    Even more mantid pics

    First up, male Deroplatys lobata, he's got his wings now, just needs a girlfriend.


    Out for a stretch


    Mmm, drumstick




    And a baby Sibylla pretiosa

    Nice! I'd love to see the D. lobata against some birch wood.

    That Sibylla gets some neat wings as an adult, the contrast with the rest of the mantid is striking.

    That Sibylla pretiosa nymph looks very much like my Idolomantis Diabolica L2's.

    How big is it?

    When I got my L2's, I was astonished at how big they are.

    They were L1's when I got them. If you don't count their extremely long legs, head to tip of uncurled tail was about 7mm. This one in the photo is now L2, about 12mm.
