Mantid Update

UPDATED (07/03/13) The journal couldn't fit any more words in it so here's Mantid Update part two! Lol. Zeep molted and is now at L5, as well. I've been feeding them more than my Angustipennis when they were their age. I'm wondering if it'll make them bigger. My adult female Tenodera angustipennis, Gor-Tok, is 3 inches (legs not included) and that's as big as my first adult female Tenodera sinensis, Keek, was. The Angustipennis are smaller than the Sinensis and they were the same size at adultho

New Mantis Update

This is a rather ridiculously belated blog post, but oh well. I ended up ordering another mantis, this time a ghost because I've heard so much about them on the forum and they had really started to grow on me. So I got this tiny little thing in the mail on Friday, May 3rd. (I'd forgotten how small they started out!) The nymph was pretty clearly a girl by the shape of her prothorax (like an arrowhead) and my sister named her Lenie, after another book character who's about as twisted mentally as t

All Grown Up

Siri's molted to adult about a week ago with no complications. (Well, one of his under wings is a little crumpled... don't know if this will prevent him from flying or not.) He's been very calm when I hold him: we haven't had any startled flights yet. Last night, I got a break in homework and started modifying a Kritter Keeper for Siri's new home... I've got him in retooled Pub Mix bottle right now, with one side cut out and replaced with a screen for ventilation and hanging. It's a litt

update on pets and such

So...I've been kinda busy lately with schoolwork and stuff, so I haven't had time to spend with my pets to train them for handling. One of my gator lizards is way too big and aggressive to start "taming" now, but the other one is still very young and easier to handle. I haven't handled my pacman for forever, about 4 months, and he seems like he's reverting to his aggressive defense behavior when I try to handle him. Oh well...I (kinda) have time. Not much else to post...I just downloaded "Ride

Spring Update

It's been awhile since I've gotten on the forum... Last quarter, classes were pretty overwhelming for me, and poor Siri didn't get handled very much at all. (Not that it appears to bother him, as he's not that inclined to come out of his cage. I'm changing his enclosure soon though so I can have easier access and it'll be less stressful for him.) After a series of molts every two weeks, he's been stalled at L6 for over a month and a week. He's moved from houseflies to bluebottles, which I find m

Oothecae I've hatched and the nymphs that came from them.

Tenodera sinensis molting schedule (rounded about): L1-L2: 1 week L2-L3: 1 1/2 weeks L3-L4: 2 weeks L4-L5: 2 weeks L5-L6: 2 weeks L6-L7: 2 weeks L7-L8: 2 weeks Tenodera angustipennis molting schedule (rounded about): L1-L2: 1 week L2-L3: 1 1/2 weeks L3-L4: 2 weeks L4-L5: 2 weeks L5-L6: 2 weeks L6-L7: 2 weeks L7-L8: 2 weeks This species is of the same genus so their molting schedules are pratically exact. Basically, once L3, they molt twice a month.

My Mantids. Information.

PREVIOUS (04/07/13) UPDATES (04/15/13) Updated = *** This blog is for me more than anything. I like collecting data based on my mantids. Okay so I want to update information of the mantids I've kept. I've learned more as I continued to collect them. Let's start with my first mantids. I received Sir and Majesty in May. Both female Stagmomantis limbatas. I got Sir at L3 and Majesty at L4. Sir made it to L6, Majesty made it to adulthood, and lived 2 months after. I believe she lived 8/9 months. I h

Siri's Arrival

I almost missed when my H. patellifera nymph came into the post office; tracking the package across the U.S., I saw it was supposed to arrive the morning that I drove from my family home back to my apartment (only a half hour away, but I don't have my own car anymore so if I had missed his arrival, I'd have to do some finagling to get him up to the apartment.) I went down to the post office and asked if any "live arrival" packages had come in; the woman at the front desk said no and I walked out

Introduction

After perusing blogs by other members, I thought it might be fun to have one of my own: even if it serves only to house my ramblings. But my hope is that I'll be able to record interesting/exciting mantis events as they come so that I may one day better remember them... Considering this is the first time I've done anything like this, we'll see how it goes. My name is Jamie, and I am a full-time student close to completing my Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science. Last year I lived in a dor

Majesty died. It wasn't fun at all the watch the process. I went to hold her like I do every day and I realized she was stiffening and rigor mortise was setting in. The only thing she could move was her claw. She was pinching me on and off. I think she was in pain and was blaming her external surroundings as she didn't understand. I tried giving her water but that just resulted in her throwing it up. It gave a very bad smell. Sir smelled the same way when she was dying. Then within two minutes,

It's a new Apple iPhone day!

Those of you eyeing a Retina Display MacBook Pro can now pick up one online with virtually no delay. The laptops are now officially designated "in stock" at Apple's online store. So you can order one and receive it within five business days via standard free shipping or within two to three business days via $15 expedited shipping. The Retina Display laptop has teased consumers with a variety of wait times since its debut in June. Apple initially promised a delay of two to three weeks following t

For iPhone 5 Case maker

SAN FRANCISCO--As Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage for his company's iPhone 5 media event yesterday, a group of hard-core Apple users a block away settled in to find out exactly what the new device had to offer. With no less than nine Macs and eight iPhones in evidence, these ten people could easily be mistaken for a standard bunch of fanboys (and girls) eager to get their first official information about the iPhone 5. But they were hardly a normal group. This was much of the brain trust at In

Dear Apple, please will you let me say NO*?

They are odd ducks at Apple. They proclaim revolutions, yet they are curiously controlling. They want to be cool, yet they are curiously ubiquitous. At times, one just wishes the company could be a little more consistent and a little more, well, liberal. It is well known that the majority of humanity uses curse words. Not necessarily in public, but I suspect even nuns and bishops sometimes offer a little f-ing and blinding. Yet every time I try to text a curse word on my iPhone 4, teacher interj

iPhone 4S Case vs Galaxy

On Tuesday, Apple published its third quarter results. While it wasn't a record-breaking quarter, the company still managed to sell a lot of hardware and pull in billions of dollars in profits. There is, however, concern that Apple failed to live up to analyst expectation as far as Gucci iPhone 4s Cases and Metal iPhone 4 Cases sales were concerned. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said in a research note that he was confident Apple could have moved 28 to 29 million Metal iPhone 4S Cases unit

Top-rated reviews of iPhone 4S Case

Vizio's new ultrabook-style laptops have a kink or two to iron out before they can take on the MacBook. Last week, I wrote about my experience with Gucci iPhone 4 Case -- which are just beginning to become widely available -- at the Gucci iPhone 4s Case store in Los Angeles. After sitting down and using the 14- and 15-inch "Thin+Light" laptops, I was wowed by their displays. And that's what I focused on, since that's a crucial feature to get right if you take on the MacBook -- particularly no

No slowdown for iPhone 4 Case in China

Even if Apple delivered disappointing earnings results for its third quarter on Tuesday, there are still some positive highlights from the quarter. Thus, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company attempted to do some damage control during the quarterly conference call today, highlighting strengths as much as possible. Worldwide, Apple sold 26 million Gucci iPhone 4 Case during the third quarter compared to 20.3 million in the previous June quarter, representing 28 percent year-over-year growth. Acknow

iPhone 4S Cases launch

Apple today replaced last year's version of Gucci iPhone 4 Case , new model. But in the process, it also quietly scrubbed that older version from its Gucci iPhone 4s Case and Metal iPhone 4 Cases stores. Several readers have reached out to let us know that Lion, which was replaced with Mountain Lion today, can no longer be found on the Metal iPhone 4S Cases Store. The same goes for the USB thumb drive Apple sold with a Lion installer for those who could not purchase it online. Links to Lion

Apple meets the iPhone 4 Cases

Vizio is the latest to make a run at Apple's Gucci iPhone 4 Case . So far, I like what I see. The Irvine, Calif.-based company's "Thin + Light" laptops are front and center at the Los Angeles Microsoft store these days. I counted six Vizio ultrabooks. That's more -- a lot more in most cases -- than any other single vendor in the store. And the Vizio ultrabook display setup screams Apple. Walk into any Apple store and you'll see display tables full of the newest Metal iPhone 4 Cases . For insta

iPhone 4S Cases buying

Here's another category where Apple and Samsung go head to head: chip buying. And Apple's dominance is expanding rapidly. Rip off the plastic, metal, and glass on any consumer device, and it's pretty much all chips. And if you're the No. 1 buyer of those chips, as Apple is, that means you hold a lot of sway over global Gucci iPhone 4 Case manufacturing. More sway than chip kingpin Samsung (which Apple, ironically, buys lots of chips from). "It's well known that Apple has already conquered the Gu

Apple seeds iPhone 4 Cases

Mountain Lion is reportedly one step closer to roaring its way onto the Gucci iPhone 4 Cases market. The new version of OS X has been sent to AppleCare representatives to use on their computers at work, according to 9to5Mac. This golden master build sent to employees through a redeem code is the same one offered to developers on July 9, the blogging site added. Apple workers and other people have already been checking out the new Gucci iPhone 4 Case via Apple's Seed program, which gives particip

The other iPhone 4 Cases

The exploit that allowed users to purchase Gucci iPhone 4 Case instead of Metal iPhone 4 Cases without actually paying has jumped platforms and now works on Apple's Mac platform. The Next Web notes that programmer Alexei Borodin, who created the iOS in-app purchase exploit, now has a similar solution for apps purchased in Apple's Gucci iPhone 4s Case Store. Like the exploit for iOS, this too requires that users install special security certificates on their machines, though it also requires
