  1. soundspawn


    Bought 1,000 roaches. He deals through Etsy but I can say that process was fine. Registered, bought his "custom order" he created on there, and paid with major cc. Great communication, and plenty of extras on top of the promotional over count. Price was a tad high compared to some online...

    Possible case of parthenogenesis

    So I have an Acromantis formosana adult female. She molted to adult 10 days ago... and laid an ooth last night. She hasn't been mated (I've had her for three instars and don't even have a male formosana). What I find odd is to lay so fast if not fertilized. In my experience females hold...

    Pnigomantis medioconstricta

    (Currently) just a few shots of my female having a snack. I also figured out how to actually zoom with my macro lens instead of shoving it in her face, so that was exciting :P

    Reptile Expo this Saturday (Portland Oregon)

    I didn't see any posts about the reptile expo this weekend, but I've heard there often are mantids and of course there will be mutual feeders, terrariums, and other supplies. I'll be going, anyone else?

    My feeder set ups

    For anyone thinking about breeding feeders, here is some documentation on what I have. Up front I would say it is worth the time effort and energy if you have a lot of mouths to feed. The crickets will breed out of control in no time so you either need a lot of predators or someone to sell...

    Ordered ooth, arrived really fast, great packaging and care was obviously taken down to every detail. Included some instructions and we have been chatting since. 10/10, very happy.

    The Bug Room

    Figured I'd share a little knowledge while showing off my set up... I have a dedicated room converted in to a terrarium, including automatic (and fairly advanced) lighting, heating/cooling, and humidity control. If anyone is thinking about doing something similar and wants to talk about it, or...
