    Looking for Schizocephala bicornis

    It's been a while since I was in the hobby, but I used to keep all kinds of species back then.  My favorite by far were the Schizocephala bicornis.  Does anybody have any or a lead on them?  I'd be interested in ooth(s), nymphs, adults, etc. Thanks!

    Bugfest 2010 *PICS ADDED*

    Oh geeze, long time, no post, for me. :( As usual, it was a lot of fun, but MUCH busier. Probably the most interesting part of the day was when one of my chinese females jumped on a boy who was pretty squeamish. After being slapped and squeezed, I'm surprised it even survived. :blink...

    WANT Chinese mantis ooths!!!

    I am in dire need of several chinese ooths. They are needed for both my garden and for the local museum. I failed to keep anything all winter, so I'm hoping I can find viable ooths still for sale. :) Thanks!

    I'm least some what

    Hey guys, long time no see. It's been a while for me, been very busy with school, and graduation. (graduated from HS a few weeks ago). At the moment, I am completely void of any arthropod. I no longer have any mantids, caterpillars, tarantulas, or the precious whip scorp, so sad. :( I'll...

    Actius Luna

    KSTBCR, I edited your post so that it will be easier and clearer for me to answer. :) #1.) When I had moths, I had them in a 18" square, 24" tall mesh cage. #2.) Kinda sorta. I would recommend no smaller than the dimensions that I used. They will beat themselves up, no way around it...

    ABbuggin - (US)

    Oh geeze. :rolleyes: Ok, here's my side of the story. This person did pay for some violins, but I didn't want to ship as L2, so I held on to them while waiting for them to shed. He was aware of this as I told him in the email. As it turned out, I had a major fruit fly issue, and was...

    A cool hobby of mine

    Aside from breeding mantids, photography, pinewood derby, R/C cars, and Royal Rangers (basically Boy Scouts) model rocketry is another hobby of mine. Lots of hobbies lol. :D I'm not super involved in it, but with the dawn of spring, I decided to get back into it for a bit. Here's a few...

    Attempted House Break In!

    Lol, you could say my heartbeat raised during that occasion. Turns out there have been a lot of break ins very recently in the area. I didn't recognize any of the group, but the cops said they they probably lived in the adjacent neighborhood. They did catch one, and the cops were very...

    Attempted House Break In!

    Well I'm sure the fact that it was in progress with me home alone inside made it a high priority situation. I did think about self defense, when they started trying to break in, but up to that point I had good control over myself. When I heard them actually trying to enter, I really started to...

    Attempted House Break In!

    Thanks guys. This happened right about at noon. It sure was a frightening experience, one I wish to never go through again. 3 of the people were about my height, but one was for sure much larger (taller/muscular) than me. Not sure what would of happened if they actually came inside the house...
