    Wow breathtaking, so expressive. Keep this work up.. stunning.. we breed mantids and enjoy their company massively, you just made our day with these epic photos. More people need to see your work.
  5. All three have successfully made it to L5! They’re growing fast! I must’ve been out of the game for a while because I’m still doubting the sex. I think I have 3 females, but I’ll be able to tell on the next one!

      2 have made it successfully to L6! I caught one molting this morning which was a cool sight! Waiting on the third now! :)

  6. Last night we have 2 of the three made it to L4! Looks like I have one male and one female. I’ll have a better look when I take them out! Pretty excited!

  7. When you have fruit flies flying around your garbage and you take the opportunity to gorge your babies! #me

  8. Tried to line up the molts since they all got to L2 about three days apart from one another, but proud to say that one molted to L3 Tuesday night and the other two molted last night to L3 successfully!☺️

  9. Officially have 3 L2 baby orchids! Excited for their growth! Eating well and already exhibiting adult like behavior.

  10. One of my L2 orchids caught and ate a common clothes moth and I am IMpressed! It was not a small moth! Wow!

  11. 2 of the 3 orchids have successfully molted to L2! It’s interesting to see how they drop the red and black! Very happy!

  12. Hey I was trying to contact you about some mantids, but it said I wasn’t able to message you. Could you message me?

  13. Orchids are all settled in and ate their first fruit fly!!

  14. Excited to have mantids again!! Hopefully this time around will be solid! #orchids

  15. Really excited to be raising mantids again! Eagerly waiting for them to come! 

  16. Has anyone uses the Panasonic LUMIX FX80 for macro shots?
  17. Can someone create a care sheet for Rhombodera Megaera?? That would be much appreciated!!
  18. So, with Mantis Keepers temporarily disabled, who.else is back in here jonesing? 🤣

  19. So I’ve had an Olympus e-510 for a few years and haven’t used it. Is this a decent camera for macro pics? It’s a 10 megapixel camera. Also any recommendations for lighting
  20. my L3 Cat eye did it for the first time when in their container and briefly moved to another room, which had quite a draft so I dont blame them. The coldness is terrifying.
  21. "Development Rate of growth and factors involved: Even though they are a tropical species, room temperature of 72 F (22 C) degrees does not seem to slow their growth (5 months); however, higher temperatures will likely speed it up. " Hmmm... I don't think Acromantis japonica is tropical. Technically I think they are "subtropical", which means they live in climates that have freezes during winter. Here in Daejeon, South Korea, where I am from it is a temperate climate (I haven't seen any Acromantis when I was there in South Korea, so they might not range as far north as Daejeon.): Google search "Daejeon Climate": Daily High/Low January 38° / 18°3 days February 43° / 22°3 days March 54° / 31°7 days April 67° / 42°8 days May 76° / 52°7 days June 82° / 63°8 days July 86° / 71°16 days August 86° / 71°15 days September 79° / 59°10 days October 69° / 45°4 days November 55° / 33°7 days December 43° / 22°6 days
  22. The tenodera sinensis ootheca arrived on January 04, 2021. Since this is my first ootheca of research, this group will be labeled The Satusovum, which in Latin translates to "start egg".
  23. Arrived here on Feb 2nd as an L2. Name is Bambie with an ie. Real curious and sweet.
  24. Really missing taking care of some mantids! Hopefully soon I can get back into it!

      I cant imagine taking a break!

    2. minomantis


      I know! I really only take a break because I love catching bugs from outside and allowing my mantids to have some moments outside. It’s apart of my experience when raising mantids lol!

  25. nice! is that my leg?
