All our twig pens have black ink. We have a variety of animal designs available - this listing is for the pen with the tortoise. All our insect pens are unique - no two insects or animals are alike. And what is more, each insect is attached to a real twig! Each pen comes with a little gift tag that can be addressed to the recipient (not shown in the attached image), making it a wonderful novelty and useful present, without having to purchase an additional card. Please note, this product contains no real animals or animal parts!The pen is packaged in a self-seal poly-cellophane packet.
