I noticed today that there appears to be a cluster of green eggs at the entrance to my Mantis's door. Is this possible? I thought they carried eggs under the tail??? This is the same Mantis that just had babies a few days ago. Also, I never saw any eggs before she had the first batch of babies. Interesting side note.......Daddy Mantis is nowhere to be found now. I suppose he could be hiding out. Do the females ever eat their mates? He was a lot smaller than her.
