Giant Asian Mantis is one of the best choices for beginners as it is large, not demanding and good for handling. Also females can live up to 2 years, what is formidable time for most of insects.
This is very aggressive hunter and this is why it has no issues with feeding – almost any feeding insect of appropriate size suits them (crickets, roaches, locusts, meal- and morio worms, fruit flies and Green Bottle Flies for younger instars). Don’t leave mantis with crickets and roaches unattended, remember – these feeding insects can attack and hurt mantis!
Giant Asian Mantis can be kept free range on a large plant, although this information is based on reports of other keepers/breeders.
