These fellas should have a warning sticker...as adults they are one mean insect. Uber aggressive with food and and they don't mess around. Proper little mantisey gangsters.
Pnigomantis grow to quite a large insect and will require something around 12"x12"x12" cage or something thereabouts.
Highly cannibalistic and do not play well with others.
These guys are fairly slow growing and therefore long lived, even the males.
Pnigomantis Medioconstricta are anything from a pinky brown colour to green to beige coloured as nymphs but will grow into stunning marbled grey coloured adults.
