    Hi, I am looking at possibly getting a praying mantis at bugfest in Bedford in August. I am researching what species to get but one thing I can't find out is if there is any type of mantis that is more handleable than others. Is there such thing as a handleable mantis? If so which one or ones...

    Okay so in October last year (2012) we bought an African Lined Praying Mantis and were told that unless its kept in direct sunlight it will be green. Since the day we bought it, it's not once been in direct sunlight, only ambient room light and it's always been brown. Is this normal or are we...

I left the door open for him to fly out if he was able to find it but he stuck around. We've found...

    I really love this species and am hoping to start with mantids and have these as my first species but am a bit confused on their care. They seem a little more advanced than other species, so if you could answer a few questions I would be more than greatful... Do they require extra heating? Do...

I rather liked them and decided now was the time to get one of my own. I got my first mantis of my own...
