Review for Mystery Man-Tula Box (Box of Mantids & Tarantulas) (Box 1)
5/5
1
Fantastic

Ordered a £25 mystery mantula (Mantis/tarantula) box from Unseen Universe. I messaged before ordering to ask if they could cater for a beginner. I also requested the starter kits on the understanding that I would get fewer creatures. If you order a £25 box just with the creatures you will receive 3 mantids and 2 tarantulas. If you want the starter kits to go with, you will receive 3 creatures. I was given the choice of 2 tarantulas and 1 mantid or 1 tarantula and 2 mantids. Opted for 2 mantids and 1 tarantula. I was not disappointed. My box arrived well packaged and everything clearly labelled. I couldn’t be happier with the creatures I received. The two mantids I received were Phyllocrania paradoxa (Ghost mantis) and Creobroter elongata (Indian flower mantis) and the spiderling is a Psalmopoeus irminia (Venezuelan suntiger). I also received a tub of flightless fruitfly to feed them all on. When I reckoned up the cost of each item on the website it came to over £50. I am absolutely thrilled to bits with my purchase. Highly recommended 🥰

Amazing little character!

My word what a cutie-pie! This little L3 giant Asian arrived robust and healthy in careful packaging. It is the friendliest mantis I have ever known and loves coming out and hopping from hand to hand exploring everything. Just an absolute darling.

Review for Idolomantis diabolica (Giant Devil's Flower Mantis) (3rd instar) - 1x Nymph
5/5
my idolo!

My idolo arrived safely and extremely well packaged, there’s definitely a reason why Mitch has such a great reputation in the mantis selling industry.

They’re a gorgeous species, but please do your research before buying one, as they have a lot of requirements. Please don’t buy one as your first mantis.

Perfect selection

This was a wonderful way to be introduced to the world of mantis keeping, and I was sent more easy-care species than I was expecting. I would buy again without hesitation but husband has made me promise I will keep a maximum of 6 mantises at any given time. All these babies are thriving, all have shed once and are generally little darlings with their own characters.

Review for Acrylic vivarium

Excellent quality

Im working out of town at the moment so decided to be sensible and buy a set up first to see if I can maintain the correct conditions before getting my first mantis. I was not expecting the vivarium to arrive already built so this was a big bonus, it was double wrapped in bubble wrap and then shipping peanuts surrounding it along with the couple of vines I ordered. Having it pre built just meant it was so much easier to just start setting it up. Currently set up with a heat mat on the back and keeping an eye on the temp between the thermometer that it came with and a thermostat connected to the heat mat to make sure the temp stays in the right range. As soon as Im happy this is keeping the environment as it should be I will be back to purchase my first mantis, the way its going I can see me buying more enclosures and Ive not really started yet!

Great service, I bought a starter kit as a gift from a different site before I found this website, Ive found The Praying Mantis has a much quicker turn around on getting items out to you another reason why Ill be returning.

Keep up the great work!

Amazing shop

I started buying mantids from my local store, the selection was good, but only proved useful if something took my eye, so I started ordering online (not from here) as did my friend, who\\\\\\\’s mantis passed away fairly quickly, mine ordered from the internet were noticeably sluggish compared to local purchases, we put it down to being posted. Until I started using this site, the mantids and spider I\\\\\\\’ve recieved so far have been fiesty, great eaters, and very punctual molters. 100% recommend this site, but I cant place any more orders because my partner has threatened to move out if I buy any more!

Amazing!

After ordering my very first mantis from here about five months ago, I’ve been really interested in keeping more. I decided this would be a fun way to help me pick! I was expecting one mantis due to the fact I also stated I needed a setup as well. Imagine my shock when two beautiful mantids along with setups AND flies arrived! I’m absolutely thrilled with this purchase and I’m so excited for when my babies need an setup upgrade!

Review for Ghost mantis & Congo green mantis

Ordered on Sunday evening and received by Tuesday morning, very quick delivery. Critters were very nicely packed and I even received an extra helping of flies and a Madagascar marbled mantis as a gift!

Unfortunately my Congo green had decided to moult during transit and didn\’t quite make it, which is a shame but no ones fault.

Great service and will definitely be ordering from Mitch again (now just have to convince the wife).

Review for wide armed mantis

possible the most curious, excitable mantis i\'ve had. raised well and happy until they reached my door.

A few months ago (roughly around may) I bought a 6th instar wide armed mantis from this shop. the packing was incredible and the mantis was peeping its little head through the mesh as soon as I opened it. since then,my new friend (pebbles) has been my very best friend! 😀 she would peep through the enclosure and watch me whenever she was hungry, then waggle her abdomen in anticipation when i opened the door to feed her.

they have large, adorable eyes and the cutest pastel colour. I would strongly reccomend this mantis if youre looking for a hungry, avid hunter with a zesty personality. sadly they past away recently, though I will 100 percent be buying another from this shop.

Review for Ghost Mantis + Starter Kit
5/5
Wonderful service - Great starter setup

I ordered a ghost mantis and the starter kit with flies. Fantastic service arrived 2 days after placing my order. The starter enclosure came with everything I needed to get setup, really easy and simple to put together. The substrate holds moisture well without being too damp and there are some sticks and fake plants for the mantis to hold onto and climb on.

The ghost mantis arrived and they look super healthy has been great seeing them explore their new enclosure. The kit I ordered also came with a fruit fly culture. It was easy to sprinkle a few into the enclosure and the culture looked full of healthy flies. The ghost mantis has had no trouble hunting them and was great fun watching them ambush and strike them down.
