    Found Mantid

    No, it's not a posting on craigslist for lost mantid lol.

    But I did find this mantis inside my apartment complex, so that was weird. I brought it in my house because these kids were poking it. It was fine at first, but now it's kind of curled up, think it's dying. It's back legs weren't working. From what I can guess, it's end of breeding season and maybe it's a dying male?

    I have it setup in a tall glass with air holes with some sticks and leaves.

    Any thoughts?

    i don't think they live too long regardless of sex. might just be old. i also believe that most of the time the female will eat the male during courtship.
