Ranatra Water Scorpion


Out of stock


These look like a cross between a piece of grass, a mantis and a stick-insect. Ranatra species 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) to hold onto. They breathe through the end/tip of their abdomens and will hold onto the platform to make this easier.

Rarely available. $12 each. Sorry, NO LIVE GUARANTEE on this aquatic species.
