The European Green Mantis is an impressive large mantis species, always popular due to their hardy nature and adult appearance (big and green). Adult females can reach 10cm in body length and are very powerful. In the wild they prey upon a wide variety of insects, and other invertebrates. They are capable of catching small geckos and frogs if the opportunity arises. They are also sometimes called the African Giant Mantis as they are a very widespread species.
