But I dont have a camera attached to my face at all times. I fed the mantis by hand yesterday morning and kept my fingers. I also tried feeding him large nls pellets tonight with great success! I got the worlds easiest to keep mantis shrimp:hmm3grin2orange: Thats not to say he doesnt enjoy bashing some hermit crab brains out on occasion as he has thinned out my red leg population considerably from my reef tank. Compared to that reclusive Chiragra mantis I used to have this fella is Mr Congeniality. Just thought Id share,,,,,,,,,,especially to you Cliff:14:

Not all mantis are this outgoing. My first one was seldom seen even when he was healthy.peacocks are more likely to be out and about.
