    Day In the Life of a Mantid Breeder?

    Well, up until a couple of months ago i would wake up around 11:00am. I would look at my bugs as soon as i open my eyes cuz they sleep right next to me. really about 4 inches from my face.

    Hey they like ants. They love em actually. Aside from ants they are eating each other too, so I think they will be okay.

    I was thinking of doing the ultimate taboo and letting them go. It is summer and they will not interbreed with any other species and they will not live past fall. This way they will have a fighting chance for food. What do you guys think?

    Well, I have a bunch of budwings that hatched about 6 days ago. Petco was out of FF's so i ordered a culture. When i got it today all the FF's were dead. They already are eating each other. Any suggestions?

    frilled wings

    As long as he can still use his front claws to grasp prey he will be okay. Sounds like he can still hang on to stuff with his remaining legs, so I think he will be okay. Have you tried to feed him?

    Well she seems to be in the same state she was yesterday. There is clearly nerve damage. I hope it is reversible. She is able to use her legs, but she seems to flail her claws like she can't control them when i touch her. I woke up today and she either climbed off or fell off the outside of the...

    Well my budwing is not doing too well after eating a firefly about 36 hours ago. I thought she was dead but she is still alive fighting for her life. I thought for sure she would start to decompose, but this morning she was still in one piece. Her legs seem to be curled up and not able to use...
