Thanks, but if I remember correctly Mantis Shrimps don't exhibit much parental care other than carrying the eggs around. I actually had several mantis shrimp species in the past (I used to live in Hawaii, and this one species was very common in my local beach). Also, they aren't insects.

Thanks, though. I'll consider getting another thumb-splitter ;)

Also, you can edit a previous post rather than posting four extremely chronically similar posts (that's quadruple posting and spamming!). It's okay, though, you're new. I actually did the same thing until only a few months ago.
