giant asian mantis (hierodula grandis) - from Bangladesh, NE-India, Myanmar

i fed my adult female african mantis (sphrodomantis lineola) to my adult female giant asian mantis because she was getting old and dying. the females can get up to almost 4 inches, one of the biggest praying mantids seen in the hobby. they are capable of eating small birds, reptiles and mammals.
