The moment they're born, they're on their own. I've seen at least 40 of them from one egg sack. They come out pale white but quickly turn brown as their exoskeleton hardens and darkens. They can't fly yet but are able to run quickly, even on windows. I was able to capture a few and let them go outside. I wish I could have watched how the female built and created her nest and laid her clutch. The outside of the egg sack felt like hard, burlap that was glued. They dug thru the bottom of the sack and then all dropped down one at a time. #nature #hatchlings #egg #nest #prayingmantis #mantis #bug #bugs #alwaysaloha #aloha
