Nice find. I've kept many different species of mantis over the years and O.s. (peacocks) are my favorite.

A Beautiful place!
Congrats Warr, that's a beauty ;)

Always wondered, can you pick them up or touch them? Are they finger and hand safe? :p

Nope if it smacks you, will split your fingers.

It has the same power as a 2.2 bullet

Remember uses these clubs to crack mussels, clams and crabs open.
