    We ordered two sticks for my 5 year old son after his spiny leaf passed away. They arrived quickly and we even got a third stick included in the pack. The sticks were happy on arrival and they have settled in well.

    My daughter is very happy with her new stickie pets. They arrived in the post kindly packaged with leaves and a moist paper towel. The stick insects are now in their enclosure chomping away on leaves from the local park. Thanks for a great first experience with stick insects!

    I had a great experience purchasing Crowned stick insects through Mini Beast Wildlife. Unfortunately one of my two stick insects didn’t survive the journey. The team at Mini Beast Wildlife promptly replied to my email and sent a replacement. My two stick insects are now thriving at home. A friend also ordered stick insects for their children. They also experienced good service and healthy insects. I have now ordered another stick insect for my work place.

    Not so much fun - very good at hiding and staying very still. not as interesting as the Spiny Leaf Insect
