      Male ghosts often look like that. Color can't be passed down through genetics that I know of. I think that color is pretty much random in the individuals.

      No problem! I've never seen a female ghost with green wings before. It makes her stand out!

  3. I’ve been gone for a minute but I’m excited to share, I totally sold out of my Chinese mantid hatch! The best part was how many went to classrooms 👍 my local school district bought up most of them! Today we FINALLY had a male Spiny Flower molt into adulthood (my purchased nymph males turned out to be females) and we’re very excited to pair him with Latte....as soon as we find her lol she’s MIA in the house but she’ll fly to one of our shoulders if she gets too thirsty or hungry. Poor Fabio (the adult male spiny) has too many girlfriends 🤞 Leafy (female ghost mantis) molted into adulthood while I was gone too but her boyfriend is woefully behind....wish he would hurry up already lol Leafy likes to leave her plant and hang under the piano these days lol Happy (adult female spiny flower) prefers Fortnite music 😂. Lastly, we lost Buggy (adult female spiny) she was getting older but not elderly yet...I think she got too hot it was over 90 outside the day we lost her and we don’t have AC it was definitely stuffy in the house. I’m looking forward to catching up on everyone’s posts until I can get a hatch out of these spinys👍

  17. Just ordered 5 more mantids; one for my nephew (the Chinese mantis I got him died from the thunder dome style shipping method) the spiny flower he originally requested is back in stock at my preferred place plus a couple more ghost mantis because my 5 year old just loves them. Well also keep 2 more nymph spinys besides the one that will be swapped for Spots. Spots is gonna leave with my nephew this weekend since the order won’t arrive in time BUT STILL lol Birthday crises averted! Winning? I think so lol

      I can see this happening. My rhombo was taking three foot leaps to get away from me today and nearly ended up underfoot. He needed a bit of honey on an injured eye and he wasn't having it. I won in the end.

      But the point is they can surprise you with their travel sometimes. EVEN when you're engaged in their handling.

      If they were shipped communally, id say someone did ye' wrong.

      Yea I’m a little peeved and I’m not shipping the buggy corpse back for credit either I’ll perfect my burnout/casting temps with them instead....won’t be pretty when finished (these guys are mangled) but it’ll be informative and less wasteful than having another pair shipped out together 

  21. My nephew’s birthday mantis; the snow storm survivor
