Got an adult pair from Kovachi, and an extra male :D
Here's some pics from earlier, they are crazy fast, they scuttle in short fast bursts, they are currently mating as i type, very easy to pair up :D

Well got her mated the other day and found a small ooth last night :)







And here's her setup i made this morning. Luckly that bit of bark was just the right size, before housing her she was in a medium empty exo with all my spare bark in, she laid on this one so i just put it in with her.

Thanks :)
Might be able to squeeze a second generation from this lot which i've never done with mantids before. Got sub adults now.
Of course i had to have only 1 female and like 5 males.

Here's the sub female.
