Hey you emailed me,your 12 right?I'm 13,I got my mantis @ a place called Pets Unlimited Gonodactylus Chiragra for 18.99 with tax it is around 20.00.they don't have any now,I got the last one:D but they can order one if you call them Monday.Their # is:

I know where to get them. I work at a place called Marien Fish on Johnson ferry they can order them in. Im just looking for the best kind ( most active).
Hey MantisShrimp, How big is your Chiragra? I've been looking for that species. Did you order that species specifically, or did they just happen to get that type? What's yours like?
Got the Chiragra @ LFS its 4 inches long,they just had it.....don't know if that's the only kind they get maybe they get random mantis species...Can only get 1 @ a time though LOL.
