    Setting up enclosure for Heterochaeta Orientalis

    My daughter wants to put a tiny human skull in there too and fake succulents - not the pokey ones. She's into art so I guess our mantis homes have to be artistic also lol 🙃 Never argue with a 10 yr old going on 30 👽

    Setting up enclosure for Heterochaeta Orientalis

    MantisGirl13 - We were going to mix it with the coconut fiber substrate. Sometimes I'm not sure how these adorable little aliens survive at all outside! :P they're from Africa so we were trying to do environments similar to the place of origin? Was thinking those guys/girls would enjoy...

    Our 1st molt question

    Hi, Our new nymphs just had 1st successful molt, "Look mom there are two of them now!" How long should we leave them alone before feeding, touching enclosure, adding humidity? He/she did a great job and we don't want to screw it up lol. Thanks for replies Cel - Overprotective Hive Mother

    What's a good place to buy feeders from?

    For pupae we aren't ready to hatch we use this. Working fine so far. Probably better prices but we got it on a prime day sale. Cooluli Mini Fridge

    Moths!! Moths!! Moths!!

    Does anyone know where one could purchase feeder moths, possibly to start my own moth colony? Our oldest mantis, locally found MI, is getting very slow. She loves, loves loves moths. They are hard to find now. We have fruitflies and houseflies for our babies but she needs larger prey. Sent my...
