Ok, so I went to this thing called Reptile Expo, and every thing was for sale. I purchased 2 mantids, a Indian Flower Mantis and a Budwing Mantis. My Flower Mantis is doing fine, but my Budwing Mantis won't eat. I feed it a roach about 3 days ago and it hasn't eaten since. I don't know what to do. HELP!!!

mantises don't eat so often - I'd put in a few crickets (3 or 4) and remove what is uneaten or one large prey item (roach) for the mantis every 10-14 days - your mantis is likely fine:)
