Small but christ are they mighty!! I've had these guess take down blue bottles at 3cm in length. Incredible strength in such little bodies! Super tough little fellas and a nice little edition to anyone's collection.
Adults can be housed in 32oz with ample space. I grow on my nymphs in party cups with mesh lids.
A nice little pale coloured mantis with some turning green at different stages in their life. The females are a lovely ivory white. As nymphs they remind me of the glass mantis, nearly see through and thin bodied.
These guys are prolific layers. One of my females has produced 20 ootheca and she's still going!
