Hey, Bex reminded me of these pics I took of a friends mantis. I'm sure he said it was a ghost mantis although this means nothing to me. Cool little guy though and thinking about adding a couple species to the collection. This thing was tiny, like a finger nail size.

They are being sold as livefood to comply with ebay rules. Ebay does not allow selling pets.
