I do, although it tends to be late afternoon rather than middle of the day, never seems to bother them

If it's a night creature, it would make sense to leave it alone during the day...

Light travels faster than sound this is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Most mantids don't require extra heating as long as your room is around room temp.

I have leos, and I usually do not wake them up during the day. If you find your cresti awake during the day I don't see any problem with handeling it

i handle mine in the evening when he's awake, i don't think it is fair to drag him out when he's still sleeping.
