    Mantids. EVERYTHING MANTIS! Getting into spiders (Tarantulas, jumping spiders, etc.) and tree frogs. My church and youth group, math, science, etc. are also very important to me.

  1. 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.

    Dedicated Caresheets? (Brainstorming)

    Not enough people keep them. I'm not sure of anyone who would qualify to write a care sheet on this species. - MantisGirl13

  5. I love my parents. I was about to purchase 500 mealworms as feeders for my mantids and lizards, and when I asked my mom for her PayPal password so I could buy them, she looked at my dad and told me to look in the back of the fridge. Apperantly they had been planning to give me 200 mealworms for Christmas, but because I needed them, they gave them to me early. Lol

    A few years ago, I wouldn't have liked finding mealworms in my stocking, but now... lol

  8. Ugh. I'm having really bad luck right now. Right before my male unicorn molts to adult, he dies suddenly. I have an adult female waiting for him too! 

    Then, right before I have an adult male ghost, all of my females die. My budwing ooth seems to be infertile, and my young nymphs are dropping quickly. I have no clue what's going on here, but it's not good at all.

  9. I was planning to mate my green female ghost this afternoon, but I got back from grocery shopping and she had laid me a nice big infertile ooth.

    So I decided to see if my male would be interested in my big dark female. Sure enough, after three hours of fooling around on her back, Pumpkin the male decided to make the connection!!!!!

    This is the first ghost mating of the season for me, but not the last! I have three other females waiting for their turn.

      Thanks! It's kind of bittersweet because the female decided she was hungry and took it out on the male. I'm pretty sure it was successful, but now I have to wait for my other subadult males to mature before I can mate my other girls. And anyone who's kept ghosts knows how painfully slow the males mature!

      Lucky. I have just one each illudens and paradoxa females.

      By old identification standards, I was informed illudens and paradoxa are synonyms. Whatevz. Ill keep them separate. 

      Whole whack of males tho. Two subs that just dont wanna molt too. 🙄

    4. MantisGirl13

      MantisGirl13

      I don't believe that illudens and paradoxa are synonyms because the female's crown looks so different.

  10. I go away for a few days and leave most of the mantids behind. I had only one casualty, but it was the most devastating one. My female orchid. I now have no orchids and I guess I'll have to start from scratch again with this species as older nymphs are too expensive for me. It's a shame.

  11. I just spent the last hour feeding fruit flies to almost fifty, soon to be more, nymphs of several different species. On top of that, I'm sick. Fun day! (Not)

    I'm pooped.

      Sometimes I think having so many mantises was a bad choice. 

      Having said that, there's another 15 coming. 😖

      And what are you planning on doing with that little army?

  12. Ugh. My last S. pretiosa nymph died, and to make things worse, my only male orchid died from what looks to be an infection. My female is not quite mature yet, and neither was the male, but I was hoping to mate in a few weeks! Bad day.

    That's cute! And it's ok if they get slightly set from misting, just not 'swimming' in any volume of water. - MantisGirl13
  15. I guess your female found it 'Humorous' to reject the male! I hope you have success tomorrow. - MantisGirl13
