Mismolted Female Hierodula Majuscula


This is my female, Martina, who mismolted.

She has a bent leg, a bend in her thorax, and I had to amputate her right arm due to the mismolt which was hindering her walking.

Sorry about the quality.

My experience is that mismolts are the most amazing mantis. One of my favorite was a fusca grl who mismolted so bad that I had to hand feed her and give her water daily. She was so curious about everything and ended up being my husbands favorite. She died a month or so ago. I loved her...

I think so too idologrl, all the time I have spent bonding with her (cleaning, feeding and helping her) has shown me a completely different, innocent side of the mantis and brings out so much personality in her. I feel a connection with her as she would not be alive without me and I would not be happy without her. Sorry for your loss, I really understand what it must be like to lose that special one that you care so much for.
