  3. Lo and behold... when I looked in on the bug room this morning, I got a big surprise! After checking all the mantids, I went over to the other shelves to check the ooths. Whoooa!!! Lots of tiny T. sinensis babies all zinging around in the large container! I had 2 ooths in there incubating... one collected from the wild in November, and one of four that my wild caught Chinese female had laid in captivity on 10/19/2008. I never did find her a mate, so I was unsure if she was fertile or not. She obviously was... the evidence was hanging from this first-laid, square-cornered ooth. The babies had all hatched during the night, but the little mass of empty stringy things were hanging out of it. And I'd estimate around 150 little babies were born. That ooth was so funny looking. She'd laid it at the top inside corner of the lid of her Critter Keeper. In addition to the beveled square corner, it also had three evenly spaced, perpendicular raised protrusions on it where the ooth material had squeezed out through the ventilation slots. Plus it was attached to a stick, thus looking like a really strange lollipop after I removed it from the container. Her funny shaped ooth after hatching Ms. Weird eyes, their mother, died only three days ago. I kept thinking if she could have held on just a few more days, she could have seen her babies (thinking in human terms of course, not that she would have known, realized the babies were hers, or cared had she lived). Just me and my sentimentality... Here's their mother, Ms. Weird Eyes... I went in to check on them this afternoon and got another little shock. When I walked into the room, about 10 of the little boogers were up on top, on the outside of their enclosure which was sitting on the bed... standing there looking at me! "Look, Mom... na-na-na-na-na... we got out! Yeeeeehaaaaaw!!!" And when I grabbed a new, empty ff culture container to contain them in, it was their signal to start the rodeo... hopping off the container and onto the bed, running around to the back side, and jumping back out of the container once I'd put them in there. One brave little soul leaped off the bed and on to the carpet trying to make his getaway. I finally corralled them all into the ff container, crashed the lid on, and left them in there for now. NO WAY was I opening up any lid, door, or hole of that Critter Keeper right now... or before I absolutely have to! Omg, I can just imagine the circus with all these little guys. About a dozen more escapees were happily perched on top of the lid, and around their container again later when I checked on them before going to bed. After some more funny business from them, and another performance worthy of America's Funniest Home Videos from me, I finally got them all contained in another empty ff culture. Must figure out what little cranny they are getting through. I can't be having the little guys out roaming loose all over the bug room. So I think I'm going to TRY to transfer them all to a net cage (12x12x12) tomorrow. I think I'll put them in the one their mother occupied so very recently. Rest in peace, my girl... your babies are beautiful! The large modified Critter Keeper enclosure (before hatching). Ooth that hatched is the one on the right. Update on current species: Stagmomantis carolina - 1 adult female, 9 ooths (1 incubating, 8 in diapause) Tenodera sinensis - ??? (lots!) L1 nymphs, 5 ooths (1 incubating, 4 in diapause) Rhombodera sp. - 1 nymph (L4) Hierodula membranacea - 2 nymphs (L5) Phyllocrania paradoxa - 1 nymph (L3 or L4), 1 ooth Phyllovates chlorophaea - 15 nymphs (L3), 1 ooth Brunneria borealis - 1 ooth Statilia parva - approx. 25-30 nymphs (L2) Pseudoharpax virescen - 2 ooths Blepharopsis mendica - 8 nymphs (L2) Creobroter gemmatus - 7 nymphs (L1) Cilnia humeralis - 11 nympha (L1)

    Lord Ess (M) and Goliath (F) mating

    From the album: Tenodera sinensis

    A few days later and he mated with Goliath! Such skills he has! Lol. He mated with her for about 6 hours. Again jumped off and was fine.So now I have 2 fertile females. Goliath is nearly 4" so her female babies should end up being around the same size.

    From the album: Tenodera sinensis

    Finally, a male that knows what he's doing! He mated with her for quite a while. I believe it was 7 hours. He jumped off and was fine. He's a PRO!

    I caught this wild female about 1 1/2 weeks ago. She is crazy. She's a wild, wild beast. She was already an adult when I'd found her. I was out collecting bugs for my other mantids, some food, and saw her in the middle of the patch of flowers, where all the bees were. She was stiff as a board and was sticking her arms out straight in front of her, trying to be a stick. I loved her colors so I took her home and released a different female (Tenosa), who had just reached adulthood.

    I was feeding all my mantids maggots and my Tenodera sinensis adult female Cheech accidentally pinched me instead, and it hurt more than usual, it pierced through my skin, its never before gone all the way through. Pretty impressive lol. But anyways it swelled up and got itchy and began to sting, look at the reaction i had. has anyone ever had a reaction like that when pinched by their mantid? It felt kind of like a bee sting. Its still swollen to this moment. Maybe she got maggotty gutness in my finger. I kind of want to laugh because im so impressed that she was able to do this to me. LOL

    From the album: Tenodera sinensis

    I let my dad name this one when she was L1. He named her "Curious George" because she was curious-looking. LOL. Now that I've sexed her, I've decided her first name is "Curious" and her last name is "George". xP
