Hi Rick.
Very pleased with my recent order locusts,Banana Roaches and Calci worms.The calci worms especially nice large size and super fresh.So good these were your Calci far better that from other suppliers I have ordered more. My adult male Yemen loves them,just bought a 12 week old male Ambilobe  Panther Chameleon. So bought some small Calci worms for him to try now if he turns out like his sire he will be a fantastic colour keep up the good work.
Regards Peter.

I wasn't sure whether this was how to send a testimonial or whether I've missed a link somewhere.

I would just like to say a huge thank you for my order which arrived promptly, well packaged and all alive and kicking.  I will definitely use you again.

I run a small reptile group and will be advertising your site in the group and also on our facebook group if that is alright with you.

Received from Julie K on the 06/04/13

WOW !! placed my order yesterday just before 12 lunch time ( Friday )and it has just arrived at 12.45 ( Saturday ) . I can't express how happy I am with the quality of your live food and the service, I have been using you since just after Christmas 2012 after haveing problems with my previouse supplier . Not only that but my female Beardy is now thriving on your live food and has shed and grown after being fussy and not eating much before Christmas I have no doubt that it is because of the freshness of your live food . Thank you from a very satisfied customer , Julie .

Received from William A. On the 22/03/13
Hello. I want to say thanks very much for the pallid and dubia roaches you supplied to me. I ordered them on the evening of 20th March 2013 and they were delivered on 22nd March 2013 despite the snowy weather affecting much of the country. They were packaged securely and even had instructions on how to 'bring them around' if they looked like they'd been affected by the cold weather. You also responded within minutes to a message I sent before placing my order which I think is excellent service. As I donate to the North East Reptile Rescue I intend to order more items from you for delivery to them in the near future. Thank you very much.

Received from Gaz N. On the 08/03/13
Hi and thanks very much for such a fantastic service. We've been having problems with our usual live-food supplier lately and I think we may have found a replacement!
Best regards

Hi Rick
Just received my order for 100 Phoenix Worms, and I am well impressed with
the condition, all wriggling. Your service is excellent and I will be
using your company regularly to feed my two bearded dragons.
Many thanks,

Received x 2 emails from Tony C. On the 06/03/13

No problem at all mate.

I've only had my 5month old  Blood Red X Sandfire Beardie (Diesel) for a month now so I'm still learning his eating preferences.

I've tried alot of different suppliers in that time (He eats like a horse) and find your site to be easily navigated and very competitive.

ALL the livefood was alive when delivered and in FANTASTIC condition, add to that the excellent, personal customer service.

To say I'm impressed is nothing short of an understatement.

As long as you are trading, I'll be a customer...It'll take him a while to get through my order though lol


Hi Rick


Just so you're aware, I've received my order and I'm very happy with EVERYTHING.

Your Roaches and Fruit Beetle Grubs are second to none I've had from many other suppliers in the past.

I thank you and my Beardie would if he could.

Kind regards


Received from Elaine W. 05/02/13
Thank you so much for my purchase, it's the first time I've bought live food online and I'm very pleased with the condition of the bugs I received and will  be placing a regular weekly order to keep 2 beardies happy. A friend of mine will also be getting the bugs for her crestie from you through me as she was also happy with the condition they arrived in. Thank you once again. Kind regards Elaine

Hiya thank you so much for fullfilling my order i recieved my locusts and butterworms promptly and was very impressed only one died out of 50 also they were all the specified size which is good because lots of places state medium and there is about four medium and the rest are tiny. But every locust you sent me were the size expected livley and healthy looking. we have six geckos and three beardies so will be placing more orders as soon as the food we have is nearly exhausted Many thanks and i look forward to being a regular customer

Just wanted to say thanx for the great order, much much better value for money than the other sites I had tried. Very pleased and i will be using you again.


Received 28/03/12

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your fast, efficient, and ethical service.

I've ordered a variety of live-foods from a couple of a different sites, as well as a variety of shops, for our adolescent Chinese water dragon, and have always been a bit disappointed at the standard of both the bugs and packaging. Usually, several are already dead when they arrive, and more die within a couple of days.

However, I placed an order with you on Sunday and they arrived on Tuesday (FAB turn-around and delivery!)and every single bug, of each variety, arrived in pristine condition. The air bags are such a simple yet effective idea as they prevent the bugs being shaken around and stressed too much. Although I buy them as a food source, I still like to provide the insects with a high level of care, and their condition on arrival suggests that you feel the same. I wish more suppliers were the same.

Although you're slightly more expensive than my previous suppliers, I am more than happy to continue ordering from you as you certainly seem to supply far superior bugs.

Many thanks, Sooz.

Hi Rick
1500 crickets and not one dead - thank you for such good quality of stock and service.
Plus the free box of food deal was lovely - you got one of the rescues eating for himself with a locus.
Huge thanks from the lizards and me  Carrie. T.


Hi Rick
Thought I'd drop you an email to say my bugs have arrived and what a healthy lot! No problems ordering them from you in the low temps unlike some companies.  Really pleased so thanks you.

Rick a massive thank you for the order today.
The food all arrived in fantastic condition, I am so impressed with your service and quality of the stock you provide.  Not one insect was dead on arrival and in the past even when I have bought stock from local sources on the arrival date I have had at least 1 or 2 dead or dying ones.  They are all comfortable with food and bug water gel and will remain being cared for until they feed my babies.  Massive thank you and again 100% on quality and service - thank you. Carrie

Just like to Thank Rick again for supplying me with all my reptile needs 
i can't recommend him enough.

just finished building my incubator from him ... just superb which is currently keeping my Dubia Roaches (also from Rick) nice and warm until next week when i get the heated cable to finish off my huge Rack ( pics of that will be up soon)

Keep up the great service Rick   Martin B Captive Bred Forum.

Just got my order of bean weevils and roaches from him and I couldn't be happier with them. They arrived very quickly and there's hundreds of weevils running around in the tubs.  I will certainly be ordering more from him in the future. Geordie Girl Captive Bred forum.

carnt praise this bloke enough , not just for his equipment or live food but for the time he has for u aswell , always there to help etc ,,

and just to show how fresh his livefood is rick posted some locusts to me on monday , neither of us knowing there were mail strikes in my area , we found out on wednesday there was and thought oh dear there all gonna be dead ,, but guess what , they wernt they all arrived today (friday ) and not 1 single 1 was dead , now thats what i call fresh .
cheers rick
again received locusts from him again today all top quality , thanks.  Adam Captive Bred Forum.

My lobsters are thriving (there are babies!), and my crickets are apparently very tasty. huge thank you for everything!

It was one heck of a distance for you to travel, but still you took the time to talk me through how the stats work, how to keep the bugs happy and other random stuff. And you built the viv for me! The baby dragon has settled in well, and is gorgeous - but then they're well loved, so they will be.

Oh, and another thanks for helping me move the newt's tank.

No really, this guy is superb - his animals, his livefood, his knowledge...

I'm one very satisfied customer. 

Amber Captive Bred Forum.

I agree there completly, He'd given me lots of advice about Chameleons... Top geezer!!!

Another happy customer here!! Thanks petal  JO CB Forum.

Have been to Rick(eezee)'s today to pick up my first ever chameleon! I can;t stop smiling....He is a beautiful young carpet cham (Furcifer lateralis) named Albert. I will post pics tomorrow when he's settled in but he's already been eating and drinking.

Just wanted to say thanks to Rick for making my year! It was an absolute delight to see all your beautiful chameleons, and you've been more than helpful. Everyone should come to you if they need great quality, beautifully looked after chams (as I know many agree). Also I had the pleasure of meeting and holding the legendary Franz F. (Albert says hi Franz, and he asks that you dont eat him) 

Had a great day, pics to follow Jo CB Forum.

Cant praise this guy enough, he is a star, was great meeting you Rick  and thank you so much for my stunning chams   , want anything reptile related you need go no further, this is your man.
Karen CB Forum

I just wanted to say this guy is amazing, I spoke to him this morning and then went to see him, and came home with Brian the ornate horned frog..
