African Mantis is fast growing and large species, very aggressive eater, starting with fruit flies but switching to curly wings house flies or green bottle flies quickly. Sub-adults can be fed with Turkestan Cockroaches (Blatta lateralis, former Shelfordella tartara, Red Runner Roach) and comparable species (like Pallid roach or Lobster Roach) – be careful with these feeding objects as they are able to injure mantises if you will leave them in cage unattended.
