    Once again Minibeast has excelled in customer service, speediness of delivery, and gorgeous, healthy insects. They always pop in an extra insect and I love that!

    We first thought this stick insect was fake. So perfect to look at. Smells like peppermint, very particular in it's food source, and a fabulous addition to my son's collection.
