Nice, how long is he? He looks a little larger than others I have seen.

I didn`t take any measurements with this mantis but the cap is a standard size cap. No doubt longer than most I have ever seen in this area.

How old is it? It's got to be getting up there by the looks of him. I am actually kind of jealous.

Not sure of the age but rather healthy, good insects are extremely beneficial, a healthy area is beneficial.
The trees in the background of first photo`s was the last place I observed this mantis.
