For those of you that have been following, I've had a Mantis living with Thomas basically since I've got him. The two have left each other alone. Now that Thomas is getting older and less interested in eating things and the Mantis is getting bigger it seems he's getting bolder too, I was finally able to snap some pics of him! He actually came out and checked me out, my jaw dropped! He's a little bigger than I thought, about 3", his appendages are multi-colored, and his body is a deep red, like a blood shrimp, he looks awesome! At least I will have something to help me get over Thomas when he passes :sad: :

Thanks for posting these pics of Thomas's little companion!
He certainly stayed hidden well for a long time.
