HELLO!

I've been away from this forum for a bit (almost 8 years I think) and decided to pop in and say hi again. I'm 34 and work as a full stack software developer in the hospitality industry. I've owned ghost, orchid, chinese, and a variety of creo mantids in the past. My all time favorite mantis is the orchid mantis.

Cheers,

Mr. Mantid

@hibiscusmile I was active for a year or two 2010 to 2012 or so. I had bought some metalyticus splendidus for quite a bit of moolah's only to have one eaten by my roaches and the other squished in shipping. I decided to take a break after that.

I'm from WI as well. Give me your mantids! :unsure:
I don't have any unfortunately. My wife is not a huge bug person and I decided to come back out of nostalgia sake. I can enjoy the wild ones outside my house so I still have that!

You picked an expert species to start with, too bad someone didn't get you to buy ghosts.

Oh, I didn't start with that species, (although I'm definitely was/still am a beginner) - I've had a number of different ones before then including ghosts. They were definitely more difficult than other species I had, although I did manage to get him through quite a bit of molts. It was my first time raising roaches as food though and that's where I messed up. If I ever get back into keeping mantids, I don't think I would keep that species again and go with either ghosts or orchids.
