    I know it sounds weird. I just got some Poison Dart Frog tadpoles and need to have the available when they morph. Yesterday I received a Malaysian Orchid Mantis nymph. It really looks like a walking flower. I guess it was hungry. It ate 7 fruit flies last night. It is only half an inch. The color is pink and white. When it moves it shakes like it is blowing in the wind. I had heard of them but they are amazing to see.

    I also bought a Ghost Mantis which looks like a dead leaf. They had a similar movement. I had been waiting for weeks for the wheather to warm up.

    Would love to see pics. I like keeping odd stuff and have a few sumpless buocubes I could use.
