  1. What do baby Sibylla pretiosa eat?  I tried these once and failed because they wouldn't eat FFs.


  2. Hi there! I really enjoy your YouTube for starters!! 

    I have a question for you because you seem to have the most info I can find about Euchomenella heteroptera

    i was wondering if you could give me any pointers on how to sex them? I have 3 & all with small wings but I'm not sure if I have male or female 



  3. um dude i heard you were interested in oxyopsis gracilis ;well a friend of mine has oxyopsis peruviana

  4. I wrote you an inquiry about Giant Asian ooth if still available, but I must not have done it correctly since I didn't get a reply. Do you still have that available??
    Thank you,


  5. Awesome cat! I just got into this hobby and wanted an orchid mantis, i saw Precarious's post for orchid nymphs for sale. I left a message and Precarious responded swiftly. We worked out the details and i then received a package with a beautiful healthy nymph! Very fast, reliable, and knowledgeable. Looking forward to getting to learn alot more about the hobby! Thank you very much!! :P

  6. Hi, do you currently have any Ghots for sale? Thanks

  9. Hi! I was wondering what species you're currently breeding. I would like to order from you in the future.

  10. Love your videos and pictures! It's always to a treat when I see that you've presented a new work to the "public"! Anxiously awaiting your next post! :)

      Hey Michiganmantis guy recommended me to you, I was just wondering if you have any mantids or oothecas you can sell.

  11. Yeah, I lucked out and got the MT-24EX as an open box sale on Ebay at the price of the MR-14EX TTL Macro Ring Lite Flash. It is a big investment and I fought tooth and nail to avoid blowing that money but I am so glad I did, and I'm glad I did it early on so I didn't waste too much time trying to work around not having what I really needed. I couldn't tell you how good any of those cheaper ones are, but you get what you pay for. Read through the reviews and make your best judgment. I would avoid the Vivitar because it only got 2 stars. The way I looked at it is I could blow $80-$150 on one I will soon outgrow or use that toward something more lasting. I have no regrets. The MT-24EX is amazingly versatile. But I understand you have to prove to yourself you will be a worthy owner. That's how I felt. It's an investment in your own abilities and you've got to see if that makes sense.
  12. Those are good choices. I use the T2i. That's a crazy deal on the T4i. $100 less than at B&H and they usually have the best deals. You should hit them up for research. Lots of serious user feedback on gear and the staff can answer questions. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/194451-USA/Canon_4657A006_100mm_f_2_8_USM_Macro.html You'll always hear photographers pushing certain brands but for macro Canon really has everyone beat. The 100mm is great and the MP-E 65mm is unique to everything else out there. I have no opinion on most other gear because I only know what I use myself but if you start looking at macro images online you will begin to notice that all the best ones were shot using Canon gear. You should start thinking about how you will light your shots too. I have the Canon MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite Flash. Both Canon macro flashes are very good from what I've heard. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=canon+macro+flash&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=
