Ranatra Water Scorpion


2 in stock


These look like a cross between a piece of grass, a mantis and a stick-insect. Ranatra quadridentata are predatory and rely on their resemblance to aquatic weeds to ambush small, live prey. They do fine in any kind of fresh water, but require a floating platform like a stick or piece of floating bark to hold onto. They breathe through the tip of their abdomens and will hold onto the platform to make this easier.

All specimens appear to be adults and are 3 to 4 inches long. $9.99 each. Overnight shipping highly recommended.
