Beautiful specimens! The BugZoo here had one, but she died and none of her eggs hatched. :(

But fortunately we're rearing some P. siccifolium that will hopefully be nearly as large.

amazing creatures, never seen them before. Must be the best camouflaged insects in existence.

Well it depends on what you think classifys as the best camouflage. Their are some spiders that look like ants, and other insects too!

But either way yes Beautiful specimen!

Really? That's interesting, they are a very "iconic" insect, I've always seen them on the covers of books, in artwork, toys, etc.
