The mantis ootheca is a container in Fallout: New Vegas



While normally empty, the mantis ootheca may contain mantis eggs.

Effects of player actions

Shooting a mantis ootheca destroys it and results in several giant mantis nymphs spawning in its place. This will always result in the destruction of any items that may be inside.


Mantis oothecae appear only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the Scenes

An ootheca is a type of egg mass made by any member of a variety of species (usually insects or mollusks).
