Wait, you want a praying mantis like the insect or you want a Mantis shrimp, the awsomesauce destroyer of the that's cuter then piles of puppies.

I miss you Googly the destroyer. He was a lover AND a fighter.

I'll be turning my garden this weekend for winter crops. I sometimes find one or two praying mantis. Would you want one of these if I find one?

Pardon me while i wipe a tear away "RIP" Googly

Yes an Insect praying mantis I've always had a love for them had one that lived in my house doe 2 months once he'd eat the huge black ants that cruise the back patio sadly one day after two months of always being there he was gone.

They come in all shapes and sizes and thecolors are epic.

Weyrman that is a killer offer but i'm heading out of state on the 22nd and wont be back until the 12th so no one could care for him properly. But if you do find one if not to much trouble snap a cell phone pic and text it to me ?

They are the coolest bug! I'm always rescuing them from my carport, mostly babies.
They are the best bug for gardens!
