Will do. Have you tried over on BN forum? I know it's down at the moment tho.

Sure you dont want an ooth or anything in return?

i thought female mantis ate the male after havin a big boogie lol
if done right she dont eat him.most of time any way..u have to feed her lots untill shes droping food..if shes real full shes not going to eat him..not easy to feed a adult giant asian as much food as u can untill shes droping it..shes been eating 2 full size crikcts every day..man is she big now...dam it i need a male fast..

Marbled Mantis is H parviceps.

H grandis is definately a different species, it's about an inch or 2 bigger than a H parviceps.
the grandis
