    Hi, I received my order of 4 Budwing Mantis nymphs today and couldn't be happier. They arrived very lively and one of them molted on the way! I also wanted to say thanks for the fly pupae that was included in the box with them. I just wanted to let you know that they made it, they're all set up in their new homes and looking good. I'll definitely be ordering from you again!Thanks for a great experience,Chris

    little devils

    Hi Rebecca, Just wanted to let you know that I received the little monsters. They are just too cute! I really didn't expect them to be so tiny but they are adorable. I can't tell you how excited my daughter will be when she sees them. Thank you so much! My buying experience from you has been phenomenal! Regards, Janet

    Above service!

    I just wanted to say thank-you very much. The mantids arrived alive and well. The packing was awesome. And I was surprised that you sent me an extra mantis also that they were labeled male and female. One question, there was a small cup filled with small brown pupae, bigger than fruit flies. Are these blue bottle flies? Again, thank-you very much, you went above and beyond what I expected. Let me know when those orchids hatch

    Mantis fever

    Hey you, I just want to say first off the box o mantis was awesome, I have never received such well packed and great looking mantis. Two of the mantis had molted on the trip with no problems what so ever. And all came out ready to eat and pose for pics of course. I have a female ghost mantis that chose a weird spot and mismolted,(im hand feeding but not sure she going to pull through) I’m looking for maybe l-4 ghost? Was wondering what age your 4@15 were? But anyway I do have a shopping list here for you….. lol I got the fever I’m afraid.. lol
  13. sure, send an order in!

    Late notice

    Sorry about the late notice, we've had some internet issues here. Just wanted to let you know that the mantids arrived, safe and sound, and are eating and doing very well here. One of the little chaps molted earlier! <3 He looks so much bigger now, it's sort of amazing, really surprised me. Really enjoying them, I will definitely refer to you in the future should I get more of these guys. Thank you so much,Jorie

    big cage?

    Rebecca, Thanks for the extra mystery mantis - It looks like a minerature scorpion or something. I have a question: I have a rather large all screen cage (for a butterfly or something) It looks like it would contain the mantis... Is there such a thing as too large of a cage? probably 2foot by 2foot but seems secure enough that the mantis should not escape. Thanks, Chad

    3-9-11I got them! They were in good shape. The "Mystery Mantis" is fascinating - my students thought "he" was cute. I teach high school science. 2 of them molted this evening! Thanks! I recommended your site to several people today. Thanks again!Trish

    bud babies

    Rebecca, Thanks for the quick response. Thats awesome. My curator ordered them and I really couldn"t tell what was what. They are in great shape. The mystery one has quite a "personality". One question....can they be housed together any longer? Thanks. Carol

    orders received 3/8/10

    Well, Hello.. I just received two beautiful Giant Shield Mantis (thank you) – I actually thought they would be a little bit larger in size? I jumped the gun for food –we had a container of meal worms which are twice the size of my new pets. Now – I would like them to grow nice and big….in looking at your site – can you tell me exactly what I should be ordering for food for these guys? Your site has so many choices – not sure where to begin. What I would like to do is order some live fruit flies and be able to grow fruit flies. Any help with this is most appreciated and thank you for your service. I have shared your site with all my friends….. Jay Hi Rebecca, The lil nymphs just arrived, and all are fine! They are lively and hopping all over. Going to transfer them to their homes in a bit as soon as I finish setting up the twigs. And wow, the mystery mantis?? Wasn't expecting that, though I did read about it on the site. Thank you very much. So, let me guess?? Is the mystery guest a Chinese mantid? Or, is it a mystery because we don't know what it is til it matures? LOL. Very exciting, they are too cool.
