As some of you may have read in the general discussion section I got Delilah on the 10th Feb for my birthday. The only thing written on her tub was Indian mantis so she is either Hierodula grandis or membranacea. Your opinions on this would be appreciated, if you can tell.

10th Feb





She shed on 2nd March and these photo's were taken today (10/3/12)

She went through her first shed fine. Then last night she fell whilst shedding :( Very mangled little girl so I sent her to mantid heaven :(

Here are the last few photos I took.

After she had shed in her box that I used to put her in when I cleaned her out.

Sorry to hear that your mantis passed away :( This happened to my stick insect unfortunately at young age! it was tangled up in its old skin I tried to help it but it was too weak and went to "heaven"(The bin)
