    I sold some isopods to cometmoth recently and let me tell you, cometmoth was so patient with me! I had many many many delays and cometmoth was cool as a cucumber the whole time. I'm so grateful for the kindness, and for the smooth purchase that he made. I totally recommend dealing with cometmoth!

    Mantis ID in Savannah GA - Mantis walking on Spiderweb!

    I know the spider was gone for a few days, weather or not the mantis ate it, I don't know.   But yeah, that area gets real dusty from the road, could have been less sticky.  I was just amazed at how precisely the mantis navigated the web!  I really did think it was a spider at first.

    Mantis ID in Savannah GA - Mantis walking on Spiderweb!

    Maybe not . . . too green and long body with too short legs. This may have been it.  The color is right, with long skinny legs! But what about the "walking on a spider web" aspect?  Is there another account of Thesprotia graminis (or any other mantis) being able to walk on a spider web...

    Mantis ID in Savannah GA - Mantis walking on Spiderweb!

    Mealworms & Styrofoam Composting

    *UPDATE* I'm on my 2nd generation of mealworms, that have been raised on mostly pure styrofoam, I say "mostly" because I would give small portions of other food every month or so, mainly for the meal beetles that started emerging. I did find that meal beetles will eat some styrofoam, but they...

    Both forearms/raptors missing

    A mantis can eat if missing limbs.  Bring an insect to the mantid's mouth (tongs may help) and if they are hungry, they may eat.  It could help if the invert your offering has it's body "opened" so the juicy parts are exposed (example, removing the head on a cricket and offering the juicy...

    Mealworms & Styrofoam Composting

    From what I've read, yes, they can. (see links below)  And I've started raising some with only styrofoam . . . and they are still alive.  I just mist with water every now and then.  I think the beetles need other foods though, but I'm not totally sure yet. From what I've read, they pass any...

    Mealworms & Styrofoam Composting

    Are you using Mealworms to compost styrofoam? I have a setup and I was wondering, do mealbeetles eat styrofoam too, or just the mealworms? Do you have any other tips on styrofoam composting with mealworms?
