This is Hana my Orchid mantis.
She is gorgeous.
I bought both Mantids from my local pet shop. They ordered them in from a Mantis breeder.

Hana is female because she has a little "unicorn horn " between her eye and a green collar.
She's due a molt soon. I can't wait to see what she is like as an adult.
She is from Malaysia ( well her species are ) and are one of the most beautiful mantids in the world. Very coveted. I'm so honoured to have her in my collection.

Ghidorah is a lovely boy who is the sweetest male in the world.
He also came from my local pet shop.
I've had his species before, in the form of a feisty female who I named " Kirei "
She was a handfull I can tell you..
She was a sweet girl but very un Predictable.
I like a challenge
I like this species because of its feisty personality. Ghidorah on the other hand, doesn't display any of the feistiness at all. He is the complete opposite.

Thank you....Yes she is a lovely mantis, with a great personality. I love hanging out with her and I can't wait to see her wings eventually.
I do miss my Ghost mantis. He was only a baby when he passed. I miss him. He was a lovely little lad.
Ghosts are my favourite species of mantid.

Lovely babies you have there (and sorry about your Ghost baby)~ <3 Female Orchids are so beautiful, you're in for a treat! Also super jealous that you have a local pet store that stocks mantids.

Thank you very much. Yes I miss my Ghost boy. He was a little sweetheart.
My Orchid girl is really robust and growing fast, and eats well. I can't wait for her to mature and see her wings. Although at the same time, I'm in no rush because I want her to live as long as possible.
My local pet shop apon request orders mantids in, so that's cool and I'm really happy it does.

Thank you for your kind words about Zaouli. Xx
