I'm a mantis keeper and i just started and i have around 15 Giant asian L2's which means they have molted once. These guys will get to be about 5 inches and can eat 10" snakes if given the chance. There is DOCUMENTAION of them catching humming birds, snakes, mice and other small verterbrates. I really want on orchid mantis http://www.natureartists.com/art/cre..._6_Ophelia.jpg and a gambian boxer mantis http://ttwebbase.dyndns.org/images/db/3491.jpg
Any questions on these incredible predators let me know!
