    Dedicated Caresheets? (Brainstorming)

    Just a suggestion, though not sure if it's possible for the admins to do- making the care sheets alphabetized would help find people find what they're looking for a bit faster, instead of having the topics organized by date of creation. Just a little suggestion!

    Odontomantis spp. (Ant Mantis)

    I looked it up and it says medium humidity so make sure to not have too little or too much. In order to have medium humidity I would suggest instead of having a completely closed container with substrate to instead have mesh on top with substrate, therefore giving breathing space. Anyone, correct me if I am wrong.

    Odontomantis spp. (Ant Mantis)

    Popa spurca (Twig Mantis)

    Nooooooo. Not for beginners. Beginners always overspray.

    Popa spurca (Twig Mantis)

    I agree, but it's easier to under mist than over mist.

    Popa spurca (Twig Mantis)

    Easy to hand feed. Easy keeping too, bc they dont want too much humidity. On the flip side though, beginners tend to overmist and that hurts them more than most.

    Popa spurca (Twig Mantis)

    Honestly, I think this species is one of the best beginner species.

  26. Hello have ooths for sale :

  27. The worst way to wake up on your birthday: (thinking) "I wonder if the twig mantids I was mating last night ever connected?" Waiting five minutes to get out of bed, look in the cage, and the male is headless and in the female's claws. :(

    I if I hadn't waited five minutes he would have been fine and I could have separated them right away. I don't even know if they connected, but they were mounted for at least 48 hours straight.
