Flower Mantis

Flower Mantis (10/17)



  1. Weather cooperated enough to let the girls out for flights. Honey bees are wintering over well and everyone's happy. :)

  2. That one ootheca from the store never hatched, and all mantids are long since gone.

  3. The cactus didn't bother him? lol
  4. Haven't updated in a while... Mantids are doing well. :) I'm busy!

  5. Sub-adult female molted this morning. Now have two lovely M Religiosa ladies in their finest draperies.

      Congratulations! (And congratulations on getting your parents to let you have more than one) :D I just caught a female M religiosa last night! I still haven't named her. Have you named yours?

  6. Nice picture! It's easy to see the colors of the mantis with the subdued color of the purple background. I also like the texture of the paper.
  7. The feeder grasshoppers incessantly WHACKED into my female pre-/sub. I think we'll be sticking to flies for a while...

  8. Released the oodles of nymphs I caught. Kept the two lovely ladies: an adult and a pre-sub/sub. Now - who'll come a-courting?

  9. Caught 4 wild M. Religiosa outside!!! Now I have 4 nymphs and 1 adult... Pictures to follow, and then we'll sex them! :D

    Those wing buds look identical to those of my M. Religiosa male nymph right now.
  11. Congratulations! Your female looks lovely. The male is cute, too.
