It's from the curved part of a 2 liter soda bottle. Inspiration for the trap came from the article I mention here:

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...r=asc&start=10

It took a couple of trys to get it right so there weren't too many fingers. Of course, even though the first mantis fell for it on the first night, the second (the one I netted) never went near it.

Good luck.
Matt

Yeah, that is a bit off track. Hmmm. Well, clownin also mentioned interest in it so, perhaps you two can work something out. If you still need a home for it by next week, I could probably make it to the annapolis area next Sat. Let me know.

Oh, and does the one you have now look like the one in the pic?

Actually, no. The one I netted is brown, rather then the blue/green.
