L2+ Nymph

The Giant Rainforest Mantis, scientifically known as Hierodula majuscula, is an impressive and beautiful species of praying mantis that inhabits the lush rainforests of Southeast Asia. As its name suggests, this mantis species is known for its large size, making it a popular choice among mantis enthusiasts and collectors. Hierodula majuscula is a large species as typical of members of the genus Hierodula, with females reaching an average length of 4 inches (10 to 12.7 cm) and males slightly smaller at around 3 to 4 inches (7.6 to 10 cm). Their body coloration can vary, but they often display a beautiful combination of lime green with crimson red accents. Hierodula majuscula is an ambush predator, patiently waiting for unsuspecting insects to come within striking distance. They have remarkable agility and lightning-fast reflexes, allowing them to swiftly capture their prey in a swift and precise manner. Their diet mainly consists of various insects, including moths, flies, crickets, and other small arthropods found within their rainforest habitat. The Giant Rainforest Mantis requires a spacious and appropriately designed enclosure to mimic its natural environment. It should include a variety of climbing structures, foliage, and branches to facilitate their natural behaviour and provide ample hiding spots. Maintaining a suitable temperature and humidity level is crucial for their well-being, with temperatures ranging from 75 to 85°F (24 to 29°C) and moderate humidity levels. This species is hardy and simple to care for like other giant Asian mantis. H. Majuscula are extremely docile and can be handled, often enjoying time to free-roam as adults.
