    Wacky Packages

    Totally collected them!! Was so excited to see them come back again, This might have nothing to do with them but around the same time I also was into Nik-L-Nips those waxy bottles with colored liquid inside. Those are back around again too :P

    Why is my idolo not eating? please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How often should they molt?

    Wondering how your Blue flashes are. Mine just had her second molt. She is about two inches now and will eat about 4 blue bottles a day. Here is a picture of her.

    New Idolo stopped eating!

    Oh wow didn't think of this. Better put the Hydei back in and take out the houseflies. This Idolo has caused me more pain !! Actually out of the six mantids I own she is the sweetest though. She seems to like to come out of the enclosure much more than the others and hang out on my hand. But...

    Spiderwebs Swarms the countrysides of Australia

    I think it's funny that there's no news showing people freaking out and running from these swarms of spiders. Instead there's a picture of a women walking her dog through these miles of webs very calmy and matter of fact. Rather peculiar.....I would be a little freaked out. Maybe we missed that...

    Wahlbergii.. why do that?

    Looks like a little discipline is needed here! :no: Maybe you need to throw some toys in there to keep him busy instead!

    New Idolo stopped eating!

    Well Day eight has come and gone. I've tried BB, House flies, large fruit flies, Wax worms, all with no luck!! ( just a fancy threat pose when a wax worm was offered by toothpick) :blush: . She wanted out yesterday and walked around on our hands and seemed lively. Don't know where she's...

    Never seen this color on a spiny Flower before: Thought it might be tweaked by a photo editor but what is this? If this link doesn't work than look up Alien Praying Mantis drunk and dancing in Uganda on YouTube (don't pay attention to the drunk part just the color :P )
