Thought I would share a picture of my mantis.
I dont know what kind he is. I am going to try to take some body pictures but this was the pose he gave me :)
Maybe you guys can identify him

This is a fairly rare species, Gonodactylaceus ternatensis. I have collected them in Thailand and Australia and have seen a few come in from Bali. This individual is a male. If it had orange/yellow antennal scales, it would be a female.

What a beauty. Can you attach some more pictures JEMicahel?
How long have you had your mantis?

As another CO resident (Boulder, actually) I'm curious as to where you got the mantis. I'm still searching for some leads on getting them.

Email me if interested.
