New ghost mantis

Got a delivery from bugsincyberspace today - a delightful little ghost mantis. I'm not entirely certain yet, but I think it's a male. He chowed down on a fruit fly tonight, and there's another one in his enclosure in case he wants a snack. His abdomen puffed up immediately after he ate the fruit fly, which was weird and awesome to watch.

 

I'll take more pictures as he gets bigger, but here's one for now. He's so tiny even my macro lens had a hard time focusing on him!
