A Mantis is an insect pet found in Forbidden Valley.

Wild Mantises can be found along the Perilous Path and at Mantis Rock, the latter of which is named after these insects. They reside among the rock crags of the area and can be tamed after learning how to tame pets at Pet Cove. To tame a Mantis, players must assemble a butterfly model. Once tamed, Mantis Pets can dig up buried Treasure Chests and activate Pet Bouncers.
