Oxyopsis peruviana (Peruvian Mantis)

Being a new species in the hobby, information is still sparse. This is a South American mantis, found predominantly in Peru, and surrounding areas.

Such an eloquent and beautiful species, this leaf mantis comes in a variety of colours, from green/yellow, to brown/orange. A good ‘starter’ species, as it is very forgiving with regards to required temperatures, and humidity.
