Do you have
The date you found these ooths? And do you have the size of her grown up? I'm just curious!

 
Ya know I can't remember when
Ya know I can't remember when she made them. It had to be vefore winter last year. She died shortly after making them. I had foind a male and put him in with her, but never saw them together. However, a week or so after she had died I saw the ooths attached to the top of her enclosure. I don't know if they are viable, and I think they may have frozen, as it's been well over 6-7 months and no mantises have emerged. But I still have them, just in case. They are very small. I wish I could remember how big she was too but I can't. Sorry
