The secretion is a defense mechanism. It can't kill you, but it's harmful if you get it in your eyes or mouth. It also
stains and irritates the skin. If you never handle them, or never handle them roughly, they're not dangerous. Just
be sure to wash your hands.

I've handled a. gigas many times and they have never secreted anything Smile I have also handled my spirostreptus gregorius many times, and they have never done it either Smile

Absolutely gorgeous. Is this you first time with Phyllocrania? Do they have a high humidity need? And how do you accommodate that? Mantids are my first love.

wow. Thats a pretty exotic species for a first timer. Mantises are very touchy. I have no experience with this species, but ive found M. religiosa and t.a.sinenses to be very touchy. Those are beautiful little guys though. How many did you order?
