    Giant Asian Mantis (Hierodula membranacea) Enclosure; Help?

    I use paper towels as well. If you want to display her, substrate is pretty, but a huge mess to clean. Also in those Exo Terra's and Zoomeds I feel like moisture can become an issue and so mold can become an issue. :-/ Yucky for you and your mantis. Go with the paper towels and you will not be...

    I was looking into pinning a while back but with the bigger ones you have to scoop the guts out. I don't know if I'm up for that. Especially with my babies!

    Eastern Hercules beetle. So does this count as wild caught?

    I released him. I would love to keep some someday but I was totally unprepared. I will have to work on an Orin approved set up. Also he didn't seem to be in the best shape, so I figured I would let him stay in his natural home. I found him a nice moist shady spot in the woods.

    Eastern Hercules beetle. So does this count as wild caught?

    I went to pick up pizza and overheard a family talking about a stag beetle. Then I heard one of them saying "Where should we let it go?" I was all "Please allow me to introduce myself!" :devil: Luckily I just happened to have this layin' around!

    Mantis hand feeding question

    I'm with Patrickfraser. Go outside and find some dog pooh. It's super easy to catch the flies. Just pop a deli cup over them they fly to the top, then slide the lid on. Precarious told me that when I was out of flies and it's super easy!

    Mason jars, take 2!

    Yeah, I think it's always a lovely idea to use what you have. But feeding would make me crazy. The washer idea sounds great. I've done something similar before with just cutting a hole and plugging it with foam.

    My Savannah Monitor.

    How big will she get? I knew someone who had one of those water monitors that got huge! I'm not at all familiar with the savannah monitor. Do you have other lizards, snakes etc?
