    Baby Deroplatys Dessicata / Dead Leaf Mantids

    Just thought I'd share some pics of some DLM I got this weekend

    PS~ I would be willing to trade one for a nice HL Nep(s) of = value to a CCB DLM
    Would also be interested in Tityus scorpion Sp. {Serrulatus} or any large centipede Sp.
    If anyone is interested
    At the moment would prefer Neps over Inverts thought

    What is considered equal value, and would you have a M/F pair to trade? My tradeability is rather low at the moment, but I'd be interested to see what the value of these guys is considered to be.

    Awesome! I haven't owned any Deroplatys yet.

    Soopa, here's a link to a retail mantid site and their entry for D. dessicata: http://www.mantisplace.com/mantisfor...tml#Ddesiccata

    Next to maybe a Violin Mantis / Gongylus Gongyloides {Never had any} they are one of the coolest looking mantids
    &
    I dig on their "Personality" for lack of a better term
    They do this cool side to side head bobbing thing & the adults look like a cobra when they rear up

    Sorry, I don't have a pair available / I'm only looking to trade One out
    = Value I would say would be a plant that's in the $25 to $30 range

    I've got a pair Violins, the male just molted today and he's still about 1/2 the size of the female - same age same foods. She's a real monster! I need to move her to a 20 gallon vertical cos she's pretty much outgrown her 10 gallon. She does a whole side-to-side body dance, I can do it back at her and she keeps doing it or doing it more vigorously - kinda fun!

    I've read they only get 4" or so but she's over 5" now and not yet on her final instar so she's got at least one or two more molts to go, she's gonna be big. The male is probably 3 1/2 - 4" but his overall body mass is so much smaller than her, he's spindly - she's beefy!
