I have found that while most juvenile O's are mostly tan or dusky colored, some are bright orange like Ruby here and also The King. Fantastic colors. At about 13 cm, males turn bright green while females usually turn more olive. Unfortunately, all my mantis' have dulled some since I got them. I'm still experimenting with lighting, environment color and burrow to maintain those beautiful bright colors.
