As beautiful as it is informative. Has me thinking about keeping all kinds of invertebrates, not just the praying mantises I bought it for. The 'Species with similar care requirements' sections are really helpful.

My mom got this book for me along with 2 spiny leaf insects and a cool enclosure for them I love everything so much and the book IS LITERALLY THE BEST BOOK for Australian invertebrate keepers
if you what a invertebrate as a pet or catch one from the wild this book is for you!!!!!!!
The bugs alive book has helped me to understand invertabrates in a deeper depth and is great as it tells you the best insects that are compatible with each other and why, it holds lots of I formation that you just wouldn't find on the web. I definitely recomend this to anyone at all who has an invertabrate or who would like a better understanding of them.
