Mantis Contemplating Me


If you've ever sat and stared at praying mantis, you may have struck by it's uncanny tendency to stare right back. Which always seemed odd, for an insect. Maybe that's why, as a kid, I always left them alone – I always just assume let them be. But finding a praying mantis was still always a treat.

I've long since moved and I haven't seen a praying mantis in a long time. Never to fear... mantisuk.com can easily remedy this by supplying us with a wide variety of extraordinary mantids! Their sister site, bugsuk.com, is there for those of us who are more interested in the likes of stickbugs, millipedes, tarantulas, toads, hermit crabs and other exotic alternative pets.

By the way, there is a big plus to these alternative creatures. When they die, they can be eaten!

Update: This is unbelievable: a praying mantis, eating a hummingbird (via: Boing Boing)
