    Default New Expo pickup, micro alien!

    We were good at the Expo we vended this past weekend and only bought one thing, a very young female Ghost Praying mantis.
    They had Orchid mantids there too, that I was super tempted by but we figured we'd just start out with a Ghost and see if we can keep her alive and thriving before jumping in headlong. Sounds like next year the vendor is going to have an amazing array of mantids to chose from, so we might really be in trouble!

    Here are some macro shots of her, very hard to try and get any meaningful size perspective in these, but she could sit on my thumb nail and not reach the edges.

    Great photos! I have seen quite a few mantids available lately.

    She molted for the first time with us awhile ago and has doubled in size. I took these pictures a few minutes ago, unfortunately they aren't quite as good as the ones my husband took just after we got her.
