Do you happen to have a measurement for this?

 
-
Yep. It was half a centemeter....give or take a mm.

 
The egg case?
Both the individual mantis and the egg case were that size?

 
-
Yep. Again... give or take a mm or 2. I didn't measure them and I'm going by memory, but the baby mantis were almost the same length as the egg case.
