    My beautiful spiny leaf insects came alive and they looked great. They both were very cute, ugly and fascinating and just like the one in the picture just smaller. I have named them wobble and Bob

    Received my spiny leaf insect who has been dubbed "Lady Mortisha Spikington" & she is just the cutest little thing ever. She arrived healthy & full of life. To hard to get eucalyptus branches here (to high up) so got some wattle branches instead & she absolutely loves them, will definitely get eucalyptus ASAP tho. Early days, but I would highly recommend you get one or more.

  8. very happy 6 year old

    We have purchased 2 lots of Stickies from Mini Beasts - they are well cared for before they arrive and were delivered safe and well to us.

    The after support has been fantastic!
