Face it, life is much more fun when you’ve got pets around. Yes, having a pet is a huge responsibility, but ask any pet owner and they will give you a million reasons why it’s worth having one at home. Life is hard as it is, so having a furry (or hairless, or with a shell, or whatever) companion to say hi whenever you return home or to be with when you go out for walks is certainly a treat. The best part about it is that there is such a huge variety of pets that you can have—everything from cats, dogs, rats and gerbils to turtles, lizards, ants, snakes or even tarantulas.

Or, you can do what Samantha Steatoda did and get yourself a praying mantis. Yes, that one very cool-looking insect that can snap any other insect in half like a twig.

Meet Mavis, the adorable praying mantis that spends much of her day trying out miniature furniture and chomping on bugs. Mavis is specifically the giant Asian mantis, which are overall larger than other members of its species. These are also the most popular choice of pets among mantises.

Samantha Steatoda, Mavis’ owner, loves her so much that she buys her miniature furniture.

Mavis has become a bit of a furniture reviewer on her Instagram. She has already tried out fancy sofas and sofa chairs, tables, chairs, fireplaces, fridges, benches, lounging chairs—you name it, she probably tried it.

Her most recent purchase is a bathtub, equipped with a shower curtain for her to climb on.

According to Steatoda’s Facebook post, Mavis even cleaned herself up in the bathtub, but no water was used to avoid drowning.

Traditionally, bugs are not the first choice for pet owners, but Mavis makes a pretty good case for all praying mantises by simply being super adorable around miniature furniture.
