Mantis religiosa - part 3

In this post I will show pictures of my female Mantis.
Females are much larger and heavier than males.
And they are aggressive.

Female praying mantises can eat their young if they did not have time to hide after hatching from the egg.

Mantis females can attack not only insects of the same size, but also larger ones than themselves.

And between females there are frequent cases of cannibalism.

Males, on the other hand, feed on fairly small insects.

The photos I were taken with a Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70L tablet
See how my beauty looks at me? :-)

@curie Thank you very much for your support!

очень понравились фото. с этими лепешками неопределенно красноватого цвета, на заднем плане - убойное сочетание!

спасибо большое!
Эти лепешки иногда становятся почти полностью неопределенного красного цвета или зелено-серого.
А еще красиво цветут, жаль что еще не все бутоны раскрылись
вот что стало с моими лепешками после града :-(

ой, какие они нежные! или град был пронзительный?
мне очень жаль. выглядит ужасно, как нашествие вредителей ...

каланхое - прелестнейшее, карточки одна другой лучше, даже и без крутой камеры. природа - отличный художник!

Спасибо, приятно :-)

Град был крупный.
Для сравнения, листья этой каланхое 20 см.

Wow! What a big guy!! A real alien from Mars. 😂😂

The girl was offended :-), since she is not a boy, but a girl :-))
And she will grow up, later I will expose her photo in her final size :-)
