" Hey Rich, Receieved the girl and she came in fine. I must way Wow, she has great pattern and color, not to mention the reduction we spoke of. Very satifisfied with her. I was never into axanthic, but after this girl you've made me a believer! Will see in the future as i go for true ghost myself and hopefully a true ghost clown sometime down the line. Thx again. I spoken and dealt with many breeders in this industry, even the big guys, and I must say you top off as being one of the more enjoyful ones to talk to. Looking forward to picking up more from you in the future!! Its been a Pleasure!!"

"Thank you for your fantastic response! I have emailed a few others who were very short with the one word responses and I ended up moving on since it seemed they weren't interested in my business. You are a breath of fresh air."
-Seth H. (August 2014)
"I got my 100% het albino pied pair a few days ago after several days of you patiently answering emails and questions, and they were amazing. Everything was packed up very professionally and the snakes were in great condition right out of the box. After putting them in their new homes, I put them together and within an hour they were already locked up! Now looking forward to the possibility of pieds, albinos, and hopefully even the elusive albino pied! Thanks again for the great snakes and the professional service! I would highly recommend you to anyone seeking quality ball pythons at great prices."
-Chad C. (July 2014)
"oh yes I did indeed get them today and they are beautiful and very active in the new enclosures I just bought for them and my others. They are gorgeous. I am thrilled with them and just so you know I went WOW when I opened all three bags. They looked very healthy and well cared for. You should be very proud of yourself for producing such beautiful animals and caring for them so well. Thank you for the care cards also."
-Terrie T. (July 2014)
"Rich, Just got the Dbl het hypo pied. He is doing great. Very professional. Will be doing business with you again soon. I am expanding my Pied projects. Thanks"
-Paul Summers (June 2014)

"Just found your facebook page! I bought a gorgeous male pied from you about a year and a half ago! He's been the best pet ever and all of the little kids in the neighborhood knock on my door (everyday) asking if they can hold Jones."
"This is Lauren Clark, just got an albino hognose from Rich Macias. Great guy to deal with, nice easy transaction. Healthy snake that looks even better than her photo! Will buy from Rich again!"
"I second it. Rich is a great guy, with some killer animals. Do not hesitate to deal with Rich."
"Rich is one of the good guys and has been around the industry for many years!"
"I got a boy pied from him a couple years back. It was a flawless transaction. I'll do business with him again."
"I had did business with Rich Macias last week and the transaction was nothing but pleasure. Animal was properly package and 100% healthy - along with being alert animal was obviously well taken care of. Thank you again, Rich I highly recommend doing business with him in the future."
"I've said many times, Rich is the best. I mean the very best. I buy from him often and without hesitation. Plus, he's one of the nicest people I've ever met in my life. Truely impressive all the way around."
"Bought from him also. Very happy."
"Rich is definately a "Class Act" and his reputation has stood the test of time!! Never hesitate to deal with Bloodines!!"
"Rich is very likely the most honest, decent good guy you will ever have the pleasure of dealing with. I have known him for many years, have dealt with him many times, and have never regreted a thing. He is just a superior human being. And a damned good herpetologist to boot. I would trust the man with all that I have."
"Rich is a Great Guy! I also know Rich personally. He is a member of our Herp Society and has given presentations for us. He knows his stuff and do not hesitate to do business with him. He is as good as it gets."
-Kimberly Anderson, President
Southern Nevada Herpetological Society
"I've never done business with Rich Macias, but have done several shows with him where we were both vendors. The animals on his table appeared flawless, and he answered my questions with knowledge and professionalism."
"I have not dealt with him personally, but a friend of mine has. His name is Cristian Kaleta from Predator Reptiles. Cristian had comments similar to Ken's in regard to Rich. Basically, he said that you cant say enough good things about Rich, and that he is the best of the best."
"Rich is a stand up guy and very friendly to boot. I would'nt hesitate to do business with him.
He should get back into geckos again though..."
"I just purchased a beautiful gold striped female ball python from Rich and I am absolutely thrilled. The poor girl was born with a kink in her tail that will most likely make her non-breedable. Rich was selling her as a pet ONLY for fear that she could become egg-bound if bred, and had her priced very reasonably. He and I e-mailed back and forth, he was great with communication, and he gave me a call when he got her flight details from Delta. We both have 2-month-old babies that require a lot of attention and work, but he still managed to get my snake shipped within less than 24 hours after I sent payment. He asked that I give him a call when I pick her up so that he knows she's OK and doesn't worry...now THAT is awesome...he cares greatly for his animals. She was very well packed; comfortable in a secured bag that was surrounded by newspaper in a styrofoam lined box with air holes. He included with her a copy of her entire feeding, shedding, and weight history...complete since the day she was hatched by him (6-28-03). Included in the info were her parents' ID numbers and a photo of her as a hatchling. Outstanding!"
-Pink Lady Exotics
"Purchased a 2010 het Albino female from Rich and received her today. Prior to completing the sale, his communication was outstanding; answered any and every question I asked of him and kept me updated on the shipping status, etc.
Upon receiving her she was in great condition; no stuck shed, no apparent issues of any kind. Packaging was great and while she had room to be comfortable, there wasn't enough for her to possibly hurt herself had she been dropped or otherwise handled roughly in transit. The feeding/shed card was filled out and up-to-date and the corresponding paperwork was in order and obviously not a last minute rush job. I would highly recommend Rich and the clincher for me and what will bring me back to purchase from him again was the phone call I received upon picking her up.
I had just arrived home with her and gotten her settled into the quarantine rack. Rich had followed the tracking updates from FedEx and had called approximately an hour after I had arrived home with her. That is the first and only time thus far that a breeder/seller has called to check, personally, on the welfare of an animal they sold. That speaks for itself as to the type of seller Mr. Macias is. Thank you very much, Rich and take care if you should read this!"
