I am open to working out a trade or sale, but of course, I must also reserve the right to deny any offer for any reason. I also will not make or encourage anyone to make any transfer I know to be in violation of USDA regulations. If you want to make a suggestion, then please use my contact page to send me a message. In your message, I ask that you provide a link to a review page on a major US hobbyist forum (e.g. Arachnoboards, Beetleforum, Mantidforum, or Roachforum), so I may verify your good standing in the arthropod hobby*. I am very selective with whom I trade.

The above having been stated, I am interested in a wide variety of arthropods, with a particular interest in Therea sp, US-native Dynastes sp, native and exotic millipede species not in my collection, expansion of my isopod collection, Archimandrita tesselata and other large blaberids, and any species of amblypygid.

*I myself am a relatively new hobbyist, so I understand if you do not have a review page. Nevertheless, I would like to see some online platform that showcases you and your work with arthropods.
