Cat eye mantis (Heterochaeta orientalis)

Cat eye mantis (Heterochaeta orientalis)

L3 now available

This beautiful stick mimick mantis gets its name from its distinctive cat like eyes.

Cat eye can also grow very large with some females reported to reach 14 even 15cm so be prepared to upgrade enclosures as it grows are this is not the mantis for you.

Males can reach sizes of 10cm.

I have found they are extremely fast and can jump very far. They will almost always venture out as soon as the enclosure is opened. 

Overall a very active and enjoyable species but remember they will grow BIG!
