what I expected. Both of these tarantulas were exactly as he described in size and very healthy. His packing was top of the line. I highly recommend Paul to anyone who is interested in tarantulas. He has a large variety of tarantulas and if he doesn't have what you want, he will look for it. A++++++++++ all the way. Keep up the good work, Paul.

    I recieved my latest T from Mr. Becker yesterday. I ordered it. He delivered it on time and as advertised. I've purchased from him on other occasions, always on par and without incident and will continue to do so. And the best part is that he's local as on one occasion I had the opportunity to pick up my order at his location. As a seller he is personable and very informative. Kudos!
  16. Just ordered from Paul the other day and gave me a pretty dang good deal on 8 T's... Shipped them when I asked and they arrived when he said they would. All were present and accounted for and as for the sizes, a couple were actually larger than he described! And not to mention none of them looked like they missed a meal. Thanks for the great deal and I plan on doing business with you in the near future :D

    I ordered a P. metallica sling from Paul that was on sale for a great price. Communication was great - he replied quickly and was very kind and accomodating. The sling arrived on time and in perfect condition. Will definitely do business again with Paul in the future!
