Hello! I'm located in Kentucky USA, and I am new to mantids. I wasn't expecting to have a pet mantis, but a little while ago one appeared on my bedroom wall, so I made a little home for it. Very excited to learn more about the mantis world! I've always wanted to raise one, could not pass up this opportunity. I have a Dynastes tityus beetle larva, as well as some unidentified flower beetles. I somehow just keep ending up with more bugs!
