Hello all. My ghost mantis is fully grown & I have had her since she was a nymph L2. Her last molt was Oct 10th. She has been eating and moving around normally until recently. Her arms have been getting discoloured & she moves a lot slower now, she still has enough strength to hang but she has plopped once. I have been leaving flies for her but I find the flies dead and on the ground with no bite in them. I have also tried hand feeding her which usually works but she leans way back and gives me a look to stop. I am worried because I have no evidence of her eating and its been a while since I last saw her eat. Any advice on feeding? I am worried and I wanted to ask if anyone knows how long after their final molt do they usually live so I can spend more quality time with her. She really is the sweetest thing I have ever owned & I love her dearly. I am not ready for my bby girl to go but if it is near time I would like to emotionally prepare myself. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you.
