Im starting this to create a place for me to make posts/pictures on my mantis keeping adventure. Im hoping to start breeding soon, but i'm still new and chicken out half the time. I have not had success yet at breeding or hatching just yet. On my 1st pair the male died early, and on my hatch I used a mesh cage and dried it out. I still got 1 baby that I named Ono. :)  

Im making this so I can post updates as I continue to learn more, and hopefully grow my success and produce my own babies. I currently have 2 ghost breeding pairs, so I'm gonna try my luck with those. They're L3 and still very small. But I'm trying to speed there growth by feeding a lot.

We will see what happens. But I will post pictures on here every time something significant happens. For example, my ghosts upgrade to L4, I managed to breed them, etc. I really love this hobby, but I still have sooooo much to learn. 

I hope to have many pictures on here in the future. But for now, here's a pic of Ono. (If anyone knows his or her gender let me know, Im not sure if its too young or not.)  :D

Everyone should have one if these threads. I'm glad you're starting one! 

I can't say for sure, but Ono looks male.

2nd ooth. The other 2 females died due to abdomen infections that they must have gotten outside.

But this female mated twice and is poppin off ooths.

She is taking forever to lay, so im hoping she is putting a lot of eggs in there!!

I am planning on selling these, they are Stagmomantis conspurcata which is similar to Carolina, but more rare and native to Texas.

Welp. It's gonna be a busy couple months for me.

3 Stagmomantis conspurcata ooths

2 Chinese ooths

1 Ghost ooth

1 Stagmomantis California ooth

Thanks to @MrGhostMantis and @Immanus for the ooths!

I'll post again once one hatches, or if my female lays another ooth! :D
