Chinese mantis baby pics


A few weeks ago I acquired a Chinese mantis (Tenodera sinensis) egg case. The egg case hatched this past week. Now I have lots of little mouths to feed!

This little specimen posed very obligingly for me as I was feeding them fruit flies. There is always something very satisfying about watching a critter eat.

Well, not for the fly I suppose...

Cheers,
EC
