Short care sheet for Ghost Mantis (Phyllocrania paradoxa):
Origin: Africa and Madagascar
Size: 5 cm
Temperature: 26-30C day / 18-22 night
Humidity: 60-90%, spray regularly

Very cute species with uncommon look, easy to keep.
Starting with fruit flies but switching to curly wings house flies or green bottle flies quickly. Ghost Mantis is classical sit-and-wait predator, so it will not hunt actively – our recommendation is to feed them with harmless feeding objects like flies (roaches/crickets: direct feeding from tweezers only).
Males and females can be easily distinguished by their head extensions – it is longer and thinner by males and shorter and wider by females.
