Spiny Flower Mantis

I’ve recently gained a couple of Mantids, one of which is the Spiny Flower Mantis (Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii). This is only a 3rd instar nymph at the moment so has some growing to do. It measures approximately 10-12mm in body length and will probably grow to 35-40mm when mature. Today was its’ first photo shoot and the first shots can be seen below.  You can see all my Mantis shots here
