They are both mine. There's a seller on Ebay I've come to know and she breeds them herself and their livefood too.
The second one I'm unsure about as it's too early to tell what sex it is, so the colouring will be different depending on the sex, so will have to wait and see on that one. The orchid is a girl so she'll grow quite big as the females are larger than the males.
I actually like the second one more. It's been on my fingers today just looking round, cute little bugger, lol.
I'm leaning towards getting a tarantula. There's someone I know that's got a red-kneed that just had a swarm of spiderlings, so I'm wanted one of her babies. Jay's not too impressed though but he's okay with me having one if I keep it away from him, haha!

They are on flightless fruit flies at the moment, and will move up to larger flies once older. You can feed crickets but not those caught in the wild as they can carry bacteria harmful to the mantises. I usually feed them home raised crickets, gut loaded with fresh greens and calcium as I would the reptiles.
