You can find mantids in your backyard. Most of the time they will be Tenodera sinensis. You can keep them in captivity but they only live about a year from hatching. Maybe a little bit longer. Here's some I spotted in my garden during the warmer parts of the year.





Also, when did this thread become a discussion on bugs?
