For Christmas, Katie received a praying mantis kit. She has two egg sacs. There are supposed to be 50-100 in an egg sac. AAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Okay, the little buggers have hatched. Unfortunately, the flightless fruit flies that we bought to feed them, not so alive. There's some in the container, but not a heck of alot that I can see. And I think these guys are hungry.
I'm sure it's just a matter of time before they start eating each other, but I think they are too small for that right now. From what I've read, at this size, fruitflies are basically it.
Anybody got any spare fruitflies? Ew.
I did take pictures, I'll add those later when I'm back home depending on how they came out.
And wouldn't you know it, the stupid things hatch when JC's not going to be home for two days.
