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

Oh wow, never realized they could that much damage. There have been times when my mantds have been climbing on my

hands and they have used their forearms on a steep climb and it's shockingly sharp. But when you think about it, if you're

catching small mammals, lizards, and crazy insects, you have to stop them somehow! lol. hope it gets better mate.
