MOLTS, LARVAL STAGES, HYBRIDS

I found information online that further explains molts.

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

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

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,
