SPINY FLOWER MANTIS - Colorful - Easy Care - EducationaL - FUN PET - FREE FLIES

Product Description

One Spiny Flower Mantis ... Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi

A small container of fruit flies will come with your mantis.

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

They are native to southern and eastern Africa.

The second photo is for display purposes only.  This is what an adult spiny flower mantis will look like.

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. 

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.

We ship these mantis with insulated padding in a secure shipping box.

If the weather is cold in your area, 35 degrees F. or colder you must add a heat pack to your order.
