I’ve been thinking about keeping a praying mantis and I’m doing a bit of research now. If anyone’s got any enclosure ideas please share them. I’m aware they don’t live long. Also, any particular species for a newbie?

I've had one in a butterfly cage.

It works really well! Just put some twigs and some fake plants and they do great. The one I had was 1 wild caught baby out of the thousand that where coming out of the egg. Where I live has very lol humidity so they are well adapted to it and i never had to do anything more then spray it twice a day just so it could drink. I feed him every day staring with baby crickets and eventually adult cockroaches. It only took him 5 weeks to go from less then 1 gram to 20 grams.
