Praying mantis babies!!!

A few weeks ago I found and ootheca ( praying mantis egg sac) on my house and I took it in. Right now three babies have hatched. soon I will welcome hundreds more! They are similar to ants in that they are born white and turn dark. They are super easy to care for as well. SOOO stoked! The babies are this big! (-----)
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

You can use certain websites for free. That's what I did and they worked just fine.

Carefull tho, if you keep them close together there is a good chance they'll eat each other!...

Yeah, I let most of em go except for five witch i kept separate. four died of unsuccessful molting, and the last one recently died of unknown causes. I did find another egg sac, so I will see if it hatches.
