Remember to turn on Holiday creator features for the custom item to work!
please add tarantulas
Does this work with 1.19 and do you have any plans to update it with more mobs?
Why does the firefly get so big
can you fix that
also add ciadas centipedes and cockroaches
Add Grasshoppers Tarantulas Black Widow Cricket and Moth please
this is my second favorite because it adds detail to the game
Can you give more hornets?
Can you make it free pls i can't download it in my realme its says zip
Love the addon but i guess i'm a sucker for any addon that adds arachnids into the game, on a side note would it be possible to make the scorpions tamable but difficult to tame.
This Is Pretty good being the only pack in the whole of MCPEDL with a Mantis which I love.

la aparicion de algunos insectos no esta bien administrada, y el mantis tiene error en su textura
REALLY like the butterflies! Wishing for dragonflies and ladybugs, if possible. Thank you! Also, the mantis shows up a blank square in my inventory and does not spawn. I'm using 1.17.34 Thanks!
Have you turned on the holiday creature features?
Add centipedes too
