The perfect beginner species of praying mantis. Robust, grow like weeds, smash their prey, bold and easy to care for. Quite a leggy mantis that will outgrow their enclosures quickly. You'll be surprised how quickly they grow.
These guys can tolerate a range of temperatures and quite forgiving, They aren’t picky feeders at all and easy to handle. Highly cannibalistic and do not play well with others.
Giant Asians need a large enclosure of around 12"x12"x12" minimum for females. Males can be housed in slightly smaller.
Most of my nymphs are a light beige or a pale lime green colour, most will turn out leafy green as adults.
