Praying mantids as pets

Praying mantids have long been kept as pets, with some hobbyists having 1 or 2, and some building up collections into the thousands of insects. It’s very easy to replicate the natural habitat of a praying mantis in the home, and with a few pieces of inexpensive equipment, you can put together a professional looking setup that add great interest to the home.

Stick insects as pets

Stick insects provide alternative yet easy to keep pets, similarly to a praying mantis. However, maintenance of stick insects is much easier, in the fact they don’t need to be fed livefood. Not only does this make rearing them easier, but much cheaper.
