          They are cool. I would have some but they don’t live very long and that would make me too sad. Still, I might try to get over it and indulge in some orchid or leaf types one day.

          I bet it’s fun to watch them hunt and feed. How many crickets per week does each mantis consume?

          It depends on how hungry they are they can go threw 4and 5 crickets per meal and they eat several times a week

      Awesome!! I love the giant rainforest!! I haven’t found any nymphs lately. I currently have spiny, giant asian, ghosts, caffra, a Brunner ooth, ghost. And gemmatus ooth baking. It started as a simple hobby and it took over!!
