I have seen a few posts about mantis getting a shell disease. I was wondering if it was species specific or whether diferent animals can pass the disease along to my mantis. I put a couple of shrimp i caught in the gulf of mexico in with my mantis so that he could snack on them whenever he wanted and today i noticed one of them had a couple of dark spots on its shell. I dont know if they are diseased or just damaged from an attack. Does anyone know if my mantis can catch anything from these shrimp?
