Practical 3-Gear Shift

This Ride-On has a gear-shift handle which corresponds to two forward gears and one reverse gear when your child press his foot down on the foot pedal. And the second forward gear will bring a faster speed than the first one, bringing a more thrilling experience.

Considerate Measures for Safety

We deliberately add handrails beside the seat and an adjustable safety belt with a buckle to prevent your child from falling off. And you will know the time to recharge according to the battery display next to the volume buttons.

Skid-Proof and Night-Driving

Rubber strips are installed on driving wheels, intending to get better power response and prevent tires slipping. And the headlights can be open or closed as needed through the switch on the operating panel, which allows your kid to play at night.

Ideal Relaxation and Recreation

The built-in audio device can play the preset sounds as well as other music inputted through the USB port or the Bluetooth in an adjustable volume, perfectly creating the ambience of real tractor driving which combines relief and joy.


Orchid Mantis, or Hymenopus coronatus, is a beautiful pink and white mantis with lobes on its legs that look like flower petals. Although this species does not live on orchids, it does look remarkably well like a flower or orchid. The Orchid Mantis is white with soft or bright pink accents. Some individuals are completely white, others completely pink and yet others are somewhat of a mix. One mantis can change color in a matter of days, depending on the environmental conditions like humidity and light conditions.

An adult female is approximately 6 to 7 cm long, while the male is only about 2,5 cm. This size difference is definitely not to be missed! Because the male is that much smaller, he also matures earlier than the female (he does not need so much time to grow). The male and female also differ in appearance; the adult male has white wings with a pink-orange body, almost no lobes on the legs and long wings, while the female can vary in color and has large lobes on the legs. On her back the female has a green spot, while the male does not have this green spot but rather a brownish spot.


This species is very popular and loved as a pet because of its beautiful bright colors and amazing camouflage. This species has lobes on its legs that mimic flower petals. Its natural habitat consists of white and pink flowers in bushes and small trees. In this way, the mantis can remain unseen to predators such as birds and at the same time can catch pollinating insects that are attracted to the flowers. It is found in the rainforests of Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia. It is also found in the Western Ghats of India.


The Orchid Mantis is a quiet kind of praying mantis. Usually she stays waiting for a prey. Sometimes it will hunt after a prey when they detect it. Adult males can be extremely skittish and hyperactive. The adult male will often (try to) fly away when disturbed. The species is carnivorous, mainly catching other insects. In the laboratory, it prefers lepidopteran prey. Its diet consists of small insects, including crickets, flies, fruit flies, beetles, and stinging insects such as bees. Some are cannibalistic, eating their own siblings when one strays too close.


The first instar of the Orchid Mantis is dark orange with black legs and a black head. After the first molt, the nymphs are white with hot pink accents. The amount of pink can vary a lot between individuals but also during the lifetime of one individual. After mating, the female lays a cluster of eggs in a protein-rich foamy pouch called an ootheca. Mantes have three major life stages: egg, nymph, and adult. For an Orchid Mantis, it can contain upwards of over 100 eggs. It takes them 6 weeks to hatch. In nature, they are laid at the beginning of winter and they hatch in early spring.

The average lifespan for Orchid Mantis depends on their sex. Due to the males’ extremely small size, they mature at a much quicker rate, leaving their lifespan only around 6 months. Females, on the other hand, have the upper hand, having a lifespan of 8 months.

Praying Mantises Are Becoming More Popular as Pets

Caring for insects as pets may sound strange, but thousands of people all over the world already have praying mantises and other stick insects as pets, according to a new report from Pensoft Publishers.

Praying mantises are gaining popularity and fueling a largely unknown market. They are sold at fairs and pet markets, or collected in the wild and then reared by amateurs or professionals.

Some are elegant, with flower-like coloration (the Orchid Mantis, Hymenopus coronatus), and some resemble Pokémons (the Jeweled Flower Mantis, Creobroter wahlbergii). Surprisingly, some of these creatures can even be cuddled (the Giant Shield Mantis Rhombodera basalis).

When selecting an insect as a pet, features such as shape, size, colors, and behaviors are considered. Customers also shop for species that are rare or easy to care for.

It is important to understand how this market, which is largely unregulated, is changing. This could be crucial to conserve rare species and promote awareness of their habitat and place in the ecosystem.

Now, researchers have published a first overview of the praying mantis pet market. The research team includes Roberto Battiston of Museo di Archeologia e Scienze Naturali G. Zannato (Italy), William di Pietro of the World Biodiversity Association (Italy) and entomologist Kris Anderson (USA).

The study authors surveyed 200 hobbyists, professional sellers in the mantis community from 28 different countries. The results showed that the targets of this market are indeed predictable. The typical mantis breeder or enthusiast is 19 to 30 years old, prefers beautiful species over rare ones, and is willing to spend over $30 per insect.

The researchers identified buyers as “mostly curious enthusiasts with poor knowledge of the market dynamics and the laws behind it, even if they seem to generally care about their pet.”

But the data suggests the trade is not always legal. One out of four instances lack permits or transparency from the seller. To ensure these species are conserved in nature, the researchers emphasize that collaboration between scientists and the insect pet community should be considered.

The biology, distribution, and threats to insects are largely unknown. Many species are still waiting to be discovered. This is a big limit to conservation, since you cannot protect what you don’t know.

“Hobbyists and pet insect enthusiasts are producing and sharing a huge quantity of observations on the biology and ecology of hundreds of species, even rare or still undescribed ones, a priceless heritage for the scientific community,” said the researchers.

“Strengthening the dialogue between them, promoting a white market over a black one, may be a crucial help for the conservation of these insects, fundamental parts of the biodiversity of our planet, that are replacing our traditional pets at home.”
