Pet Insect 

I was a little worried about Mushi-rin because its enclosure was smelling bad and I fed it some possibly sickly fruit flies.

So I fed it some fresh insects, and replaced the soil in its enclosure with some fresh, clean soil from the pet store.

I also read that praying mantids need something to hang from to molt, so I made sure its stick was high up in the enclosure.

It seems that this helped: Mushi-rin molted again!

Even though it's a bit inconsistent and maybe a bit nonstandard, is much more fun than which I was using before, so I'm going to switch to it.

Mushi-rin had a lot to eat yesterday! There were so many fruit flies that I thought I'd better give some of them.

Its tummy looks pretty full now, so I think I'll hold off for a day or two.


Cute videos! I thought these were too big, but after re-encoding they fit under the size limit here.


Mushirin was very hungry! It tried to grab a new fruit fly when it hadn't even finished eating the first one. 😂


Looks like Mushirin molted! So much bigger than at the beginning. I wonder how long it will live...


It's been hard not feeding my mantis all day. I feel sorry for the poor thing!

Wow. I guess I'm a bit late to the party, but Valve's Proton is game-changing, no pun intended. I'm able to play Windows native VR games on Linux.

Carrier Command 2 VR and Ultrawings both worked after just a bit of tweaking.


I don't think it was eating enough before! It chowed down on a bunch of fruit flies, and now it looks much healthier.

I just hope I didn't overfeed it. Time for a two-day food break.
