    Incest with mantids

    I wouldn't suggest any more than one generation of incest babies if it can be helped, maybe two if you want to push it. Any more than that and you'll have a lot of nymph deaths, and they'll be much weaker and more fragile than they should be if they were from separate lineages. Thankfully most...

    Awesome experience! Ordered 5 ghosts and they arrive well fed and very active. They were packed well and all in very good health

    Got a handful of orchids from him, definitely will again in the future! Packing was perfect, insulated box with heat pack. Nymphs look good and well fed as well, and they all made it safe and sound. Thank you!

    Looking for older nymphs

    There is a charity event at the children's hospital in my area, and some of the organizers of the event have asked if I want to bring some of my creatures to show to the kids. I have only small nymphs, so I am looking for a few larger nymphs (presub or sub preferred), any species is fine. I have...

    Dark stain on nymphs eye.

    I’d agree with @hysteresis. It’s probably  just from her looking at everything there is to see! Unless it’s clearly affecting her vision, she should be fine!

    SUCCESS #2!!!!!!!!!!

    I had 3 females and 3 males in the same tank, but I only saw one pair actually connect. Many weeks and 15+ ooths later (!), I have already had at least one ooth from each female hatch in the past week or so (small hatches, only about 6 from each)

    Tybalt will soon die and I want to pin him

    I’ve read that you typically will want to clean out their abdomen, so that they don’t rot/discolor/stink. If you have a razor, just carefully cut along it’s abdomen where you won’t see it and use tweezers/toothpick to clean out all the goodies 😊

    Purple spiny flower mantis?

    I've seen some picture on google of some really purple spiny flower nymphs (search "inaturalist spiny flower mantis"). There are a few entries that are of nearly solid purple nymphs. Has anyone ever had one of these? Or otherwise seen one in real life? I know that this species has been known to...

    ISO male Spiny flower/ or Female FS

    I have an adult female pseudocreobotra wahlbergii, and I would like another male for her (She ate mine!). If possible, I would like to purchase the male.  Conversely, if you have a male, I would be willing to sell/trade her. She molted on January 4, an she hasn't laid an ooth yet, but she is...

    Yen Saw - (US)

    Sold a few of my nymphs, so I decided to get a few more nymphs of some species I have. As luck would have it, a few hours after I started looking, Yen made a post offering the two species I was looking for: ghost and spiny flowers. Of course, with a reputation like Yen’s, it was impossible to...
