Hierodula majuscula (Giant Rainforest Mantis)

Hierodula majuscula (Giant Rainforest Mantis)

A fairly easy to care for species, the Hierodula majuscula are also known as the Giant Rainforest Mantis. Growing to around 8-10cm when adult.

 Being from Australia they do prefer warmer temperatures, although they live comfortably at general room temperature. A  humidity of around 65% - 85% % will be fine with spraying regularly or  as they get dry.

 Keep on a diet of Fruit Fly and small insects until larger when they require more substantial prey, able to attack and dispatch live most live prey with ease, a Mantis can be a truly fascinating addition to your invert collection.


Housing: Keep in a small netted encloser and grow it as they grow, giving them room to grow but keeping the space small to aid hunting
