hey folks,
so idk if anyone else has tried rearing hatchlings of Mantis religiosa and failed miserably, with huge die-offs immediately?
well, I have a few ooths and I am going to try outdoor rearing cages and then indoor cages mimicing some aspects of the outdoors (day/night temp shift, UVB light, etc) to try and pinpoint what about being indoors is so detrimental to this species as youngins
I will elaborate more on this later (gotta run to teach my class in a few) but stay tuned!!

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

This is going to be a super cool experiment. I can’t wait to see the results.
