        Not even a whole year. I know some species can live 18 months with proper care. Is he your only mantis?

        Sorry, I didn’t quite get it. You have one Number 9 mantis and two spiney flowers. Is that correct? How long have you been a mantis fancier?

        Smart approach. They are truly super-fascinating and beautiful, but also reasonably low maintenance which makes them a good fit for someone with a busy lifestyle. Where they very expensive?
