    Couldn't recommend more

    "Fiona" was a birthday present for my son. Australia Post (even express posted) took a few days longer than expected especially as we're remote WA but she was very well packed and, other than being a bit thirsty, she was in good health. Minibeasts were very quick to respond to emails and assist with the WA entry permit requirements, you can tell they care about the bugs they send out. Felt prepared to keep her when she came, the care sheet provided was thorough and very helpful. My son's interest has now become a family obsession, not sure what we should get next!
