I've raised Tenodora sinensis & S. Carolina mantis and have been fascinated with insects since I was very young. I can still remember being out in the yard with my Golden Guide insect book trying to ID insects in the rose bushes. Alongside the mantis I also have cultured D. melanogaster, D. hydei fruitflies as well as Dubia Roaches (Blaptica dubia) to feed my mantis. I'm constantly in awe of the fauna and flora of our beautiful planet and I don't think I'll ever lose my curiosity and appreciation for nature. Besides my natural interests I am also an artist.

I hope I can add some value and hone my ID skills on this amazing website.

Please feel free to Frass or critique my photographs so that I can make lasting contributions. I will not be offended.
