    Default Cory Catfish's Praying Mantis Journal


    0 Not allowed!
    I was passing by a bush today amd saw a mantis that was almost crushed by an onslaught of kids. Being the mantis fanatic that I was I picked it up and rescued it. I have owned two mantises before and this one was pretty young so I immediately set up a critter cage that used to have caterpillars in it. I thought I would start a mantis journal. They are quite likeable insects after all.

    So I made the mistake of letting it out before I got out of the car. Bad idea. It took me five minutes to catch it. I temporarily housed it in a net whie I did some errands. It has a really feisty temper, unike my previous mellow mantii. A lot of clawing here. Worse than a cat.

    It looks quite young and probably has a good five months to go.

    The critter cage is quite small but I purposely chose a two gallon due to the fact that mantii do not need a lot of space. The bigger the enclosure is the harder it is for the mantii to find food.
    I tested 97% positive for Multiple Tank Syndrome

    I know someone who's kept/bred/raised mantii, and I think they're cool little critters. Too bad it's too cold for them where I live

    This one is a burnt orange color with some black spots. I'll try to get some pictures of him if he allows me to. One quick mantis.

    I dropped a cricket in the mantis house. The mantis followed it and immeadiately snatched it. I am still trying to upload pics onto here. There will be a load of pics on here when I succeed.

    Sorry for the inactivity.. got seriously into computer stuff last month. I tried uploading a thumbnail. It didnt work. How do you do this again?

    The mantis is doing fine. The crickets ran out fast. I have to keep buying crickets each week....and they are 20 cents each for the small ones.
