Pink Orchid Mantis Looks Like a Beautiful Flower

Orchid Mantis is a mantis from Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Sumatran rainforests. These mantises thrive in moist, warm areas of South East Asian rainforests. These mantis can be found on papaya trees, orchids, or frangipani trees with flowers.

The Orchid Mantis is white with soft or bright pink accents. Some individuals are completely white, others are completely pink and still others are a bit of a mix. A Orchid Mantis can change color in a matter of days, depending on environmental conditions such as humidity and light.

Their enemies include lizards, geckos, jumping spiders, toads, birds, rodents, bats and shrews. Orchid Mantis is a quiet kind of praying mantis. Usually she keeps waiting for a prey. Sometimes it will chase after prey if they detect.

Because this species lives on flowers, but mainly eats flying insects in nature. It is advisable to include them flying insects in captivity. In captivity the Orchid Mantis diet consists mainly of fruit flies, but they will eat other small insects.
