    Easy and quick

    Very good. My bug arrived perky and healthy and lived a good long life. I have done somewhere between half a dozen to it doesn’t transactions with US mantis. All have gone very well. Always fast feedback when I have questions. The one time I had an issue, there was a quick resolution.

    I love the ones I bought.

    I bought the best shipping and I emailed usmantis about receiving 2 of the opposite sex. They helped me receive what I wanted and my mantises came out of shipping looking great although I think the male is about to shed his skin. Thank you

    I received my mantis quickly, but it was very clear that it had a broken raptor arm! I tried emailing and calling this website, nothing. It had its first shed and had a very difficult time. My mantis finally bit off its arm. I hope that it will be able to hunt safely with one arm! I love my mantis, but very disappointed I was not offered another replacement, explanation or any acknowledgment of my situation. I also ordered a Giant Chinese Mantis and was sent something completely different.
