A beautiful mantis reaching about 3" and very much the king of the forest! The males are smaller and more slender than the females, and their wings resemble a mans tie! They come in a variety of browns, from light to dark. When on the forest floor they resemble a leaf so much, one would have to look twice to decide if a leaf or mantis! This species is kept only as a pet and cannot be released in the U.S. They eat house flies, blue bottle flies, super worms & crickets. A good size container for this species is the X large hex or Large Round. Don't forget the succulents, mantis like to drink the water you mist off of them!
