    Thanks I am too. I really love beetles though most are illegal or far to expensive.
    After X-mas I expect to obtain a giant centipede along with maybe a trilobite beetle of Loas (this is extremely rare). I do know for a fact though I will be
    getting a Giant African Mantid for sure though.

    Approx 9 months give or take 3 months.
    They are A-sexual though and will lay up to 200 eggs before passing away.
    They molt several times in there life span and can regenerate legs that were
    lost in there early life stages.

    Fun fact - The eggs have been known to be gathered by ants which
    bring them back to there nest and eat the black tip off it for the nutrients
    then leave it in there discard pile.. the egg will hatch later and the walking
    stick will just walk out of the nest as if the ordeal never happened.

    I believe that th majority will hatch for sure. Each egg can take 1-9 months to hatch it varies from egg to egg. To keep the tank in check you have to either
    remove the substrate along with the eggs and bake it for 2 hours at 300 degrees or freeze it for 2 weeks to insure the eggs will not hatch.

    It seems cruel yes but these guys have gone from 6 to 13 in 1 month. Something will have to be done to slow them down. Another
    thing that can be done is to use them as great feeders.
