    Dealing With The Death Of A Mantis

    Mantids have personalities. I have seen it in my mantids. When Anainah died I cried. Fought for her life because somehow she didn't eat. I had to force fed her. I got her to sub adult stage. Even she was just an insect, I cared for her. Happy that she had eaten a few bites..

    can I ask a possibly controversial question??

    My hubby knows I have 5 adult hissing roaches:ROFLMAO: Those I won't feed to my mantids. But their young I will. Last year we had a heatwave to they mated and got young, my mantis of last year lived on them. We have had a heatwave again, so free feeders in the winter because I don't know what...

    My mantis lost a leg.

    She molted yesterday en she had a good molt and she has grown a new small leg. I think she has one more molt to go, so the leg will grow bigger. It is nice to see how nature fixes a lost leg with next molt to replace the lost one:cool:

    My mantis lost a leg.

    Good to know, it will grow back. Think she has 2 molts to go. I dont think she feels handicapped with one leg less. she will adapt if her new leg is smaller than her other legs. Hope she will eat good for the energy she needs to gow that leg back. She is still a problematic eater but yesterday...

    can I ask a possibly controversial question??

    I think that is the reason. they watch you with turning their head like we do and front legs look like arms. Just human like. But feeders must be taken care for too, because that will be the meal for the mantis. I have a few big hissing roaches, but but won't feed them to my mantis. but with...

    New mantis

    Thanks, I had to force fed Anainah And she is eating a nice juicy half dubia. Think she likes the white goo in them. I still prefer she hunt her own food but I won't let her starve.
