Preying Mantis Seven Days Old

The baby mantids are seven days old now, and growing much slower than I thought they would. The first cannibalism occurred on the fifth day, although there were plenty of aphids for them. It was possibly due to over crowded conditions. They are still learning how to catch there prey.
I also had a problem with a small spider who had stowed away in the cage and had captured several babes in it's web before I even found it in the cage. I had a hell of a time getting rid of that spider!
This is a link to my other blog (are-you-sleeping.blogspot).

I'm glad there have only been a few casualties so far!
