Hey guys,

I've had a mantis in my display since day 1. I think they are really cool creatures. He's very shy, only ever seen him 3 times in 10 months now (I try and coax him out every now and then with no success). He has grown from about 2cm to almost 8cm. It's not the best photo but I was hoping for an ID if possible. He posed for this photo and then disappeared again :lolspin:

If it helps he came in on LR collected in Darwin, N.T. Australia (by myself so I can be sure of that).

Well just been identified on another page as a Gonodactylus chiragra. Good to know!
