Praying Mantises eat other bugs, when their little you should feed them flightless fruit flies, which you can buy at the pet store. When they get older the eat bigger bugs, like crickets. Its a good idea that if you cant take care of it anymore you should let it go. All caterpillars dont eat leaves, and even the ones that do eat different types of leaves.

Hi, AL | (none)
I'm actually from Australia. Sonia, you can start off by catching lady bugs and letting them free when you're finished. Build tehm a home in a chinese container and see whether they like it. You can usually find them in leafy bushes.
