    I would like to address the leg issue. Your mantid looks like its nearing adulthood. It may have only one or two molts to go (one can tell by looking at the wing buds). If it will go through two more molts, then the missing leg may regenerate completely. If not, then it will partially regenerate.

    Since mantids are arthropods, they always have the chance to regenerate lost or damaged limbs. The more moltings the animal goes through, the better the limb will heal.

    The smaller one is shedding right now, it's almost done. Should I try to feed it after it's done?

    Wait about two days after it molts before feeding and/or handling.

    Ok I checked on it now and it still has some dried skin on the end but most of it is gone. I was freaked out though because the shedding mantid was on the other side of the divider with the other mantid. I put it back and somehow stitched the gap it got through. What are segments exactly? Are they the sections on the abdomen? Does the upper body area count as a segment? Do you count the segments from the mantids underside or the top? I think this is a female... Here's a picture

    what is the black oval on it's shoulder? Caring for mantids is fun, we get a brown variety with fat abdomens around here, they like to drink water from my finger tips. Just wet your fingers and let a drop of water stick to the tip of your finger and bring it to the mantis's mouth. Thye actually drink.
