    Could a mantis live in a CP terrarium? I'm going to get a 40 gallon breeder tank (sometime) for them. Would it be too bright or humid?

    Yes, the conditions in a terrarium may be suitable for most mantids… especially the more exotic species. The humidity will aid Ecdysis (molting) too. The one problem is that mantids will eat each other. So, when using your CP terrarium you will only be able to place 1 individual inside of it. Oh yeah, also watch out for the obvious... don't let your plants eat your insects!

    Many of the breeders that I know don’t use a terrarium larger than 15 gallons when attempting to mate a pair. I use a large Critter Keeper for breeding in the summer, but the mantid species I keep is kind of on the small side…
