    Do you use paper towel??

    I also use papertowels, IF they get moldy or to "dirty" they are easy to take out becuase they harden when dry, lol love use it them, except for ooths, cuase baby nymphs love hiding underneath and then get stuck -,-'

    Well people in europe are, in my opinion, ages ahead of us on mantis care! And when i first started this hobby plenty were expiermenting with alot of foods and care and housing! Its already been proven many many times that a tropical mantis can live a full term just on crickets, kept cold...
