  • How to train your praying mantis

    Praying mantis can be very skittish, flying away or scratching in self defense. But this article explains how to tame your mantis without any scratching or fleeing.

    Train praying mantis

    1
    Slowly slide your hand under the mantis and let him crawl onto your hand. Keep your hand over the cage so, if he jumps, he will land in his cage and not outside.

    2 Don't make any quick motions, as he's likely to fly away if you do.

     3-Hold a cricket or other small insect in front of him. Let him catch it. Let him begin to eat, and put him in his cage. (Hold the insect by its back legs, taking care that it dangles away from your fingers, otherwise the praying mantis may accidentally catch your fingers with those ferocious spines on its arms.)

     

    4-After several times, he will associate you with food and let you hold him at will.
