    Those are some great pictures. Beautiful orchid, too! I'm sure that mantids can be shipped to Long Beach. In fact, you can buy egg cases on Amazon.

    Nice photos! That last one is awsome! Dinner! I like mantises too. Love how their heads swivel around.

    If its an Giant Asian Mantid its gonna get HUGE. Well unless its a Male... Just wait until it molts a few times, You might see it hanging upside down just leave it be its molting. When you see wings they will be either BIG or small, the big ones are the females, then you know your mantid will get big.
