My 7 year old son is an aspiring bug scientist! He loves to find bugs and bring them in the house to study them. THis winter we "housed" two praying mantis eggs. Now if you know anything about insect eggs, you'll know that there can be hundreds of insects per egg!
Once the eggs hatched and the weather was warm, we released them. Well two days ago wee found a decent sized praying mantis and my son was super excited. Praying mantids don't travel far so that may be one of the ones we released. He was so excited that he decided to put it on his head and walk around with it for a while.
