Now that is priceless yet sooooo true.
I feel bad for people who fall into the backwater trap. But then again if they did research first they would know to stay away
Likewise and very true.
Not even sure how slackwater is even still around in 2019.
Probably expo money
Oh that’s where I ordered my catatonic Brachypelma hamorii
I almost ordered my sling from them until I came across some posts saying to avoid this BackwaterReptiles like the plague, so I went with FearNotTarantulas, who I had a great buying experience. Now that I have been doing some laps around the message boards and Tarantula forums, It appears that a lot of people say to stay away from them, but no one posts exactly why (I'm sure that "where there's smoke, there's fire" applies here). I was wondering if anyone here can relate a story about their own bad experience with these guys. I'm assuming that dead T's arrived and Backwater wasn't very helpful in resolving the issue. Just wondering how bad these guys really are.
There is one thing that gets overlooked. They are drop shippers in other words, they don't even have the animals they are selling. Check other non tarantula forums, there are many more bad reviews to be read.
People have been sold miss ided Animals, animals that were sick, etc. sometime people will get lucky and dodge a bullet and everything will go smooth. But even googing reviews its more bad then good experiences.
That's pretty bad...
After finding out from PanaoN88's post about them being drop-shippers and not even being the source of the animals, it doesn't surprise me any... I am so glad I stood away from them!
Was unsure where to post this but I found this channel in an ad, good stuff
Martin puts out some good content
