The Giant Asian Praying Mantis is a large typical looking praying mantis from Asia.
A classic looking praying Mantis .Colours vary from green to yellow-green or brown to reddish-brown. Measure roughly 80 - 90mm in size when adult this again makes them a large specie to own. Due to their size, they are heavily built and look similar to the Giant Indian and Giant Malaysian Mantis.
East-South Asia. Living in hot and humid climates they can be maintained with a temperature of 22 - 30C (71.6 - 86F), with the humidity in the region of 60 - 70%. If this is not quite right, don't panic! - they'll be fine.
The answer is YES!!! A larger, suitable species for any beginner. Feeding isn't a problem, they are vigorous eaters and will tackle anything. The habitat for this Mantis, is mainly shrubs and tree areas. Set up of the cage should be in a similar way with branches and leaves.
We wouldn't recommend keeping these together past their 3rd/4th shed. Although, we did keep five Nypmhs together upto sub-adult size in the same net cage and there wasn't that much food provided! Although, we have never tried keeping the adults together - the males quite often get eaten if the females are slightly hungry, so we're not risking it!
The Rankins Dragons is a smaller species to the Bearded Dragon, reaching a total length of 12 inch. These are ideal for beginners who do not have the space for a large vivarium that is required with the Bearded Dragon.
