    The wings of this mantid also only go about 3/4ths of the way down her abdomen
    so it's a female? b/c it's an adult... but females are supposed to have wings 1/2 way down... not 3/4... so could it be a 3/4 grown male?(the wings don't make sense though)
    dyflam, are you talking about the video? I remember a disc. channel mantis video where they showed a mantis eating a hummingbird... also a mouse and a snake [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I didn't know about that spot thing! so 90% of the mantids I"ve seen are european go figure.... I live in NC and only see european mantids :P

    I had the link in my favorites, but cleaned it out a couple months ago. The site had been taken down [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] .

    Carolina mantid males are much smaller than females and have wings going all the way down the abdomen.

    Swords: I dunno if I would consider these good shots, but that is a pretty interesting thought.

    How big did those lineola get...I heard 6 inches.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis
