Hello fellow! I found a pretty big mantis about 4 inches long, I've fed him a large cricket and a big moth so far. How much and often should i feed him? THankyou!

Your pet's abdomen should remain thick (not skinny). If it gets too fat, you can take a break. If it gets too thin, it's time to feed it! 0 to 7 insects per week is good, depending on your pet's size. They can go several weeks without food or eat 7 insects, one after the other.

A mantis is like a bottomless pit. They will often eat well past the point of necessity.
