Chinese Praying Mantis

When I started looking for a praying mantis for sale, I learned one of the best mantises for first time caretakers is the Chinese Mantis. A cool fact about this praying mantis is that there are actually two types of kung-fu named after its movements. ┬áThe Chinese Mantis was imported into the United States in the 1890s as a form of natural pest control. If you live in the United States this means there’s no need to worry about it overtaking native species since it’s already prevalent in North America!

When you buy a praying mantis, the first thing you need to decide is whether you want to buy praying mantis eggs or an adult praying mantis. The praying mantis life cycle is roughly a year for the Chinese Mantis. The adult female praying mantis in the image above is likely a few months to a year old, judging by its size.
