Miomantis Paykulli is a small species of mantis suitable for beginners. These critters are comparable to little faeries and come in a range of pastel shades from light blue to pale yellow. Hardy and ferocious, Miomantis are a great choice for a beginner species when sold as older, larger nymphs.

Egyptian Pygmy Mantis are tiny, ferocious mantis, comparable to adorably bad-tempered chihuahuas. It may not seem like it, but this tiny mantis is entirely packed with both ferocity and personality, making this mantis an extremely understated & overlooked choice. Coming in various shades of green, baby blue & buttercup yellow, Egyptian pygmy mantis look almost transparent, like vibrant stained glass. Novels & media often feature similarities between faeries and insects, and this comparison is especially accurate for Miomantis Paykulli. While Egyptian Pygmy mantis are easy to care for and beginner-friendly, the extremely tiny baby nymphs are not. Our Miomantis nymphs will always be sold at a larger, more manageable stage of life to prevent any issues of this nature.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
