Pregnant Mantis

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. I now know who to blame when our house is full of baby mantises (is that the correct plural?) next spring! We found her while chopping through our immense garden of weeds (AKA the front yard). I can’t say for certain that is with children, but usually when we look at a mantis the lower end is not so… full.

  1. Very interesting photo. Results later may be interesting too.

  2. I recently picked up a mantis in my living room, but it’s not green. It’s actually a medium brown color. I’m assuming that it’s a she, because her bottom got very large. She eats like a pig, the reason that I’m looking around on these websites is because I wasn’t sure that she was a she. So, I was curious to see if she was, also I was a little concerned that her stomach got so large, I wasn’t sure if I was just over feeding her, or if there was something else wrong.
