Praying Mantis tragedy






We were looking forward to our newest lab addition, but after 8 weeks, nothing. The egg cases feel spongy, the humidity and temperature have been what was recommended, and nada! I think I am more disappointed then the students! So, of course we had to do an eggtopsy and find out what went wrong. We found eggs inside of the egg case, but when we checked them under a microscope, no movement. Is it too soon? I am keeping an egg case just in case we did not wait long enough. I guess our newest project is on hold until next year...
