They were so kind to let us go to that even if we weren'...t purchasing anything (we still gave a donation:) ) The whole time they acted nice, friendly, fun and even gave us information about the little guy. Great pleace!!!! THANK YOU!!! See More

We got our new pet spider in the mail yesterday and she is settling in well in her new home! Thank you so much, everything in the process of getting our spider was seamless and perfect!

My son and I had a great experience ordering from Ken, he cares about his customers all my emails I sent he responded to very quickly, he is easy to talk to, answered my questions thoroughly . This is intelligent and highly educated on the tarantulas, bugs etc.that he sells, he is open and honest, he was upfront about a defective leg when my son expressed interest in a certain spider.Our order had a sand spider & the grab bag thats value was above&beyond the price. My knowledge on tarantulas are minimal, but my 17yr old son is extremely intelligent regarding reptiles arachnids etc (he has quite a collection of spiders&snakes) he was running around so psyched about the grab bag, it had 3 awesome tarantulas, my son kept saying WOW! Ken sent me such cool tarantulas, guess he was not expecting the rarity/assortment & he was thrilled, its def worth it to get the grab bag. So all 4 spiders, came well packed, in great condition, and dealing with Ken was a pleasure. I would recommend this guy to anyone who wants outstanding spiders and a great online buying experience.

I bought a Hogna Sp Tucson from him, it came in with a damaged legs and sick. I told Ken about it and he gave me a replacement since the spider wasn't going to last long due to its condition. Received... my replacement Hogna today and oh my god, she's such a beauty and in perfect condition! I definitely would recommend him to anyone who's interested in buying spiders or Ts online, he's very patient when I was constantly writing emails to him about my order and spider which I really appreciate about him :) See More

I won scorpions from ken but headed for vacation when they where supposed to be shipped. He held him for me till I got back plus some other mess's that happened with PayPal--worked with me through it ...and they made it safe and sound--packing was awesome and definitely the best to deal with!

I ordered a Rose T with overnight shipping, and had her held at FedEx rather than bumping around a truck all day. She is fat and healthy, and I could see this becoming a major hobby. Thank you, Ken!... She is just lovely...and I hope she likes Kentucky. See More

I ordered my very first spider (Pidippus Regius) from Ken and the spider arrived alive and well (Despite it arriving a day late for next-day shipping due to a shipping error on FedEx's side). The FB a...dmin was punctual and knowledgeable when I asked questions as well as the person handling e-mail. I want to expand my collection and I will certainly be doing it through Ken the Bug Guy.

I've ordered from Ken a few times, and never had a d.o.a., and he never shipped during hazardous weather conditions and informed me that there would be a delay (and why). He has the most amazing inven...tory I've ever seen, I can't recommend him enough. He gets in spiders I've never knew existed! If you're experienced or new to inverts, Ken is the only vendor you'll need. See More

People are kind when buying from them and the packages come in quickly when ordering :) If ordering a spider they ship in a very protective vile (If a baby) so be sure to be ready to handle them when ...they are a fast species :) . Gave it 4 and not 5 because I wanted to labvle it 4.7 but there is none and the comment./message section on the website does not work if you have any issues with your orders. BUT if you message them directly then they will respond in about two hours after messaging them. See More

I ordered three P. dictator from Ken. Unfortunately, one of them died shortly after I unpacked it. However, as a result I was able to look at the dead specimen under a dissecting microscope, and was a...ble to confirm that they are indeed Pandinopsis dictator. (Formally Pandinus dictator.) The other two are alive and well however, and Ken has refunded me for the one that died. I've put some pictures in the comments. See More
