The mantis ootheca is a container in Fallout: New Vegas
- Two of these containers can be found in the Goodsprings schoolhouse.
- Six of them can be found in Vault 22
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.
