Showing a picture of 'praying mantis'

By Morph:
Here is a picture of mantids that are several hours old. The egg case was kept in this container with a moist cotton swab for added humidity. The container was kept at outside temperatures ranging from about 70 to 90 degrees. Just after I took this picture, I gradually released the mantids around the property in shaded areas away from ants and spiders who could easily find them tasty at this stage!
