That time again…

Liam molted early this morning and it’s been exactly 10 days since he last molted. The others will follow suit closely tomorrow. 😀 Hopefully they’ll all be ok and will all get through it though. Molting is an extremely stressful and hard part of their lives and not all of them reach maturity because most of them die when they molt. It’s a sad time and I usually stay up with them when they molt to make sure they don’t land on their backs and can easily move around. My first praying mantis (Jumper) molted for the last time and landed on her back so her wings dried wrong and she could never fly while it also shortened her lifespan. 😦 However, I’m here to think positively and I’m sure all five will do just fine. 😀
