choice to include the mantis's current enclosure (a modified MINI enclosure with moss mesh and substrate) for an additional $10.00. your mantis will be comfortable in this enclosure until about L5.

I bought my orchid mantis at the show in Taylor MI on 6/11. The enclosure she was in was included and had moss ribbon that she loved to hang from. Ophelia molted about 2 weeks after I brought her home, ate & drank well, and was always bright, alert, and healthy.

Sadly, 3 days ago she started acting abnormally. I reached out to Marshall Arachnids and they responded in less than 12 hours. The owner spent a lot of time on the phone with me, trying to figure out what was happening. He took his time, was very thorough, I never felt rushed, and he made sure I didn't have any additional questions before we hung up. He also welcomed me to reach out again if I needed to.
Unfortunately, Ophelia didn't make it (which was because of something I did, NOT Marshall). They really went above and beyond trying to help me.
They are an amazing shop and really care about their insects/arachnids.
I also bought a Regal Jumping Spider from them and he/she is doing very well.
I'll be getting a new Orchid Mantis from them soon.


After choosing a arrival date they shiped it out the day before, arrived as a L4 female . They also included a realy nice enclosure for her. I named her tofu and I’ve had her for 10 days, she hasent had her first molt yet but I still put her into her bigger enclosure. I always have to take her out of her enclosure and but her on to my bed, then I release a fruit flie onto my bed and let her hunt it down. I do this twise every other day and it works fine. It loves fruit flies but can even eat 1/2 inch crickets. I was very carefull when feding her crickets tho as they could of hurt her. Anyways I recommend this 10/10
