i just bought a aqurium and two praying mantis pods for a science praject. im so excited as well as my kids are too. we are gonna keep a few as pets and give away a few houndred to some gardiners but i know my kids will love watching them grow up and hatching anybody else get this excited about bugs lol 


I am absolutly pissed off right now its been a week past the time i was sopposed to get them and they have yet to even ship them out to my house. i have contacted the seller to see what is up but still no stinking response this is the second time this has happined to me ill let yo guys know if i ever get them 

So i got a letter from the seller saying he had sent it out but it had gotten lost in transit and he has no more praying mantises so im gonna buy butterflys instead for the profect and i will try again next year :( but when i get them i will continue with posting pictures of the growth and everything like that

How exciting! We did the butterfly garden last yr and everyone loved it. We're going to do ladybug larvae this yr. Praying mantises sound fun!

OK that's helpful to know, thanks! I was originally thinking about  butterflies or moths but I think mantises would be much more cool.
