Hi guys and gals!Very Happy Let me introduce myself. I'm Praying mantis but you can call me "Stone-Tigress". I'm from family Amorphoscelidae (Do not hesitate to correct me if I'm wrong.) and we are smaller in size. As you can see, on my example, we have very good cryptic colour and body shape. I'm about ~ 2cm long from head to bottom (Antennae doesn't count.) and yes I'm female. Males are fully winged (And can even fly! - Female discrimination again!Shocked), slender and a little longer in lenght. I'm very well adapted for living on the gray stone ground or on the gray bark tree trunks and almost invisible in those environment. I'm very natty in catching little buzzing flys even if they are still in the air! You'll see! Bye, bye, see you later. Wink
