Terms & Conditions:
Minimum order $20 not including shipping. USA (lower 48) shipping only. Paypal only. I ship via USPS Priority Mail, shipping normally costs $13 however if your order is especially large it may be $18. Heat packs, if needed, will cost an extra $4 per pack. I do not ship via USPS express at this moment, so please don't ask.

I ship out on Mondays/Tuesdays for all payments and mailing addresses received by Sunday evening. (So if you place an order on Monday, it will not be shipped out until Tuesday of the FOLLOWING week).

Due to negative experiences with USPS wildly mishandling packages that are held for pickup, we suggest against asking for packages to be marked HOLD FOR PICKUP, unless you know your post offices handles these types of packages with little issue. Otherwise, if your temps are too extreme, or you won't be able to accept delivery at home, or if you have some other reason for not being able to have the invertebrates shipped to your door, then I strongly advise you don't order.

I am not responsible for any deaths due to mishandling, acts of God and extreme temperatures. If your local temperatures are in the 90's or above or the 40's and below, (and you do not include a heat pack in your order for the latter), order at your own risk! Isopods in particular are VERY sensitive to high temperatures, ordering them when your local temps are in the 80s or above may be a death sentence. Cockroaches and some beetles are more flexible when it comes to hot conditions, so if the temperatures in your area are in the 90s or above, we can discus a LAG agreement for certain, heat hardy species.

If, for some reason the invertebrates arrive dead, and they were shipped during weather I suggested should be fine, please send a photo of the dead invertebrates in question within 24 HOURS of arrival, and we can work on a replacement shipment or partial refund. If no proof in the form of a photo or a video is supplied, I will not take any responsibility for DOAs.

Contact me to order, or if you have any questions at: invertebratedude@gmail.com.

  1. Do you plan to breed/raise praying mantid at some point?

  2. Not really, they seem too high maintenance for my taste, and overall most species don't really interest me enough to want to keep some.

    There are a few exceptions though, I would consider keeping some of the Metallyticus species, as well as Amorphoscelis perhaps. :) Of course those are both extremely rare so I'm unlikely to ever get any lol!

    1. Not even interested in Phyllocrania paradoxa? Let me tell you, those are amazing-looking in real life!LOL

      Basically the ones that look like roaches then. ;)

    2. Nah, not interested in keeping that species, but I will agree that they are quite amazing little creatures! :)

      Yeah, basically lol! Love the flattened appearance of the whole bark mantid group, too bad most of the really cool ones are both rare and difficult to keep/breed.

    3. I kept a few a while back(my first arthropod pets in fact) and I still don't think I've kept a more intriguing invert since then, the little things look and act almost exactly like dead leaves!

      Yea, pretty unfortunate. I tried keeping G.grisea last year and failed miserably at even keeping them alive. :( A lot of people report that mantids are easy, but it's just the opposite in my experience, maybe I have a mantis curse on me! LOL

      Oh and just realized that I commented previously as my dad, sorry about that. lol

    4. Yeah, they are very neat looking, but just not my cup of tea as far as keeping goes...

      Yeah, G.grisea is the perfect example of how difficult bark mantids are to culture, they require very specific perching materials, humidity levels and even prey items, which makes them a pain to rear. Even under the best conditions, I think they have a poor survival rate anyway, at least that's what I've gathered.

      Was wondering if he was related to you or not lol, was quite confused for a little bit lol! :p

    5. Fair enough.

      Yea, although I think mine may have died from stress caused by my S.curviseta...

      Sorry to cause you confusion.lol I've gotten freaked out before when mysterious people have commented on my blog, but luckily they've just ended up being my aunt and grandma. lol

    6. Dang, sorry to heat that, were they very numerous in their enclosures?

      Lol yeah I think I read the comments in one of those posts, you were a little freaked out that some "random" person had replied to your post, just turned out to be a relative though. :)

      Delete
    7. Yes, very.....I was pretty naïve back then, didn't know that springtails could actually stress out another invert to death.

      Yea, I definitely said something like that. LOL

      BTW sorry for butchering your sale page. lol You're welcome to delete my comments. :)

    8. Me neither, until I lost my Chorisoneura texensis! Dang critters are supposed beneficial, not harmful!!

      Oh no problem, I don't mind it at all. :)

  3. Good morning,
    I am looking for Tenebrio Obscurus if you have any for sale. Any amount will do for a culture. Thank you.

    1. Hi there,

      I don't have any T.obscurus for sale at the moment, once I do though, I will definitely put them up on the list though! :)

      Thanks for inquiring!

  4. Hello. Do you ever have motyxia's available

    1. Unfortunately I was unable to successfully breed Motyxia, like pretty much everyone else who's kept them so far. All of mine died a long time ago, Bugsincyberspace.com might have some available this year though, who knows.
