21 spiny flower mantis babies born

This 20 November 2015 video from Amersfoort zoo in the Netherlands is about the recent birth there of 21 spiny flower mantis babies.

After about two months, the eggs of this African insect species hatched.

The youngsters will need to molt seven times before they reach adulthood, when they will be as colourful as their parents.

This 26 September 2014 is about when the spiny flower mantis adults had just arrived in the zoo.

This video shows some adults as well.
