Zine: Hierodula majuscula Praying Mantis Care Guide
The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 8 was Care Guide. For me, that meant creating a care guide for my Fluffy Jellyfish blog all about the Hierodula majuscula Praying Mantis.
Praying Mantids make fantastic pets as they are beautifully unusual creates, and are fascinating to observe. This care guide is all about how to care for the Hierodula majuscula Praying Mantis.
Gamora was my Hierodula majuscula, and my introduction to the world of Mantis keeping - this zine is dedicated to her! Gamora was a beautiful 9.5cm lady, and her adult form was a stunning shade of bright green, with sharp contrasting reds on her forelegs. I had her from an L4 instar, and she lived to a great old age of 23months. I miss you special lady, you brought so much joy into my life.
This mini-zine is printed in fantastic full colour on a 100gsm paperstock to form a mini 8-page folded booklet.
