Oh Gods. When I was little I used to catch a TON of grasshopers and put them in a plastic bug container, and one time it fell over and my mom woke me up because there were grasshopers EVERYWHERE

Oh…

Hahaha! I’m so glad I’m not the only one with similar experience. Bug horror stories are great!

Oh gods I’d much rather have baby mantis’ all over my room than grasshoppers. I don’t like grasshoppers little prickly legs.

I found a nice solution for the egg case. I have a coffee filter used for ventilation in the little container. No baby mantis’ all over my room this time! Success!

Lmao I swear everyone who has had mantis have this issue. I was like maybe it’s not gonna hatch, then next morning boom- mantis all over my bathroom.

Yep. It’s not really a disaster but it’s time consuming to collect them all up without killing most of them.

I found a pair of tiger slugs mating. I swear slugs are incredible. Their mating is so weird.

Slugs are hermaphrodites, having both female and male reproductive organs.[10] Once a slug has located a mate, they encircle each other and sperm is exchanged through their protruded genitalia. A few days later, the slugs lay around thirty eggs in a hole in the ground, or beneath the cover of an object such as a fallen log.

Apophallation is a commonly seen practice among many slugs. In apophallating species, the penis curls like a corkscrew and during mating, it often becomes entangled in the mate’s genitalia. Apophallation allows the slugs to separate themselves by one or both of the slugs chewing off the other’s penis. Once its penis has been removed, the slug is still able to mate using only the female parts of its reproductive system.[10]

Astrid eating a cricket, and then a grasshopper the next day. She like to eat in the same spot haha.


So I found a beautiful, large, pregnant praying mantis a few nights ago. She’s finally settled in a decided to lay her eggs over night. I was so happy!

Her name is Astrid. 

She even eats crickets from tweezers from me now. I have to say though.. she’s not very photogenic. I’ve always found it easy to photograph mantises but she just doesn’t.
