    Mantids. EVERYTHING MANTIS! Getting into spiders (Tarantulas, jumping spiders, etc.) and tree frogs. My church and youth group, math, science, etc. are also very important to me.

About Me

I am in ninth grade, and I am homeschooled by my mom at home. I have two sisters and two brothers, and I am the oldest kid. I love math and science, and school is fun for me. 

I have loved mantids ever since the day when we were camping (we camp all summer in Maryland) and a little green thing scuttled across the dinner table. I caught it, and eventually figured out that it was a little Chinese mantis. I named her Flip, and I had her all summer until she died from a mismolt. That winter, I found out more about mantids, and I found out that there were actually exotic mantids. The next summer, I was just walking along a path, and I found this bush on the side of the road that housed a small colony of Tenodera sinensis. I caught and kept several of them over the summer, and I grew to love mantids even more. It was this fall when I finally bought my first exotic mantids from DeShawn. I have grown in my mantis love and knowledge, and I now consider myself to be an experienced mantis keeper.  

I am a saved Christian, and a large part of my life is my church and youth group. 

I love my life, friends, and mantids, and I could not have been happier when I found out that there was actually a whole forum dedicated to mantids!
