Baby Mama


A few weeks ago was my birthday! It was so great. I’m another year older, I got to spend time with family and friends, and my fiance’, Carrie, gave me some Mantis egg sacks. How odd you might say :). Well, I really love odd things and she knows me so well! Honestly, I was a little creeped out at first but it was the good kind of creepiness.

Anyway, I got a little stick and attached the sacks to the stick inside of a little container and waited for the inevitable. Within a few weeks those little mantids started to wriggle and squirm out of the eggs and had soon filled the inside of my little fish bowl.

From that point on I had to make so many decisions about the future of my little babies… do I leave them be and let them eat each other hoping that the strongest would survive? Should I let a bunch go hoping they would be able to fend for themselves?

Stay tuned for further updates…
