Who Nose

I have way to many mantids relative to the amount of soft bodied prey for them to eat. I had more hatch in the second cage and they have become over crowded. I wanted to release some in the yard today but it's windy and raining, so maybe I'll wait one more day, but then that would be there natural enviorment if they had been born in the wild, maybe I'll just open the top of the cage and give them the option to escape if they please.
One thing that I have noticed though is that dispite what I have read, they do seem to be social, at least in the closed enviornment of a cage. They tend to gather together rather than distancing themselves from each other except for the rare individual.
