Mantis Monday for 1-15-07

Today's mantis is Tarachodula pantherina

This strange and exotic little mantid is native to Africa, I think.

One thing I am noticing by looking at online photo galleries is that in other countries, people are free to buy and sell exotic mantid species. There are lots of beautiful species that I have never even heard of before. I will try this year to "discover" them, and bring them to Bug Safari fame!
