    Special photo shoot of the now subadult male Ghost (all 4 are now subadult, and I have suspicions that my green one might be a male too, though others disagree with me...). This has definitely stolen title as one of my favorite species

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Also took a shoot of Greenie (turns out, definitely female, jsut a very weird crest). She's one of the brightest green I've seen photos of.

    Had a stick mantis hatch! Sadly, only 9 made it out of the egg case, and only 5 have thus far survived...with these odds, I haven't bothered yet taking a photo of them. Additionally, for whatever reason I lost one of my panther mantids, and one of my only 2 males seems to be absolutely refusing to eat for no good reason, so I may have to rely on the one good male I've got.

    Better news: all 4 ghosts are now actually at subadult! They're getting bigger than I thought they would...

    The male has a wicked pattern that none of the others emulate

    Greenie is developing multiple shades though

    And one crappy shot of Tall Dark and Girlie through the side of her cage...

    The female ghosts are adult! Greenie isn't all that green currently, but she'll probably color up again shortly

    Sadly, the dark brown one had a mismolt, probably falling at some point and so ending up with both raptorial arms and two of her hind limbs not working at all. However, she is capable of being hand-fed (as I found out tonight), so perhaps once the male molts she might become a mother yet!

    And, still got some Giant Asians (one male, mostly females otherwise) going strong. Most weren't mated so they keep laying infertile ooths; ironically, the ones that did mate were far more reluctant to lay.
