Raising Praying Mantis

During bug week, Evin's grandpa sent him a Praying Mantis kit and our mantis finally arrived!

We also got some flightless fruit flies to feed them.  

We headed outside and prepared the habitat for the egg case.  

Then we hung it up in his room and waited......about three weeks.  

Then one morning it sounded as though it was raining in Evin's room.  

Hundred of baby mantis! 
Since they are voracious eaters and will eat each other we separated them the best we could.  

Then we shared some with our friends.....
