Not quite an animal, but this was pretty cool. He hung out on our picture window for a couple of days, then I took him into the city to show my nieces and nephew, before releasing him into a park.

I love them… I keep seeing them in the herp shops, and have debated on buying one. (I didn’t keep this one because I didn’t have a set up nor did I know what to feed it at the time) I don’t think it’d make a very interactive pet, but it was cool nonetheless. In the meantime I’m biding my time till I can get some reptiles again. How’s Bob, btw?

They don’t survive as well up here, Steph, I do see them occasionally, but not nearly as much as you would down there.

Mantis and bird

This is real yes. Big tropical mantis take small birds.

If you ever encounter a large praying mantis: never wave your finger in front of it. It will bite. And it hurts.

Did you know that female mantis bite the head or their male partner off after the mating act?

Its the reason the praying mantis is one of the headhunting symbols with the Asmat in New Guinea
