To say the least, I was quite stunned when my wife and daughter brought home this Praying Mantis. They found in on the way home from school, and naturally, it's been a point of interest ever since.
What was even more amazing was how hungry this guy was. He absolutely devoured a piece of raw hamburger chunks at a time. I can see now why they are such an important part of our environment since they'll eat anything you put in front of them.
