Recieved a phyllocrania paradoxa (ghost mantis) ootheca in the mail today Very Happy

Here is a picture of the incubator/enclosure! Smile

I expect around 15 to emerge as it's not too big.

Lets just hope it hatches! It was pretty dry in the container it came in.


Fancy home made door Rolling Eyes



Made the door so that i wont have to take the lid off every time i add food or water Smile

Nothing happened yet..

I also got one acontista multicolor ooth and one hierodula membranacea ooth. The membranacea was supposed to replace the 2 dead mantids i got from polyped but it was moldy..
The acontista multicolor ooth was dry and dark so I doubt theres life in that too..

Maybe I'm not supposed to be a mantis keeper Sad
