The Australian Rainforest Mantis is one of the largest mantid species in Australia. They feed mostly on small invertebrates, but are also known to attack snakes and even birds.
These mantises are naturally bright green and yellow - the rest of its rainbow colors have been enhanced.
This unique specimen has been carefully mounted in a black shadowbox with decorative black accents, to reflect its nocturnal nature. The shadow box itself measures just under 6x8 inches - the glass opening measures about 4.5x6.5 inches.
The back of this piece has an opening for easy hanging, but is also perfectly able to stand on its own.
