Spiny Flower Mantis

Spiny flower mantises are a species everybody must experience. These Pseudoscreobotra wahlbergi used to appear in the pet stores from time to time and have been circulating around the US hobby for 20+ years. They are larger than the Creobroter species we sometimes see, and with nearly twice the body mass. Better yet, they have more striping and little flanges all over their bodies. They were once popularly referred to as #9 mantises for the symbol-like pattern on their backs.

L2/L3 or so nymphs (have shed their skin once or twice). $13 each, unsexed.

Note that the photo is of an adult mantis. Mantises get their wings at maturity. The available nymphs are currently capable of eating fruit flies or house fly sized prey.
