These are one of my favorites, they are great easy to handle eager to eat and will even wait by food dish like a dog when hungry! I love them and they are prolific breeders and ooth have as many as 250 nymphs hatch. Always a great choice for beginners and every collector. Sphodromantis is a crowd pleaser! Colors range from green to tan. It is said that they can change color depending on the food and their environment.
