    We could learn from the RoachForum

They are kept at room temperature and doing very well. I also have two bowls in the enclosure where I put their food so its...

    hierodula (U.S.)

    I traded with Hierodula and everything was very well packed and the mantises arrived in good condition. And I even got replacements when one mantis died. He was very informative and answered my questions quickly. Definitely recommend! Very good place to get some interesting and fun mantises.

    zilla micro habitat

    Hey has anyone kept mantises in the Zilla Micro habitat? I just saw it and it looks like an interesting habitat but don't know if it is good for mantises. Does it have holes that fruit flies would escape from? How does it open? I can't tell if it has a door or it just slides open or something...

    Rip Bigsby the female Ghost mantis

    I did say in MOST cases there. Yes of course there is the fact of nutrition and such that might shorten lifespan. But in general animals kept in captivity do tend to live longer then animals in the wild. Regardless my mantis had a nice life. This is not meant to be a post about how people care...

    Rip Bigsby the female Ghost mantis

    Yes from the date she hatched until she died. And yes captivity does allow mantises to live far longer then they would in the wild in most cases. Since there are no predators and also no weather such as cold or rain. There are also certain diseases and parasites that they might encounter in the...

    Rip Bigsby the female Ghost mantis

    Very sad that my adult female ghost mantis Bigsby has passed on to the big mantis heaven today. She was a great and happy mantis. She lived for nearly 21 months! She was 3 days shy of being 21 months old! I think she was one of my longest living ghosts. She molted to an adult last Christmas on...

    Generic Caresheet Updates!!

    That's fine. I was just wondering if you had. Thanks anyway. Since you don't have much experience with them I would say don't waste your time since it wouldn't be much info anyway. I would say only if you had extra time or nothing else to write lol.

    Generic Caresheet Updates!!

    Do you have any information on Grizzled mantises? I did not see it in your caresheet though so I am assuming you just haven't worked with that species yet?
