Update on my babies!
My Ghost Mantis might be close to it’s last molt, and I guess because I keep his habitat humid, with his latest molt he went a little green :) super excited to see what happens to him!
The Indian Flower Mantis has become a little aggressive, and almost too fast and jumpy for me to even take out of it’s habitat… nevertheless he’s turning pretty colors and getting big and plump :)
Anyone wanna help me figure out the gender of these guys/name them? Or is it still too early to sex them?
It is not too early to sex them! I believe your ghost mantis is a male. It’s very easy to tell by looking at the “crown/hat” in this species. As for the Indian flower, it’s a little more difficult to tell from the front, based on the antennae I’m leaning towards male as well, but if you upload a clear image of the back of their abdomen I can attempt to be a little more accurate for you. Hope this was helpful!
