-Thai Bark Mantis-

Humbertiella sp. 'Thailand' 


-This is an incredible group of bark mantids, they are highly active predators that commonly hunt up and down vertical tree trunks. They may ambush prey, or even run it down with aggression not commonly seen in mantids. This species originates from Thailand, but members of the genus are found across Asia. 


-These mantids are active predators and benefit from appropriately sized, vertically oriented enclosures. I provide each specimen with a wide piece of flat bark, or a wide branch to rest and hunt upon. Good ventilation, frequent light mistings, and frequent feedings are all beneficial for these dimunitive predators. 


-This species remains fairly small, 1.5-2" is fairly common adut size with males being slightly smaller than females.

The reflected size varies quite a bit and is influenced by the adult size of the organism. Please contact us for more detailed information and ideal prey sizes.
