Here is the other webpage I've been working on!  Whew!  That's enough for now!  Lots of time goes into making these things!

Enjoy!  Provided you like insects that "pray."  ("Prey?")


The MANTIS

That's my favorite insect! Very Happy I am glad that you linked that great webpage. Do you think [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] are identifiable to the species level? Maybe they're all Mantis religiosa.
I remember playing with these animals while a kid, they were quite easy to catch and really impressive creatures. Obviously, I never killed them, I did it just for fun and later it was free again.

Thank you Susanne. I'm glad you could enjoy them and learn about these wonderful creatures at the same time! And you are correct, it was a time consuming effort to make both of them. They were always something I wanted to create!

The alias of "Praying Mantis" originated from the M. religiosa species which may also be the most widespread species in the world. Here in the U.S; even the Chinese species on my site are called the "Praying mantis." The Chinese variety has become the dominate species in North America. I do have M. religiosa in my area but they are somewhat rare and are absent usually when the bigger species is around. The Chinese can be twice the size of the European variety.

I also love these insects! Mantids and Cicadas are my favorites!

I'm happy you both enjoyed the sites! cheers

Thanks for your reply. Watching your pictures, Chinese mantis look very long and delicate when compared with those I used to see in my childhood. Naming of arthropods is always somewhat confuse, there are always so many species so similar that common names get confuse. :)

The Chinese Mantis definitely doesn't look delicate in person! Especially the females! They are bulkier than the males and can pack a powerful "pinch" if you hold one the wrong way!

Perhaps one day I will photograph a European and a Chinese Mantid side by side for scale. However, I'd have to be extremely careful since I'd fear the Chinese species may eat the smaller European variety. Shocked

YES! A complete site for Mantisses Very Happy
I adore these insects, since my encounter in Spain with two of them Very Happy
Beautiful photos and so much information. It reads easy and the colors don't bother me at all Very Happy

Judging by that photo Night Lioness, that nice pic appears to be the species Mantis Religiosa. (male) They are more scarce where I'm from. I will try to obtain more photos of them this summer. I will have to hunt a little harder for them.

Happy you liked the site! cheers
