Please be prepared when your mantis arrives with Hydei Fruit Flies. We will send your mantis with a few flies to eat along the way but no doubt, it will be hungry when it arrives.
The Giant Asian Mantis - Hierodula membranacea is a fierce kind of praying mantis.
This species will actively hunt its prey once it spots it.
They are not the general sit-and-wait kind of predators. They are true hunters.
A large prey insect does not scare a Giant Asian Mantis, it will attack anything half its own body size or smaller.
It won’t attack you and it can be handled easily by young and old.
The Giant Asian Mantis will not stress if its enclosure is close to people or pets.
They have a strong constitution.
The first photo is the actual size of the nymph that you will receive.
The second and third photo are for display purposes only. Those photos are what the adults look like.
