Here is a male mantis I found last week in central Utah. I believe he is a M religiosa

I want that enclosure now lol! That'd make a perfect Idolomantis diabolica enclosure.

I wanted to use something more decorative for his cage, but I didn't have anything good. My mom picked this up for me (she knew what I was looking for) at a thrift store I think.

Really beautiful, I've ended up with a pair of M. Religiosa and am enjoying their antics. They're housed separately, with a mating attempt planned for this weekend. Wonderful enclosure, he's one lucky mantis!
