Alex the Praying Mantis Update 7

Friday morning Alex molted AGAIN! We finally figured out that she was a she. She is huge now. We went tonight and bought her big crickets to eat because the little moths that we have been feeding her are probably too small. We don’t want her to be hungry. She has her wings now too.

Here is a link to a movie of Alex, it is not great, she stopped walking all over my arms, but I will try to make another. It was funny when she kept trying to attack my mom’s camera lens. She kept seeing her reflection in the glass.

Here are a couple of pictures of her eating the crickets. She always eats upside down. She is crazy.
