Mantid Kingdom

Praying mantids and feeder insects!

About Us

I have been raising mantids since I was 8 years old. My wife has been putting up and helping me with my hobby since we met many moons ago. We have raised about 35 different mantis species at the time of writing this. Currently, I keep about 15 praying mantis species.

I really enjoy raising mantids, as well as other insects and animals, and I am pretty sure I will be doing this for the majority of my life. I’m trying to get as many different species of praying mantids to raise as I can, so I will be constantly updating this website with pictures, information, setup ideas, and whatever else I can think of to help educate those who wish to learn about mantids. Hopefully, I will be able to supply many exotic mantids here in the US, as there are so many interested in them, yet so few breeders.

Anyway, enjoy my site, and don’t hesitate to email me about anything praying mantid related: questions, ideas, suggestions, or help finding a particular species. I’m always up for a good chat =)
