Ok! This is my Phyllocrania Paradoxica, or Ghost Mantis.

About Ghost Mantises:

These guys get a mere 1.5 inches. They live around 7-9 months. You can tell them apart by the crown. They can also be kept together.

About him:

His name is Charlie. He lives in a 2.5 gallon tank. He was ordered online from us.mantis.com. I feed him Greenbottle flies, Earwigs, and the occasional grub or worm. He loves to climb on my hand. I also got bit by him once! It didn’t really hurt, it was just like “AHHH, I didn’t expect that!” He enjoys climbing on newspaper as well. Thinks it is his personal playground.

Housing:

Charlie lives in a 2.5 gallon tank. He has a substrate from Joshua Tree. I put in a few rocks, and some sticks. He also has orchid bark, oak leaves, and some other stuff I found in my yard at the bottom.

This is my second try for photography. This time, I used a camera I use for macro stuff in the field. Isnt the best pic, but whatever!

Dont only vote on cuteness!

Well done! I’m glad you entered another photo - I couldn’t identify him at all in the original and thought the ‘ghost’ was some sort of joke 😳😂
