Just to keep you guys freshened up with new species that you don't see posted every day (or ever in any forums for that matter. Unless we're...

    Pics of an Orchid Mantis that I raised from a nymph

    I had this lady for quite a while, until she ended her natural life cycle, which was a very sad day for me. This thing was super spoiled, as I'd had them in the past with little luck, so I was determined to do things right this time around. I bought bluebottle fly pupae, hatched them...

    JonnyQ's outdoor seed setup

    Cicada nymph pics

    Saw this guy walking around outside and I figured he'd molt tonight, so I put him in a jar. I've never seen one before it's molted. I'll post pics if it molts and doesn't die before then, and then I'll let him go. We must have more than one species in Georgia because this thing is HUGE compared...
