A large species,from Australia, Common name: Giant rain forest mantis. fat and long! They are about 3" and quite wide little guys, I don't see them any bigger than the Giant Asians, although some say they are bigger. Each to his own opinion I guess. Enjoy, as always the mantis is gentle. They need the same care as most mantis, water and food & a nice big home! This mantis is frozen upon death and for pinning only.
