We are now offering Chinese Praying Mantis egg cases (called an "ootheca") for sale.
This species not only makes for an amazing pet, but considering you will hatch up to 250 baby mantids from each egg case, you will have plenty to feed your reptiles and amphibians. Chameleons absolutely relish them!
The egg case can be refrigerated until you would like them to hatch. The babies appear at about 1/4" in size and can be fed fruit flies or pinhead crickets. If allowed to grow, they will eventually reach about 3" in length.
Shipping is free! When you buy a Mantis egg case from us, you automatically receive our 100% live arrival guarantee.
Your European Praying mantis egg case (called an "ooth") will produce many of both sexes. The ooth can be refrigerated until you would like them to hatch. All that is necessary for the eggs to hatch is room temperature for three to eight weeks. Once the babies emerge (at about 1/4" in length), they can be fed fruit flies and pinhead crickets. They make for very entertaining and docile pets, and excellent feeders.
Shipping Your Praying Mantis Egg Case
Shipping is free, regardless of the number of Mantis egg cases you buy. Please peruse our shipping information page before ordering. Orders placed after 1:00pm PST on Wednesday will likely be shipped the following Monday for the safety of the eggs. Sorry, we do not ship internationally (U.S. only).
Because we responsibly offer mantids for sale online (as well as reptiles, amphibians, tarantulas, and scorpions), we reserve the right to delay your order upon the fairly rare occurrence of unacceptable weather conditions. This is strictly for the safety of the insects, and you will be notified by e-mail if this does occur.
We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and Paypal. We do not accept checks, money orders, or cashier's checks.
- Why buy reptiles?We offer exotic reptiles for sale online at absolute rock-bottom prices, which means we make these fascinating animals available to you affordably as pets, or even to start your own reptile breeding project. We are reptile enthusiasts who believe captive breeding is integral to the future of the market, as it not only helps protect wild herp populations, but is an incredibly rewarding experience that tends to intensify one's passion for these amazing prehistoric creatures. Whether you buy a snake, lizard, turtle, tortoise, or alligator, we are driven to provide the highest quality live reptiles for sale.
- Why buy amphibians?Amphibians are generally slower-moving, and have uniquely moist skin which means they are never far from a source of water. Their life cycle is nothing short of incredible: they hatch in water, spend weeks or months in metamorphosis, then become either terrestrial or remain primarily water bound. Some salamanders even breathe through their skin! Our live amphibians for sale online include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. Some are huge, some are small, and virtually all are amazing to observe in captivity. When you buy amphibians from us, you can rest assured they are fully guaranteed to arrive alive and in great condition. Why not start an amphibian breeding project today?
- Why buy feeder insects?Reptile and amphibian food should be varied, which is why we offer an array of feeder insects for sale. It's always far more cost effective to buy feeder insects in bulk, which often saves up to 70% off pet store prices. Plus, the feeders are delivered right to your doorstep. We offer live crickets for sale, as well as mealworms, wax worms, nightcrawlers, and now even lizards, all at the lowest possible prices. Our reptile and amphibian feeder insects and lizards include a guarantee of live arrival.
