A new addition to our pet family

We have a new addition to our family.  It's name has yet to be decided, but it was found quite by luck out in the garden and much to the delight of my youngest.  You may remember a much beloved praying mantis was laid to rest last fall.

Now we have a little baby one to raise, well first we have to figure out what to feed this tiny little guy!  Ideas are welcome!

He's already built a bond with my son as he prefers to be held by him instead of hang out in his temporary living quarters.  He escaped once tonight already and I found him in the pet water bowl in the kitchen.  He was very happy to be rescued!

Apparently we are wildlife central.  I'm a little worried how this might escalate over the next few years... 

This little one is pretty cute though, so I'm ok with the addition.

I think praying mantis eat bugs. Not sure what kind of bugs. He is awful cute!

How sweet! And your photos are amazing! Looks like a great summer learning experience for the kids...

my son has collected many 'pets' - he is now 10 and goes on YouTube for pet care tips! - they have something for everyone

How fun...I'd be ok with this type of pet...anything that isn't creepy and crawly...Having a boy I can only imagine what kind of pet he will want one day
