I recently moved into a new space and have been rearranging my setups. I would love to see how you guys keep your mantis.

Here is mine. Its a mix of Deli cups, acrylic terrariums, aquariums, Tupperware, and wire cages for my current 12 species.

I love the decorations! I can see it at the top, but what species is that?
Hahaha, I enjoy decorating for the each holiday, but the Halloween and Christmas stuff tends to hang around year round. The mantis is an adult, male Stagmomantis limbata

 

The Wolven

bug-cats or cat-bugs? That is the real question.

Mine is less a setup and more a spoiled mantis cage.

Of course given all the room and stuff, you can see where my mantis prefers to hang out. :stuart:

Do you move your mantis to a smaller container when feeding? (I too had fun spoiled my mantis with Halloween decorations.)

Most of the time I just use tongs/tweezers or hold a little cup up with food in it for them to snag out of. If I got a shyer eater though, then I will pop them into a smaller cage. Usually I rotate my adult females in this tank, so they tend to be greedy enough to take whatever you offer them. Right now however, he is my only resident mantis so he gets the whole place to himself.
