About us

Who we are…

My name’s Liam, and I’m the owner of Mantis Den.

I’ve always had a fascination with insects since a young age and once I reached 14 years old, I was finally able to start collecting tarantulas, scorpions, mantids and reptiles. After years of building my knowledge, it was mantids that stole most of my interest; everything about them fascinates me, from the rearing of the small nymphs to the feeding and breeding of the adult mantids. 

My aim is to share in the passion I have for these alien-like creatures…

What we do…

We now breed a number of different species, selling the nymphs to enthusiastic keepers and sharing our knowledge on their care.

We will occasionally obtain new species, from sources outside of the UK, so that we can bring you that little something different, as well as add them to our ever-expanding breeding program.

We can also supply wholesale orders if you’re looking to stock mantids or other invertebrates in store. Send us an email on our contact page for more information.

How we work…

Orders can be placed on our website, and deliveries are made as soon as possible. We take extra care when sending our animals through postal service – for more information on delivery methods, click here.

We also provide on-going support and care advice – don’t be afraid to ask us questions. We are in the process of creating care sheets for all of the species we sell, so you never feel left in the dark when making a purchase.
