I would love to keep Mantids, but dont have time space or money! Im going to college soon any ways, so after that (and once i get some cash flowing) I will definetaly get on the mantid train, right after I get on the CP train agian.
I keep him in a 1 gallon jar with several sticks to climb on and a bit of nylon stocking over the top and some lightly moistened shredded LFS in the bottom. Thanks for the ID, too!
He used to like fruitflies, and as I had a surplus of them he got quite a few. Now that he's bigger he ignores them most of the time. To much effort to catch them and not enough meat on them to make it worthwhile I suspect.
How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?

Hey, no problem! You can ID a chinese by the green running along the wings. And wings means its an adult. The FF arent interesting to him...mere pests really. Not sure what LFS is, but spray some kind of substrate (which is what that is I'm sure )every other day and he WILL fly if given the chance!! That is a beautiful mantis as i said before! It will also take larger prey like large spiders (wouldnt reccommend it), anything that moves including HUMMINGBIRDS!!
