The first of our 2 Chinese Praying Mantis egg sacks hatched today!
So, we're in the middle of school, I think we were just finishing History (Story of the World Volume 2), and all of a sudden Giselle shouts out "It's hatching! My praying mantis egg is hatching!!" After staring at it for a few minutes, we decide that it'd be better to let them all hatch out outside in freedom instead of in the mesh cage. It took quite a while for them all to hatch. I got some weeding done in the meantime. The instructions said that from 20 to 200 would hatch, I think we got the 200 one! Hopefully Paul's has just as many inside when it hatches in another few days.
I took pictures but they were so tiny and almost see-through so they didn't photograph very well. Not that that's stopped me from posting pictures before. It's mainly that I didn't feel like downloading them onto the computer.
