Sweet pictures. These guys line in third place after Hymenopus coronatus and Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii among my favourite mantis! Keep this thread updated, I'd really love to be where you are and watch the babies hatch out and grow!! Very Happy

^I had P. whalbergii once . . . died getting ready to molt, and I never saw it as adult. Sad

Yaaaaay. That's tight. I didn't know that egg cases could be produced so fast.
Graham, that thing looks like it would be in a Disney Pixar movie. Or maybe Dreamworks.

Too bad Mike. I don't know if its just me and my noob ways of keeping them. But mantids seem to be really fragile. I've had no luck keeping any for more than a couple months, but a few friends of mine have had luck breeding Dead Leaf and Orchid Mantis. Breeding them seem really fun, especially when the younglings pop out (looking almost like mosquitos).

They are! You kept any before coco? I've never seen one in real life before!

@lycan - The pic is an absolute devil. I've had it as my wall paper since May! I really love observing the way people react to my wallpapers. Lol!
