Mantises

I have seen 3 different mantises in my front yard.

This one is the smallest.
I think this mint mantis is the largest but it's hard to say.
This one seems to get around a bit. I guess you can tell by the shape which one is largest. I tried to show them each at about the same size.

I didn't realize there were different types of Mantis. I only thought there was on type and they just changed color?

these guys are siblings. their living conditions affect how they grow. seems like the mint pot is a best place for these mantises.
