Lobster roaches are one of the best for feeding mantids.

Pros --They never attack the mantids and are a much healthier food than crickets -evidenced by the size and health of mantids fed on lobsters.

Cons-- Lobsters are born too large to feed baby mantids under 10mm long. The mantis cage must not be too large or contain substrate or they may never find the lobster.

Hello Orin, thanks for reply. I got it! so each of both roaches species have their own particular use for feeding insectivorous if considering ground level or uplevel life styles of insectivorous creatures. Thanks, best regards. Roberto.
