The spiny flower mantis or Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii, a native of Kenya is a small and very attractive flower mantis. This stunning and colorful insect is definitely a treat for the eyes as it displays a variety of colors on its body and wings. The bottom of its abdomen has a spiny appearance and hence the name Spiny flower mantis. This is an insect that is very easy to rear and hence is a favorite pet species among hobbyists.

Since the spiny flower mantis is from Africa, they do best in fairly high temperatures in the range of 25 to 30 degrees C. This temperature can be provided by using a heat mat. Extra heat is not needed in summer but it is a must in winter. At night the temperature can be reduced to about 18 ° C. These insects do not have high humidity requirements. The ideal humidity level is about 60%. Spraying water around 2-3 times a week is good enough to provide adequate moisture and humidity. Make sure to avoid too much moisture, as it may lead to the formation of molds, which is unfavorable for the proper growth and life cycle of the mantis.

This is a small Flower Mantis, it does not get very big (1.5 inches) 

It is truly unique and colorful.

The adult has spiny structures on the underside of its abdomen, giving it its name. It is variable in color being typically greenish, but it can equally be yellowish, pinkish or reddish. It has a striking spiral "9" mark on its forewings providing a conspicuous eyespot in black, green and cream surrounded by a green patch. 

The hind wings are orange on the inner part and transparent on the outer part. 

The species is common in captivity and is easy to rear. The female lays egg cases almost three times its size.

The Spiny Flower Mantis has an interesting display in which it spreads its forewings, making itself appear larger and prominently displaying its eyespots to startle would-be predators. 

While at rest it is well camouflaged, and is a sufficiently good aggressive mimic of a flower that prey insects can attempt to pollinate it, at which moment the mantis seizes and eats them.

The spiny flower mantis mostly prefers to eat flying insects. Young ones or nymphs can be given fruit flies, pin head crickets, and other small insects while adults can be given crickets, roaches, moths, locusts, mealworms, houseflies, and other flying insects. Take care not to offer poisonous insects, bees or wasps because these insects may turn out to be harmful to your pet. This mantis, being highly voracious will finish off their food fairly quickly. However, once you notice that their abdomen has become large after food intake, stop feeding them. This insect will usually get sufficient fluids from the food they eat. However, it would be a good idea to spray the walls of your pet’s enclosure a few times a week. The mantis, if it needs water will drink off from the tiny water droplets from the walls of the cage.

This small mantis is able to kill prey several times larger than itself.

The female is an easy mantis to breed and she can lay a very large egg sack.
