    Mantis threat post

    Finally one of my Creobroters gives me a threat pose. I opened up her (I think) enclosure, she came out and I gave her a cricket. When she was done, I tried to get her on my hands and I got my very first threat pose from a Creobroter nebulosa. No time to set up a nice shot, just wanted to capture the moment.

    If there was a jaw-dropping smiley, this would be the post where I would use it...

    That is such a perfect shot
