Asian Flower mantis.C. gemmatus

Males grow to about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) and females are slightly larger. They prefer a humid environment and live about nine months in captivity. Females can be cannibalistic but males are fairly communal. Though infrequent, cannibalism among C. germmatus is nevertheless more common than among other flower mantises.

They molt 8 times to become an adult and can take between 2 and 5 months to mature depending on food and temperature. They are the smallest yet most widespread Creobroter species. They make easy pets with proper care and it is said there is a 90% survival rate among nymphs.

An easy-to-keep flower mantis, which has a smiley-like decoration on its wings. When displaying the pink inner wings show off. Many bodyparts can vary between white, pink and green like the well known
