Peacock mantis pairs weapons and them as an entree.

I got these guys last year and put them together in their own tank.
They got on real well, though when I put in a crab for food they would sort of fight over them, but no damage.
The larger one with its ivory club did break my photo bowl I put life into to takes pics of them.
The female was near on 9 inch and the guy was a bit bigger.
These pics firstly show them humanly put to sleep, then ready for cooking for 1 minute once the saltwater is at the boil, then cooked and then with the mornay sauce then pics of their weapons.
They are good eating!

As you can see their weapons are a little different to each others.

weapons retracted, when they use these they are extended so fast it boils the water around them.
