I was hoping to maybe finally get my Idolomantis to do a threat pose by putting her in front of my dog, but she just wanted to crawl up on him....with great hesitancy. First she started to crawl on his foot and then backed off, then she stood there and did a couple of quick jabs at my dog's ear to test the water before going for it, which would have made a cool video, as high as she made his ear flip up. I probably would have ended up with a great shot if I let it continue, but as obedient as my dog is, I still just couldn't imagine him letting her crawl up on him via the ear without at least a paw swipe and I couldn't risk it just yet....way too much time involved raising this most difficult species and way too few good pics of her.
