    I placed an order with Swift's Invertebrates and I couldn't be happier. Well packaged, healthy T's. Great communication, a surprise freebie, and some freebie feeders. Just awesome!:T:

    Ken the Bug Guy didnt meet my expectations, so I will have to check these guys out. The deli cups I ordered were dirty and used...my babies arrived healthy...but it being dirty and packed with newspaper...put me off.

    Jaimie's a good dealer too. Super packaging and she offers priority shipping which is cheaper than fedex overnight. Swifts and Pet Center ship fedex only.

    I'm expecting a Spider enclosure and pinhead roaches from Jamie's, should arrive by the end of the week.

    Yeah that fed ex overnight shipping killed me...

    I already found my next T I want, and I plan to order it from her, she has them. An Indian Ornamental. I'm also ordering enclosures from Jamie's Tarantulas. I'm not getting the new T just yet though. I have 2 new T's to keep me occupied for awhile...and they took up all my money lol. Plus Updating their enclosures first. But yeah, I'm hearing nothing but good things, that's cool and good to know, as I'm not going back to who I ordered my new baby from.

    Just completed a transaction with Swift's. Ordered a Northern Black Widow and a Venezuelan Sun Tiger. They both arrived well packed and right on time. Much to my surprise I received a freebie Oklahoma Brown! PLUS, he even included a dozen small crickets to feed! A+++ vendor and will definitely do business again.

    I received my order from Swift's Invertebrates 5/19/15.
    I have nothing but good thinks to say about Kelly. The communication and packaging was top notch. All live arrivals and very healthy still. I have a strong feeling from talking to Kelly that he not only cares to provide the best customer service but also genuinely cares for the tarantulas.

    Ordered my Lasiodora parahybana from Swift Inverts on Dec. 26th, because his business is only about an hour from me I asked if I could drive out to pick up my new baby (and hopefully see the rest of his collection). He emailed me back saying his shop is closed to the public, but since we're in the same state, he would let me ship 2-day shipping for $25 instead of the $45 overnight price. My package showed up before 10 am on the 27th, very well insulated, super organized, really looked like somebody packed my baby up with love. Even though my order was only $20, he still included free feeders. The LP is my first T and Swift made it easy for me to make a purchase, 10/10 highly recommend!!!
