Amazing proportions! Muscles must be awesomely strong to operate those nightmarish pincers! I hope I never have to have a boxing match with one of these guys! : )

BYRON, IF THIS VIOLIN MANTIS WAS 5' TALL I WOULD AGREE WITH YOU, BUT BELIEVE IT OR NOT HE IS ONE OF THE MOST GENTLE ONE'S IN THE MANTIS SPECIES. BUT IF LOOKS COULD KILL HE IS DEFINITELY THE ONE TO WATCH! LES
