The other day I found these egg cases. The first one I know is a praying mantis. The second one, I think, is also a praying mantis. They should hatch in about a month. Each egg case has around 200-500 praying mantises in them.
Here are some fun monarch butterfly facts:
Monarchs typically ride air currents of 800-1200 feet, The highest recorded was 11,000 feet!
Monarchs fly at a rate of 10-12 MPH.
Monarchs travel an average of 25 miles a day.
The largest known monarch migration site in Mexico is 216.21721 square miles.
Monarchs can flap their wings 120 times a minute.
A group of monarchs is called a congregation.
A group of monarch caterpillars is called an army.
A newly hatched caterpillar gains about 2,700 times its original weight before reaching chrysalis stage.
A large caterpillar can eat an entire milkweed leaf in less then 4 minutes.
“If we’re gonna fly, we fly like eagles
Arms out wide
If we’re gonna fear, we fear no evil
We will rise
By your power, we will go
By your spirit, we are bold
If we’re gonna stand, we stand as giants
If we’re gonna walk, we walk as lions”
-Lions by Skillet –
I found this quote the other day, (I can’t remember where)
” I hate when People see Me at the super market and are like:
‘Hey what are you doing here?’
And I’m like ‘Oh you know hunting elephants’.”

Here is what I have in stock:
