    This is my first time to have these spiny leaf insects, I ordered male and female. They arrived in 3 days using express post, kind of worried but they survived. I thought they are all females because the orange one looks like female, sent email to bugfrenzy and got the answer. No it’s male actually. Communication was good! Will buy from bugfrenzy again.
    It’s been 6 days, the insects are happy and healthy in their new home.
