these mantis,are so differant then the ones i see here un the use, these from spain are really odd,can you pick them up or will bite !!! here we can pick them up and move them to a safe place or near the porch light for a good feast!
Thanks for your nice comment.Yes,this is an odd looking species,but not agressive at all!
Not creepy – a jewel. The Duchess of Windsor would have had a pin made out of it….
Yes,for me it’s a jewel as well.But I know that there are a lot of people who disagree…
