About

Yunnan flower mantis, Creobroter sp “Yunnan”, are a beautiful species of flower mantis popular for their colourful & beautifully patterned wings that are revealed during threat displays. On the exterior of the wings are bright yellow spots designed to look like eyes to deter potential predators. The Yunnan flower is a smaller species of mantis that will typically grow to 1.5 inches long.  This mantis species hails from the tropical forests of south Asia, and so prefers a warmer & humid environment that, with a little effort, can be easily maintained.

Feeding

Yunnan flower mantis enjoy hunting flying livefood such as blue/green bottle flies and mature waxmoths. Young nymphs should be fed D.melanogaster or D.hydeii fruit flies until they grow larger, after which they can switch to various flying prey around 1/3rd the size of their total body length. Praying mantis should be fed until the abdomen becomes round and plump, indicating they have eaten enough.

Environmental Conditions

Praying mantis require a habitat at least 3x as tall as the mantis’s total body length. This space is needed to ensure that, when molting, the mantis can safely extend toward the ground to shed its skin. Yunnan flower mantis nymphs are around 1cm long. Creobroter sp. “Yunnan” should be kept at a relative humidity level of around 70% RH for prime health, and at a temperature of around room temperature or warmer with help from a heat mat attached to one side of their enclosure. Misting the walls of the enclosure will ensure the mantis can regularly drink, and that the enclosure humidity remains high.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
