I'm not sure how they work as far as colorations, but some look like death. I'm not sure if they molt into those colors or what.

I don't think that is the same. Probably an idolmantis or something. I've done some searching for them and I haven't seen that pic or anything like it yet.

I can only ID a few species, despite my screen name.

Those few are the European and Chinese mantids, as well as the small handful of exotics I've owned (H. grandis, P. whalbergii, H. coronatus, and whatever the African budwing is called).

No one, anywhere, has ever had a foot-long mantis.

I find the existence of a six inch mantis almost impossible to believe without photographic evidence.

The European mantids I find around here top out at 2.5" but everyone ALWAYS exaggerates. "I swear it was six inches!!" they tell me. Rolling Eyes

do you mean the Idolomantis diabolica that i put up, it isnt an orchid mantid but it is very beautiful but also virtually impossible to get hold of, and even harder to breed succesfully.
