Product Review (submitted on June 1, 2009):
You don't get the insects or a coupon for them. Instead you have to pay more for the mantis or for a praying mantis plus the food for them. The literature inside says the hatched insects need to be separated into small jars to keep the mantis from eating each other. Based on reviews on similar products it sounds like a good number of people get no hatchings from their eggs. In short, you get a container. You could call this a praying mantis habitat or a butterfly habitat or a small laundry basket or just what it is -- a little box.
