:squee:  PURPLE BABY EMPUSA!!!  SO FREAK'N CUTE!!!  :iconeeeeeplz:

If I ever get a tattoo it'll be an actual size chubby pink baby orchid mantis or a baby leopard gecko clinging to my upper arm and looking at you over its shoulder.  :love:

Several years ago I had two Adorable baby flower mantids, like diabetic coma sweet, but I went on a 2 week road trip and my parents failed to follow the feeding instructions I gave them.  Poor little guys starved to death looking for flying insects at the top while my parents were just throwing crickets in to scurry about the bottom.  I told them specifically that they needed to be hand fed with the tweezers.

Wow, that's a weird looking bug! Very pretty color, though. Props for getting close enough to snap a decent shot--I think I'd give him a wide berth. XD

Nicely done!
