    Giants!

    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!

    anybody interested in mantids at all?
    All fear violence, all are afraid of death.
    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.

    Sure! I just don't know much about them. Though mine just shed his/her skin yesterday and has a nice set of wings now. I let my daughter hold it while I cleaned out the gallon jar I keep it in. We (my daughter and I) think they (she has one also) are the common Asian or Chinese mantid. I'll try to get some pics and post them tomorrow.
