What are the silly things you like to do with your mantises?

When mine are grooming, I like to place my finger to their mouth and get groomed myself. I think it's hilarious how they just immediately forget they were grooming themselves and just go to nibble on you.

If you think my replies are wordy, then you should listen to my thoughts. It's a constant debate.
yea, I'm the same way and getting high only makes it worse
getting drunk helps but obviously I can't do that all the time and when I'm drunk I get really bad urges to self-harm
my anti anxiety meds and antipsychotics only help so much
PTSD is a bitch

This thread has been quite derailed. I just wanted to hear people's cute mantis stories. ;-;

Ok, back on track, this is not funny but I was outside this afternoon and found 3 adult mantis. One papa, and two momas. I brought them in so they can live inside for the winter. I put a lot out each spring, so I am hoping to find more.

Must be nice. I can never find mantises where I live. : (

yea my mantises don't usually do funny stuff but I've had several Creobroter lay ooths on their container walls rather than the fake plants I give them, and this is where "autistic flower mantis" comes from

That is kind of silly lol. You'd think they'd lay them on the plants.
