New Babies!

As I type this entry, dozens of Chinese praying mantises are hatching from their ootheca (egg case) in the living room.  We're always so excited for this wonderous happening every year after keeping the egg case cool in the fridge over the winter.  Today, the children were home from school and got a chance to witness the emerging babies.

  1. Exciting! The living room? That is interesting.

    There is a nest at our kids' school garden waiting for babies to come out.
