    Ordered a ghost mantis along with giant Asian mantis, very pleased, both arrived well-packaged and the heat pack was still warm. Ghost mantis has settled in very well into his new enclosure. Will be buying from you again.

    Mantis arrived in perfect condition. The box was well packed, heated and I felt relieved to know my little mantis was handled so well. I can’t wait to get to know this little pet.

    Mantis arrived in perfect condition, very well packaged. Its been about a week now and the ghost mantis is doing really well, I’m surprised at how quickly it has grown already. I have another enclosure set up so will definitely be buying again soon
