Wow that's actually a mantis, not just a stick insect? I've never seen one camoflaged like that before.

Thanks. That looks amazing. As i glanced passed the new posts i though it was a stick. I like mantis. If i ever build a green house i want to keep a few of them inside it.

Yep, it's a mantis. In the first picture you can zoom in and see the mantis head and folded mantis arms.
