whoever the hell this guy is he is the worst person ever. Who hucks their tarantulas into their container. o and by the way that is the worst way to keep a haplopelma
This is the worsed pet trade i have ever seen and if i ever seen this guy i would stick those tweezers right up his fucking nose and throw him in a plastic container a complete PRICK
You're wearing gloves you retard, just pick the poor thing up! If you're THAT fucking scared, maybe you're in the wrong business!
i would say that was an option but he obviously is running a larger scale import and or distributing business to have that many cups and that little experience. his best bet.. hire someone who isn't afraid of them and knows proper techniques for hte days when he's importing large numbers of tarantulas, for both HIS and THEIR benefit.. Haplopelma and Chilobrachys are very popular imports with pretty nasty bites...
You fucking suck & I will do everything in my power to take you down.....trust me...I can & will!!!!! If I ever meet you in person at a show I will show you the way to pack a pimp sqeak liitle fuck like you into 4" X 4" container!!!!
I hope Strictly Reptiles loses thousands of dollars in sales from so many people seeing this video and being disgusted by how you handle your Ts.
Don't know which colombian bird eater you dealt with. Mine is nice. My haplos run up the forceps too, and I have a deli cup waiting for them at the top, so they crawl right in and I seal the lid. No harm done. All that guy really had to do was take the point A cup; lid off of course. Then turn it upside down over the point B cup, rim to rim and maybe give it a tap and the spider should just gently drop into the other cup. The company's fault for not training him how to do the job right.
You're right, that's the worst I've ever seen. The 2nd T he transferred is a goner for sure.
u r rough as fk with them lol
strictly reptiles suck they owe me like 70 bucks and ive gotten 7 dead frogs they really suck!
you should be there when the africa shipment of baby balls come in in wooden boxes nailed shut . theres always a baby in one of the bags that died days ago and its fermented and liquified in the cloth bag and giving off a stench that all the other animals have to breath in that wooden box.
youre a complete retard handling tarantulas in that matter a single drop can rupture the abdomen you neandrothol!!
I think it's worth reminding the commenters here that this channel offers an inside look at the exotic wildlife business. It is not in any way an endorsement of the practices you see here.
did this prick just pick up the T with his tongues ? thats bad
LOL. Fucking classic. "I developed this method myself" Oh yah? And I developed the 'dropkick you in the face' method of dealing with dipshits like you.
Thank you for posting this video - now I'll know to NEVER purchase from you! Most your shipments probably die from stress! Seen better treatment at a petstore run by teenagers!
Shut up man, he is retarded. Cobalt blues aren't as fast as Stromatopelma, Heteroscodra, Tapinauchenius. No T should be treated like that. I hope he gets bit and has an allergic reaction.
What a shame
This dude is a comlete douche bag moron. Im assuming the T's on the right are the failed attempts at transfer and the one behind him are the 'successful' one. This guy is a complete fool.
I am with u robc can not explain what I would do to this guy i a dark alley,and probably should not
We should not buy anything with this guy
That's.... just wrong. There are so many easier and better methods that don't result in potential T death.
@TheLizardKingBook Have you been researching any more smuggling or animal cruelty cases for books? I've read The Lizard King now twice. I learned about some incredible animals I haven't even heard of. Like the freshwater turtle that has fins like the sea turtles Mike had.
You, sir should definitely stop interacting with any of them. You're like a death sentence to animals.
you are this sucks i had to do this job at bronx reptile i had to do a columbian bird eater...lol same shit happened up the tongs on the floor and i hate spiders....lol
So, why do they 'cup' them? to sell them?
are the same guys on stirling rd that sells reptiles??
I will post this video ion every forum everyday if I have to....you guys are a disgrace to the reptile bussiness, tarantula haobby and the human race!!! Robc Tarantulaguy1976 I want you to know the one who is going to take you down, and stuff your little ass in a container!
MAybe instead of bashing.. you could offer to teach him some proper handling techniques? some people are scared of tarantulas and obviously this guy is NOT Comfortable handling them..
Then... maybe he shouldn't be working with them...? Just a thought.
er.. better* not matter. >.>
Curious, but if you watched a video of someone kicking a puppy, would you politely attempt to teach them some "proper handling techniques" instead of being outraged? This man has a job working with spiders, which is part of a larger business, he needs to be knowing what he's doing beforehand and the shop should have taught him at the very least. Almost assuredly the cobalt that fell to the floor died later on from severe injuries. No excuse.
worst packing job iv ever seen, i wonder how meny he kills.
@catfish640 What hobby? Strictly Reptiles is a business and the best there is. Stfu. Everyone is in this business to make money
what a dick head! you shouldnt be allowed to keep spiders. hope one of them bites you!
I will never buy anything from Strictly Reptiles after seeing this!
Freaking unbelievable. How many spiders do you kill like that? How many get broken legs? How many die after you sell them from internal injuries? Oh, wait. You don't care. Why am I even asking... How sad. Not only are they dig out of their homes, stuffed unceremoniously into little cups and shipped halfway around the world, if they manage to survive the trip they get banged around, beat up, dropped and grabbed with metal tweezers (NOT the way to handle spiders) by you when they get here.
I am up for it, i am going to make a video obout these idiots on my channel...it gets 325,000 views a week.....good for his bussiness.....I realy do want to meet this guy!!
That's the most fucking irresponsible thing I've ever seen! Hope this dick get's tagged by a Heteroscodra or Stromatopelma. ....Unreal.....
wow...... wow..... some people are just ignorant.
you dumb motherfukers if u only new how many tarantulas they take care of...strictlys the best shop there is...so suck a diccck if u sont like how they run things
Poor tarantulas... these people are retarded
You can tell those people who paked them are just there for a paycheck. Not a care in the world for anything but the mighty buck. I hate those kinds of people with a passion.
Not to mention that this is financially moronic. What kind of a store highers an employee that breaks the things they sell due to stupidity? Not only are these animal's in danger of losing their lives due to carelessness, money is also potentially being lost.
why bother with the gloves, cobalt blue's are an old world species and have no urticating hairs and they could bite right through the gloves and you just know hes not doing it for the tarantulas sake to say nothing of the abuse of those t's
The second one ran off. When a T dies on impact, it doesn't move afterwards. That one took off. They usally die if they have fat abdomens, but burrowers usually stay slim, and too they are not fattened up prior to shipping because their abdomens can bust if there is turbulent desturbance in their traveling container. If you havn't dealt with a cobalt blue, you don't understand how nasty these things are, and how fast. I have a cobalt, and they don't respond slowly to disturbance.
Well, here's another person that would never buy from this store, whether I was looking for an invert or reptile. Do not sell animals if you cannot manage them correctly. That is no matter than the stupid giggly teenage girls at my local pet store that freak out when touching a baby corn snake or rat. Even my mother, who is terrified of my tarantulas when they're not completely secured, helps with unpacking and re-homing them by gently prodding them with a paint brush.
lol nice gloves you fucking tool they will bite through that
