    Forget the Pope and Young buck ... I'd just like to get a decent buck that will put a roast in the oven.

    And now, back to the topic:mrgreen:

    THE HUNT IS OVER
    Started this thread back in September when I noticed the mantis.Well,Its been a long hard hunt.Spent a lot of late nights just watching and waiting,scouting,learning his habits.And its finally paid off.

    Watched him come out to feed.Then he took his meal under one of the foundation rocks in my tank.As soon as he was under the rock,I covered the hole he went in with my net and run a plastic coat hanger through his escape hole.Running him back out into the net.Which was quickly flipped against the glass,trapping the mantis between the 2.

    They can be pretty vicious.But you gotta respect em too.They're not a "dumb" animal by any means,are are a pretty decent challange to catch even in a glass box.
